Poll Plugin Developer Guide - Component Instantiation

Instantiate a Poll Component

You should instantiate a poll component, rather than using the Channel Editor component catalog, if you want to provide the webmaster with a fixed website layout.

You have to do this using the CMS Console. Navigate to /hst:[your project]/hst:configurations/[your project]/hst:pages and build a potentially nested structure of hst:components representing your desired page layout. Use inheritance by means of the hst:referencecomponent attribute where appropriate. Your poll component will be referred to by a leaf-component of this structure.

Setup the following attributes for the component representing the poll:

Attribute Value
hst:componentclassname The class name of your custom poll component, or org.onehippo.forge.poll.component.PollComponent if you use the default component provided by the plug-in.
hst:template The name of the rendering template you just created, or poll.component.ftl if you want to use the default rendering provided by the plug-in.
hst:parameternames This is a multi-value attribute, representing the component's parameter names. See here for a description of the poll component's parameters.
hst:parametervalues This is a multi-value attribute, representing the component's parameter values. The ordering of the parameter values must match the ordering of the parameter names.
