Using Data List values in Share Form

Jump to solution

Hi all,
probably this is a "more than an already seen question" but..
I would like to use the values stored in a datalist as a drop-down list to set some fields in creation/edit content form.
In example "product id" coming from the Products data list
Have I to write a custom field-validator?
Are there some well expalined example of a such thing?

Thanks a lot

Hi:

There are some addons that provide that functionality. In the following link there are some options for your problem:

Hello Douglas,

does your addon works with CM 5.1?

After installing the addon we can´t see the new "Value Assistance List" when creating a new data list.

We'd like use it to fill advanced search form fields from data list values.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it works.

The list types you should see are 1 Level Value Assistance List and 2 Level Cascading Value Assistance List

If those are not present when you try to create a new datalist, then it might be an install issue.

Please, share the steps you followed to install it, and a screen shot of the datalist screen.

Sure Douglas C. R. Paes... We have followed the standard installing amp procedure:

1.- Stop Alfresco

2.- Install both amp's files (apply_amps.bat)

3.- Clean Tomcat (clean_tomcat.bat)

4.- List installed amps (they are listed on both alfresco and share war's)

5.- Restart Alfresco.

6.- Check alfresco.log (the log is ok)

But nothing in Share Module Manager screen nor new custom data lists are available when create new data list.

These are the screenshots:

Is there any other addon installed in the same server?

I can see the "System messages" list there.

Maybe there is something breaking it.

I know it works because I use it in almost all the projects I work on.

Hello Douglas C. R. Paes‌,

we are testing your addon and in the Advanced Search form, the solution works perfecly but we have doubts.

When we use <config evaluator="model-type" condition="modelo:tipo">, the "Advanced Search form" shows dynamic-dropdown controls, but "pop-up Edit Metadata form" don't show it.

And when we use <config evaluator="node-type" condition="modelo:tipo">, "pop-up Edit Metadata form" shows dynamic-dropdown controls, but "Advanced Search form" don't show it.

We are following How to Use the Addon section in GitHub - dgcloud/alfresco-value-assistance: Configurable value assistance module for Alfresco Share ... 

but we are stuck on it.

Can you clarify us how to make pop-up Metadata Edit works with dynamic-dropdown.ftl as in Advanced Search form?

Thank you in advance.

Well, there are several sub-items inside of those model-type and node-type config sections, and if you need all of them to share the same form, then you have to configure all of them.

Examples:

<config evaluator="node-type" condition="modelo:tipo">
<forms>
   <!-- Default form configuration for the modelo:tipo type -->
      <form> <!-- No ID for this one -->

      </form>

      <!-- Document Library pop-up Edit Metadata form -->
      <form id="doclib-simple-metadata">

      </form>

      <!-- Document Library Inline Edit form -->
      <form id="doclib-inline-edit">
      </form>
   </forms>
</config>

<config evaluator="model-type" condition="modelo:tipo">
   <forms>

      <!-- Default form configuration for the modelo:tipo type -->     
      <form> <!-- Again, no ID for this one -->
      </form>

      <!-- Search form -->
      <form id="search">
      </form>
   </forms>
</config>

So, this is not related with the addon, but with share forms engine.

You can learn more by using the OOTB share's source code at share/share-form-config.xml at develop · Alfresco/share · GitHub
