Avatar

Level 4

Hi, I am facing issue while capturing value from dropdown in AEM.

The value are stored but the words after space is ignored.

 

e.g.- If "united states" is selected then only "united" is stored in the variable and "states" is ignored

please help me find the cause of it and how to fix it

I believe you are populating the options using datasource, then please let us know what are you getting against 'value' key as shown below -

@rahul234dabas , I would suggest to use values without spaces in it but it should still work with spaces.

 

Please find below sample dialog.xml and it works for me.

sorry @Siva_Sogalapalli this is not what I am looking for ....I am populating dropdown values dynamically and from there on the values after spaces are being ignored...the way that you have showed works perfectly but I am looking for something else. 

Thank you
