HI All,

Thanks for help. Just got to know we have one mandatory property in multi-field components for all the cq:widget is key. If we did not declare the key property in all the cq:widget then we will not be able to retain the value for same.

Below is updated screenshot.

Any idea what it could be?

Hi,

The links provided by Manju for Touch UI Multifield. As I can see that you have issue in Multifield in Classic UI.

Also, Please check this Classic UI article for Multifield: Adobe Experience Manager Help | Developing a custom Adobe Experience Manager Quiz Component

Can you please help me to look above screenshot why the dialog is getting empty after i click on edit and there is nothing get stored in title property in CRX but is saved in abc property in CRX.

Most of the community effort now into Multi-Field is for Touch UI and later AEM versions (ie - 6.3) such as: Scott's Digital Community: Creating an AEM HTML Template Language 6.3 component that uses a Multifie...

However, this uses ACS-Commons. See if the approach we talk about here works in Classic MF.

As you can see from this article - the data is stored as JSON data.

Hi,

I am dynamically populating drop-down which is inside the multi field, but rest of the items inside multi field retaining their value except drop-down.

Could anyone help on that.
