Using Granite DataSource objects to populate Experience Manager 6.2 Touch UI Select objects

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.2 Touch UI component that contains a drop-down control that can be used within the AEM Touch UI view. An AEM author selects drop-down values during design time. For example, an author can select a USA state value from an AEM component that displays address information. A drop-down control is populated by using a com.adobe.granite.ui.components.ds.DataSource object. For information, see DataSource.

Once you create a DataSource object, its data can be used to dynamically populate a drop-down control, as shown in this illustration.


This development article steps you through how to build an AEM 6.2 HTL component by using an AEM Maven Archetype 10 project. Then it discusses how to populate a drop-down field in the component's dialog using a DataSource object.
