Hi,

We are having a multifield with a dropdown selection(AssetType)  having 3 values(Image,DAM Video,Youtube video) inside the multifield.

When we select the image in the drop down, image related multifield container fields will get displayed and two containers(DAM Video and Youtube Video) will be hidden. Now we will author the image related fields.

Next we will be adding one more multifield item by selecting the drop down as "youtube" now youtube related multifield container fields will get displayed and two containers(DAM Video and Image) will be hidden. Now we will author the Youtube video related fields.

Dialog properties are getting stored on the page as below.

{"assetType":"image","imagePath":"/content/dam/images/IMG-NeilHausmann-Profile-0.97_1-2018-13.jpg","altText":"Neil Hausman Headshot","imageTitle":"Test","imageCaption":"Test","imagecopyright":"Test","videoPath":"","videoTitleS7":"","videoDescriptionS7":"","videoThumbnailS7":"","videoId":"","videoTitle":"","videoDescription":"","videoThumbnail":""}

{"assetType":"youtube","imagePath":"","altText":"","imageTitle":"","imageCaption":"","imagecopyright":"","videoPath":"","videoTitleS7":"","videoDescriptionS7":"","videoThumbnailS7":"","videoId":"test","videoTitle":"Test ","videoDescription":"Test","videoThumbnail":""}

Now when we open the authored dialog on the page values are not displaying the authored values.

Need more details on the setup. Can you log a daycare ticket with reproducible steps and share the component package?

That should be the quickest way to resolve this issue.

Try to test on the latest SP/CFP level of whatever AEM version you are using since there were few known issues with multifield.

Alternatively you can see the following article where it uses Coral multi-field components for similar purpose:
