Mutiple String values for the category

Mutiple String values for the category

Mutiple String values for the category

Hi All,
I am trying to update the document metadata in ECM using the livelink API.
One attribute is of type 'com.opentext.livelink.service.core.StringValue', but it has multiple rows showing on ECM.
So I tried giving comma delimiter for the multiple values, but they show up like below: (a, b, c should come in 3 different rows.)

I assume I should be using something like this, "TYPEID_LIVELINK_STRMULTI", but couldn't find a similar one in the com.opentext.livelink packages.
Appreciate any input on this.


RE: Mutiple String values for the category

Again I would suggest you look at examples in the OT site or my site
LL stores each attribute in a list so if there is an attribute called

MyCat:MyAtt="myvalue" internally the value is stored as {"myvalue" ,"myvalue2" } or more or less one can say
These are called "Multi Value Attributes" the category should support it.
also "TYPEID_LIVELINK_STRMULTI" is equivalent to one TextBox of HTML that can be MVA as well.

Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone?

Thanks appnair!

Went through your code, and got the solution.
Just added the values one after the other.
