Cascade drop-down list in Share

Hi,

I got requirement to have cascade drop-down list in Share,  change the constraint list of the second drop-down list based upon the value selected in the first drop-down list.

Any sample how to implement this would be great help!

Thanks!

Re: Cascade drop-down list in Share

Hello.

Please, take a look at the following projects:

GitHub - douglascrp/share-form-control-dependency: I've made some changes to the source code in orde... 

GitHub - douglascrp/alfresco-value-assistance: Configurable value assistance module for Alfresco Sha... 

The first one is simple, as it uses static lists of values.

The second one uses datalistas as the source for the list of values.

Re: Cascade drop-down list in Share

Thanks Doughlas!

I was looking for the first one with static list of values, added both the "filtered-selectone.ftl" and "parent-filter-selectione.ftl" to my existing sample model project. The first drop-down looks good but the second one displays the first half of the value not the second part of the value.

and it displays like this in the details view page.

Can you please let me know what I'm missing.

Thank you very much for your help!

Re: Cascade drop-down list in Share

Can you share your xml files? Both the content model and the share config?

Hi Douglas,

Here is my content-model.xml

</constraint>

<constraint name="acme:subAreaConstraint" type="LIST">

Re: Cascade drop-down list in Share

Sorry for the late response.

How about the localization files?

You should try to set the values using the pattern bellow:

listconstraint.sample_areaConstraint.1!1=Área A

Re: Cascade drop-down list in Share

Try the bellow code for filtered-selectone.ftl 

 

<#include "/org/alfresco/components/form/controls/common/utils.inc.ftl" />

<#if field.control.params.optionSeparator??>
<#assign optionSeparator=field.control.params.optionSeparator>
<#else>
<#assign optionSeparator=",">
</#if>
<#if field.control.params.labelSeparator??>
<#assign labelSeparator=field.control.params.labelSeparator>
<#else>
<#assign labelSeparator="|">
</#if>

<#assign fieldValue=field.value>

<#if fieldValue?string == "" && field.control.params.defaultValueContextProperty??>
<#if context.properties[field.control.params.defaultValueContextProperty]??>
<#assign fieldValue = context.properties[field.control.params.defaultValueContextProperty]>
<#elseif args[field.control.params.defaultValueContextProperty]??>
<#assign fieldValue = args[field.control.params.defaultValueContextProperty]>
</#if>
</#if>

<div class="form-field">

<#else>
<div id="${fieldHtmlId}" class="missing-options">${msg("form.control.selectone.missing-options")}</div>
</#if>
</#if>
</div>

Hope this will help.
