Sort Tree Nodes of Browse Dialog in pathfield

Avatar

Level 9

Hi All,

I was trying the thing mentioned in the link[by directly uploading the package provided] 

http://experience-aem.blogspot.in/2014/04/aem-cq-56-sort-tree-nodes-of-browse-dialog-pathfield.html in OOTB 5.6.1 instance.

After I uploaded the package, hit the page http://localhost:4502/cf#/content/geometrixx-outdoors-mobile/en/men/pants.touch.html[Advanced Tab, Login page selection] in OOTB instance to check if it is working or not. But it doesn't seem to be working.

Is it something like 

- It is not applicable to the thing I am checking?

- Anything else needs to be done?

Any thoughts on the above will be helpful.

Hi, The blog post is about using pathfiled in component dialogs; in any component dialog using pathfield, make sure a "dialogopen" listener is registered 

dialogopen="function(){ExperienceAEM.sortTags(this, false);} "

In your case i guess it's a page dialog, getting items from /libs/foundation/components/page/fieldset_sitestructure.json.jsp

I am not suggesting any modification to /libs, but for it to work a "dialogopen" event has to be registered

Hi sreeknc,

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I do have any idea on the explanation you have provided. I thought I just need to install the package mentioned there and changes will be reflected.

Will try to go through these concepts and post back my queries/doubts.

Hi Scott,


First of all, thanks a lot for your reply.

I took a look at the documentation you have mentioned, but not able to understand anything.


I implemented the article on my local instance, by following your article and it seems to be working fine.http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-custom-cq-tree.html.

I was trying to understand the code you have written in http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-custom-cq-tree.html. Went through multiple times, but could not get a very good understanding.

Finding it tough to get that thing to work.

Hi Sreeknc,

Thanks a lot for your reply.

1] So, from what I understand is for the package provided in that link, I have to make some modifications to make it work? (such that the tree nodes apppear either in ascending or descending order as shown in http://experience-aem.blogspot.in/2014/04/aem-cq-56-sort-tree-nodes-of-browse-dialog-pathfield.html)

2] Also, what I am trying to achieve in my OOTB 5.6.1 instance is to have the tree nodes appear either in ascending or descending order , whenever such an option to select tree nodes appear.So, this code will not suffice and I have to make changes to it?

3] I went through the code provided in the link and could just get a overall picture of the logic. If you could briefly explain, would be helpful.

Your thoughts/pointers/sample code would be really really helpful.

Hi All,

http://experience-aem.blogspot.in/2014/04/aem-cq-56-sort-tree-nodes-of-browse-dialog-pathfield.html

I was trying to implement this article in OOTB 5.6.1 instance. But I am struggling to get this to work on my instance.

I followed steps 1-4 provided in the article.

Doubts as below :

1] I am not sure where the code in step 5 has to be pasted.

2] In the diagram below step 5 ,there is a  tree structure created. I could not understand what exactly the nodes in tree structure below "select-path" indicate. If anybody could let me know what exactly it is. It would be really helpful.

3] If I want to create that tree structure, need details on the below:

select-path : what should the node type be ?

dialog : should the node type be cq:Dialog for this ?

items : should the node type be cq:WidgetCollection for this ?

tab1 : should the node type be cq:Widget for this ?

items : should the node type be cq:WidgetCollection for this ?

path : should the node type be cq:Widget for this ?

listeners : should the node type be nt:unstructured for this ?

4] What code should be pasted/written in select-path.jsp.

Any thoughts/pointers on this will be really helpful.

In the solve remark - you have to ensure that dialogopen event is defined.

Take a look at the out of the box samples - more information on that here:

http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/developing/widgets.html

. Did you take a look at this community artilce. It will help you in general component development for AEM - including working with event handlers, how to define them using scripts, and how to invoke backend services to get JCR data:

Also - be sure to use the AEM widget API reference located here:
