Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1232) Issue in confuring MultiValueEditor
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2019 08:21:00 GMT


Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-1232:

So when you edit an entry, you basically have access to all its attributes and all the associated
values. But this is not necessarily what you want. I suppose that you want to manage the {{uniqueMember}}
attribute and its values, by allowing the user to pick new groups from the DIT. 

The biggest issue I see here is how to qualify what is a 'group'. This is a semantic issue.
There are many {{ObjectClass}} that can qualify a group, like {{posixGroup}}, {{groupOfnames}},
etc. Finding entries that belong to such groups from the DIT is trivial, but selecting the
appropriate elements isn't.

What I can think of for you example is to propose a list of entries belonging to a selected
{{ObjectClass}} so that you can add/delete them.

Regarding technicalities, when it comes to access the DIT, I suggest you have a look at the
{{DnValueEditor}} which makes it possible to browse the DIT to fetch another entry's DN.

> Hi Team,
> I am trying to create a new value editor by taking existing MultiValueEditor but somehow
I am getting an error while instantiating MultiValueEditor class.
> Steps I have followed :
> 1) Copied DN editor source and configuration and replica the DN editor as MultiValue
> 2) in plugin.xml of value editors package, I have modified like below
>      <valueEditor
>         class=""
>         icon="resources/icons/dneditor.gif"
>         name="%ValueEditor_MultiValueEditor_name">
>       <syntax syntaxOID=""/>
>     </valueEditor>
> 3) I am able to see new editor in edit value preferences but when choose and edit the
value I am getting attached error.
> I understand one thing in plugin.xml of value editors supporting only AbstractDialogStringValueEditor
its throwing error if try to extend CellEditor. could you please explain to me how to use
multivlauededitor to edit multi values.
> Thanks,
> Raju Garaga
