I am trying to create a validation function for a textfield depending on the content of other textfield in a cq dialog in AEM 6.5.

I am trying to send within the cq:data the textfield name but I can get AEM to render these data attributes on DOM.

 

This is a piece of the cq dialog

<creditsTitle
  jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
  fieldLabel="Credits Title"
  name="./creditsTitle_t"/>
<creditsValue
  jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
  fieldLabel="Credits"
  validation="custo-validation"
  name="./creditsValue_t">
  <granite:data jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
   dependent-name="creditsTitle_t"/> </creditsValue>

And here is a ss of what gets rendered:

I want to be able to send to the "custo-validation" a parameter with the name of the field that it needs to check,in this case is the one above (creditsTitle_t), but it can be anywhere.

So far the only way I have found is with the granite:data but i can't get it working

cq:dialog granite

Hi @MaynorSong ,

Create dialog validation js with below code & category name "cq.authoring.dialog", then add your custom input validation logic based on these two input field values.

 

(function(ns, $, $document){
$(window).adaptTo("foundation-registry").register("foundation.validation.validator",{
selector: "[data-validation='custo-validation']",
validate: function(el){
var creditsValue = el.value;
var creditsTitleValue = $('[name="./creditsTitle_t"]').val();

if(creditsValue && !creditsTitleValue){//add custom input validation code here based on two input field values.
return "Please Configure Credits Title";
}
}
});
})(Granite.author, Granite.$, Granite.$(document));

 

<creditsTitle
  jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
  fieldLabel="Credits Title"
  name="./creditsTitle_t"/>
<creditsValue
  jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
  sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
  fieldLabel="Credits"
  validation="custo-validation"
  name="./creditsValue_t">

 

Hope this helps!

I was trying to avoid hardwiring the r creditsTitleValue = $('[name="./creditsTitle_t"]').val(); . I want the name to be dynamic. That is why I am trying to send it with granite:data so i can grab it from the DOM, but i cant render it.

 

Is it possible to add granite data to textfield? That's my main problem

@MaynorSong 

Yes its possible add granite:data to textfield(refer below screenshot same data attribute rendered from granite:data) & you can access dependent input as mentioned below.

 

validate: function(el){
var creditsValue = el.value;
var dependentName = $(el).data('dependent-name');
var dependentValue = $('[name="./'+dependentName+'"]');

if(creditsValue && !dependentValue ){//add custom input validation code here based on two input field values.
return "Please Configure Dependent Input";
}
}

I wonder what am I doing wrong on the cq dialog xml, I cant get it to display the data attribute, can you please share the xml file where you took the screenshot from? I mean the whole file, I know you shared the piece of code previously 

@MaynorSong 

Please find below dialog.xml & FYI its the same 2 fields which you have posted above.

Hi @MaynorSong,

Could you please elaborate on exact validation/logic you are trying to achieve with two text fields. 

In particular, significance of term "can be anywhere" from your query in original post.
