I do agree with scott and ratna. If you are trying to open a dialog in preview mode may be you have to revisit your requirements

Are you referring to a component dialog? A component dialog that contains a path finder is typically opened when an author hovers over a component in Design mode in the Author instance. There is no need to have a button to open a component dialog.

To see use of a PathFinder granite data type (granite/ui/components/foundation/form/pathbrowser) in a component dialog - see this article:

Hi. thanks for your reply. But we need to open the dialog in content page on click of the button in preview mode. May be there must be some method for toch Ui like we have in classic mode we use below method.

CQ.wcm.EditBase.showDialog(editRollOver, CQ.wcm.EditBase.EDIT);

I agree with scott smacdonald2008 For end users , anything you open can be handled via Jquery actions.

     Can you let me know your exact use case? May ne I can help? I am trying to understand the requirement like this in preview mode in author ?

Hi Rohit,

As far as I know in AEM, you can view the page in preview mode that how the page looks after authored.

It is not possible to open the dialog in preview mode. You can author or open the dialog only in Edit mode.

Hope this helps!

Ratna is correct - you cannot open an AEM dialog for a component in Preview mode.
