Image - V3 - Core component - Does not show the dialog on AEM 6.5

Avatar

Level 2

On our project we are seeing an issue with Image core component - v3, that on edit of the component, we do not see the dialog box popup. We can add an image but dialog does not show. The same is also reproduceable on a Wknd site ( https://github.com/adobe/aem-guides-wknd/tree/aem-guides-wknd-3.2.0 )

 

Our stack:

AEM 6.5

Service pack 6.5.19

Java 11.0.2

Core components 2.23.4

 

Steps:

Add a new page using Content page template

Add an Image component > select "Configure" option, the popup does not display.

Add an image - drag/drop an asset, but still "configure" option does not show the popup.

Seeing this error on Console

We are just overlaying the Image and did not add any customizations.

.content.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jcr:root xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0" xmlns:cq="http://www.day.com/jcr/cq/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0"
    jcr:primaryType="cq:Component"
    jcr:title="Image"
    sling:resourceSuperType="core/wcm/components/image/v3/image"
    componentGroup="Project - Content"/>

 

and _cq_editConfig.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jcr:root xmlns:cq="http://www.day.com/jcr/cq/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" xmlns:nt="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0"
    cq:inherit="{Boolean}true"
    jcr:primaryType="cq:EditConfig"/>

 

 

The same works on we.retail site that uses Image core component v2 ( sling:resourceSuperType="core/wcm/components/image/v2/image" https://github.com/Adobe-Marketing-Cloud/aem-sample-we-retail/blob/master/ui.apps/src/main/content/j... )

Thanks @Anish-Sinha 

 

We identified the issue is with our custom code which was interfering with the core components.

The fix:

We were using Image component in one of our Teaser component. We removed the defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL. 

 

 

// PREVIOUS: @Model(adaptables = {SlingHttpServletRequest.class}, defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL, resourceType = "project/components/teaser", adapters = {Teaser.class})
@Model(adaptables = {SlingHttpServletRequest.class}, resourceType = "project/components/teaser", adapters = {Teaser.class})
@Exporter(name = "jackson", extensions = "json")
public class ProjectTeaserModel extends AbstractComponent implements Teaser {
  ...
  // PREVIOUS: @ValueMapValue
  @ValueMapValue(injectionStrategy = InjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL)
  @Getter
  public String accessibilityText;
  ...
}

 

 

And the "Configure" dialog shows up now:

@SurenCap as per documentation you need to configure featured image in page properties before using Core component v3 version...

thanks @Shashi_Mulugu but i cannot find that in docs? Assuming the "configure" dialog should show up for this core image component - https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-core-components/using/wcm-components/imag...

also we just wanted to use this as a basic image.

Hi @SurenCap ,

I've just tested this on a newly installed AEM 6.5.19 version, and it functions flawlessly. The image component behaves as expected, whether it's within the WKND project or a custom project generated with the latest archetype. Perhaps you could attempt this on a clean vanilla instance to rule out any interference from custom scripts.

Thanks, this fixed the issue for me as well! Even though I have absolutely no idea why.

this works for me also. But removing defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL. caused null pointers when teaser component is getting instantiated because of the addition of  new default method in the sling model 

/**
* Returns the primary link of this teaser.
*
* @return the primary link of this teaser
* @since com.adobe.cq.wcm.core.components.models 12.21.0
*/
@Nullable
default Link getLink() {
return null;
}

if you override this method in your custom Teaser model using delegation pattern, it will be fixed.
