In AEM, can I prevent Sidekick from showing? by howtoaem Blog


Under certain circumstances, I want to prevent the Sidekick from being displayed on a page. I tried some things:

Removing the init.jsp include. This works, but it also prevents certain CQ javascript libraries from being loaded, and I need these libraries.
Adding a jquery onload event to hide the sidekick.

$(function() {CQ.WCM.getSidekick().hide()});
This doesn't work because the sidekick isn't loaded yet.

Adding a jquery onload event with a timeout.

$(function() {
setTimeout(function() {
}, 1)
But this is not reliable. Setting the timeout too low will have a high chance of failure. Setting it too high will cause it to appear then disappear, which is unacceptable.
