This BLOG discusses alternative options to use BI Hierarchies within Visual Composer! Moya Watson wrote a great blog here: Model BI Hierachies with Visual composer. I’m going to discuss how to use hierarchies from the WAD within Visual Composer
All the technical details are included in my how to guide to implement this scenario. It works based on portal eventing technology. This how to guide is geared towards a no code approach.
The advantages to using this approach are that you can integrate via a button to call WAD dialogs to choose multiple hierarchy nodes or you could use a UI element to embed hierarchy selection directly within your Visual Composer models. Examples of both options are displayed in the how to guide.
Here’s an example of hierarchy dialogs:
Here’s an example hierarchy UI elements from the WAD
This guide shows how to integrate any UI Elements between Visual Composer and the Web Application Designer without having to write custom code. You can build a nested template and use this code in reusable applications! In addition, this is supplemental to Moya’s hierarchy solution so now you have multiple options for hierarchies!
