Hi there I wonder what is the best way to get a CMS value in a value-field of a JSF/HMTL dialog.

My first Approach was:

<h:outputText value="<%=ivy.cms.co('/#{data.type}/dialog/infoText')%>" </h:outputText>

But this wont work due to the '<' in front of the '%'. My current apporach now is to read the CMS values in the dialog-bean by a scriptstep. Then accessing them by

<h:outputText value="<%=ivy.cms.co('/#{data.lblInfoText')%>" </h:outputText>

but this can't be the best solution. Does anyone knows the proper way to add CMS values in a jsf value-field?

thx in advance!


This is the exact line I use in the code.

<h:outputText value="#{ivy.cms.co('/#{data.sma}/dialog/lblInputtext')}" style="height: 300px; width:450px"/>

In this line i eliminated the dynamic sma #{data.sma}.

<h:outputText value="#{ivy.cms.co('/sma25/dialog/lblInputtext')}" style="height: 300px; width:450px"/>

Neither of these lines work. They do compile but when I press on the link in the engine-browser i get the following exception still:

HTTP Status 500 - javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Property 'co' not found on type ch.ivyteam.ivy.page.engine.jsp.JspCms

type Exception report

Dear Nikel

Unfortunately your line: <h:outputtext value="#{ivy.cms.co('/your/folder/in/cms/yourLabel')}"/>

Triggers the following exception:

javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Property 'co' not found on type ch.ivyteam.ivy.page.engine.jsp.JspCms

Do you have any other ideas how to Access the CMS from whitin JSF-Code?

@Nikel regarding if I use a CMS-JSF page or a HTML-Page

I am using a HTML-user-page.

@Daniel: Something seems to be wrong here. This code should work (retested it). Did you try it in a "clean" projects environment? Did you recheck spelling? Because in your initial question you used a el-Expression as well. Otherwise I've to resign here. Sorry. Or provide full code example in your initial question.

I did a full clean. And the spelling is correct. I added the code I use. But the Problem seems to be the method call. The method you use simply doesn't exist in the API in this context. :-(

Have a look at the FormDemo in the HtmlDialogDemos it seems to work there like this: "<p:outputlabel value="#{ivy.cms.co('/ch.ivyteam.htmldialog.demo/FormDemo/Labels/Name')}" for="Name"/> "

After some fiddling it worked.

<h:outputText value="#{ivy.cms.co('/your/folder/in/cms/yourLabel')}" />

I can't figure why it didn't work the whole time. In the end I changed nothing compared to the answer of Nikel.

Thx to all who helped!
