Get selected object's ID on custom dialog in D2

edited August 4, 2014 in Documentum


How can i get the selected object's ID on a custom created dialog (using plugin). When i right click on the object and choose a custom menu option like "Modify", I want an action to be called that would popup the dialog having the selected object's ID.

Thanks and Regards,

    You will get selected object Id in your custom dialog plugin from D2fsContext context parameter in follwoing method

    public XmlNode buildDialog(D2fsContext context, List<Attribute> attributes).

    see below code snippet:

    public XmlNode buildDialog(D2fsContext context, List<Attribute> attributes){

        IDfPersistentObject persistentObject = context.getFirstObject();  

        if ((persistentObject != null) || ((persistentObject instanceof IDfSysObject)))


          IDfSysObject sysObject = (IDfSysObject)persistentObject;

            IdfId selected_Id =  sysObject.getObjectId();


  • But D2fsContext context parameter always have one object in it even when the dialog is triggered from multi document selection. Any solution to get the context of all selected documents in custom Dialog?

    D2fsContext contains all selected documents. Code for getting all objects:

    ArrayList<IDfPersistentObject> objList = new ArrayList<IDfPersistentObject>();
            for (int i = 0; i < d2fsContext.getObjectCount(); ++i) {

    Hope it helps someone.
