Use below property

  • sling:hideChildren (String or String[])
    Contains the child node, or list of child nodes, to hide. The properties of the node will be maintained.
    The wildcard * hides all.

Please check

Hi,

what do you mean by field? could you please explain more with screenshot.

You have following options to hide field(resource / child nodes) and properties.

The resource merger provides the following properties:

  • sling:hideProperties (String or String[])
    Specifies the property, or list of properties, to hide.
    The wildcard * hides all.
  • sling:hideResource (Boolean)
    Indicates whether the resources should be completely hidden, including its children.
  • sling:hideChildren (String or String[])
    Contains the child node, or list of child nodes, to hide. The properties of the node will be maintained.
    The wildcard * hides all.

Hello Arun,

While inheriting a custom component, if we dont want the particlular field(Example: Some Image Field is not neccessary but all other fields we need). Then how to hide that particular image field.

Are you using sling:resourceSuperType or overlay(copy nodes from libs to apps)?

If you are using overlay then just just add property sling:hideChildren = childnodepath

There is another way to show or hide field using granite:renderCondition

As mentioned by Arun Patidar​ , just adding property sling:hideResource="{Boolean}true" in that overlayed field will help you to hide it. It works fine for me !!!
