Hi all,

I have created Liferay’s Ext to modify on the document library's JSPs.
Specifically, I want to modify on toolbars.jsp, its ok, I know how to modify, but i dont know what i change on portal-ext.properties file to appear the enchantments.

So, How can i know which specific attribute i change or set?
Can anyone help me?

Thanks All and Regards,

Hi Haythem Al Shaikh Ahmed,

Instead of ext-plugin, I would suggest to create a hook plugin. Take a look our Hooks documentation.

You don't need to modify portal-ext.properties.

Like Sampsa replied, just create a hook. Following page provides information on hook.

Thanks Mr. Sampsa Sohlman

i tried your suggestion before moving to Ext plugin, but again i stuck by the following
i added button on the toolbar.jsp in document library portlet, this button make an action by sending it to my own class in com.liferay.portlet.documentlibrary.action,
also i mapped the action in struts-config.xml and tried in struts-config-ext.xml , in all cases it gives NO Class Found.
Therefore i used the Ext plugin and i see its ease to use but i have some missing issue in properties files, There is no clear documentation for them.

Any suggestion or solution except the examples in development guide?

Thanks again

What missing issues? You're not giving us all the information necessary to answer your question. In the first post, you've only stated that you wanted to modify one jsp file when you actually want to add java classes as well. Liferay is outputting errors because you program has errors. Why do you think there's missing properties in portal-ext.properties?

I also think it should be possible to apply your changes by only using hook. Please read carefully:

I suggest to start with a clean Liferay instance and follow the above instructions to avoid problems caused by your previous experiments.

Milen, read Haythem's post. It's difficult to exactly know what's Haythem is trying to do because he's not explaining his situation clearly, but he's also trying to add his own Java classes too. The question is does he have to create a new java class or just add methods to an existing class.

Hi Mr. Milen,

I am applying your suggestion and everything is ok until when i reached to create portal.properties file inside example-hook/docroot/WEB-INF/src depend on its example with the following content: login.events.pre=com.liferay.sample.hook.LoginAction
and editing liferay-hook.xml inside example-hook/docroot/WEB-INF and add the following line above <custom-jsp-dir>:
<portal-properties>portal.properties</portal-properties>, and when i deploy the project then , it appears the following exception :

True!
However this:
i mapped the action in struts-config.xml and tried in struts-config-ext.xml

made me think the Haythem is actually trying to provide a custom Struts action - thus the suggestion.

Well it seems the portal can not find your portal.properties file. Can you check whether it is actually in the WAR file? Also double check you don't have a typo in the file name and/or inside the liferay-hook.xml file. For example on Windows one common issue is portal.properties file getting saved as portal.properties.txt

Milen, he created an ext plugin. He shouldn't have portal.properties file in his ext plugin. It seems like he's creating a mess.

Hitoshi, he was in the beginning. Now, as suggested, he is creating a hook:
when i reached to create portal.properties file inside example-hook/docroot/WEB-INF/src


Or at least this is how I understand the above statement!

First, Happy new Year and best wishes for you

I do double checked of the portal.properties file; there's in war file and lifray-hook.xml file has the exact name of portal.properties file.

what can i do in this case?
