How to Bind Multiline Editbox Through Repeat Control

I have a multi-line edit-box on my xpage which is hidden. I want to allow the user to edit its value through repeat control. I don’t want to allow the user to enter multiple values separated by comma.
To achieve this functionality follow these instructions:

  • Add a multi-line edit-box and a repeat control on your xpage. I assume that there is some value already in the edit-box.
  • Set var = item and indexVar = indexItem
  • Go to the iterator code of the repeat control and return the values of the multi-line edit-box as an array.
  • Add an edit-box inside repeat control.
  • To bind it with the multi-line edit-box, select advanced in data tab then select expression language.
  • Write item[index] in the scriptbox.
  • Preview your xpage.
