Sharing Dialog Between Components

Avatar

Level 1

I currently have navigation component that I need to split into three navigation sections. Unfortunately, the properties from the dialog will still be used in all sections. Is there anyway I can pull the properties from one component in another? I would like to avoid having duplicate dialogs.

Hi,

If you want to pull the properties from one dialog of component to other, you can use in below way.

xtype: cqinclude
path: /libs/foundation/components/carousel/dialog/items/carousel/items/playSpeed.infinity.json

See this below community article which discusses your use case:

Also, look into this thread discusses the same:

Hope this helps!

You can use sling:resourceSuperType. Lets say if you want to use the componentA dialog in componentB. Then you would need to add the below property to the componentB node.

name: sling:resourceSuperType

type: String

Value: /apps/[YOURPROJECT]/components/content/componentA
