Creating Adobe Experience Manager Components that use Nested Multifields

You can develop a custom Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) component that uses a nested multi-field control located in a dialog. A nested multi-field control is an inner multi-field control within an outer multi-field control and lets an author dynamically enter data. For example, assume the AEM control lists developers and each developer has an unknown number of skills to display. That is, within the inner multi-field, the author enter details such as professional skill set. The outer multi-field determines how may developers to display.

Consider the nested multi-field control located in the following illustration.

Creating Adobe Experience Manager Custom Column Components

You can develop a custom Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) column control component to address your business requirements. An AEM column control component lets an AEM author split the content in the main panel of the web-page into multiple columns. Using a component dialog, an author defines the number of columns required and then create, delete, or move content within each of the columns.


As specified, an author can change the number of columns and the border color by using the column's dialog.


This development article walks you through how to build this custom column component. To read this development article, click https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/custom_columns.html.
