Hi all. In 6.2 ootb there is no Checkbox field available in the Metadata Schema Editor. However upon closer inspection, file /libs/dam/gui/coral/components/admin/schemaforms/formbuilder/builditems.jsp has it commented out. If I overlay this file and uncomment, it becomes available, and seems to function, but upon further testing, is not functional, as values do not save out properly to JCR.

Anyone know what's up with this? Is this going to be addressed soon? Seems a little weird that this basic field missed the cut in an otherwise well thought-out editor. Is it up to the implementer to fix this?! Any advice appreciated.

I have the same issue with 6.1SP2.

For the sake of testing I have overlayed /apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms/default/image/jpeg/.content.xml with the following content (checkbox definition is taken from http://www.nateyolles.com/blog/2015/11/aem-checkboxes-using-sling-post-servlet):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <jcr:root xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" xmlns:nt="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0" xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0" jcr:primaryType="sling:Folder" type="text"> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <tabs jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/container"> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <tab1 jcr:title="Basic" tabid="f84cc8d6-60ab-474e-bdf8-a0b7a434f289" jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/section"> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <col1 jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/container"> <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"> <myCheckbox jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/foundation/form/checkbox" text="My Checkbox" name="./jcr:content/metadata/myCheckbox" renderReadOnly="{Boolean}true" value="true"/> </items> </col1> </items> </tab1> </items> </tabs> </items> </jcr:root>

Whenever I save the dialog the value is written out as Boolean true even if the checkbox is unchecked.

Any idea what is happening here?

Hey kristof – I ended up going down a rabbit hole with Daycare that left me... unimpressed. Let's leave it at that. Perhaps a solution was found but I ended up leaving the implementation for this particular project.

Regardless, having to go to support to hotfix a pretty basic use-case (a checkbox!), in my eyes, signifies that the functionality (Metadata Schema Editor and DAM UI rehaul) was simply not finished in time. (comments in source code back me up here). The Granite and CoralUI 2/3 documentation is unhelpful.

Have you considered using a dropdown with Yes/No values? It was the intermediary fix we put in place and was working sufficiently well.

Hope this helps –Matt

Yes, I guess a dropdown will have to do for now assuming those work. Thanks for the reply!
