I am writing a DWT TBB to get field value of multi level component link field. I have a component having componentlink field("list") and in those component i have another component link field("management"). Both componentLink fields are multivalued. I need to iterate those fields. But its not rendering the desired output may be because of misinterpretation of TemplateRepeatIndex. Did someone encounter this scenario.

Title of the component : @@title@@
<!-- TemplateBeginRepeat name="list" -->   
    <li class="accordion-item">
    <a href="#" class="accordion-link">@@Get("Fields.list[${TemplateRepeatIndex}].title")@@</a>
    <div class="board-members">
            <!-- TemplateBeginRepeat name="@@Get("Fields.list[${TemplateRepeatIndex}].management")@@" -->   
                <div class="member">
                    <p class="intro">@@Get("Fields.list.management[${TemplateRepeatIndex}].intro")@@</p>
            <!-- TemplateEndRepeat -->   

<!-- TemplateEndRepeat -->   
  • Can you confirm that you're using the DGX? – Nickoli Roussakov Mar 20 '14 at 13:26
  • @NickoliRoussakov yes i am using DGX and its working very fine. – AmateurCoder Mar 20 '14 at 13:33

You are right; If there is a loop in a loop the counters are not stored of the outer loop(s);


If you want to resolve this you can build a Custom Function (login required, Tridion 2011 documentation)

Or switch to the Razor Mediator that does support this kind of functionality out of the box :)

  • Or build a simple c# TBB to fetch the field values and place them on the package, or use the nested component template technique as described here: tridiondeveloper.com/… – Nickoli Roussakov Mar 20 '14 at 19:03
  • Can we use XSLT TBB ?? if yes , can you please provide some thoughts. – AmateurCoder Mar 23 '14 at 8:26

    Sure, you can use document() in XSLT to reference other components. See an example from Chris Summers. – Alvin Reyes Mar 24 '14 at 9:37
