confluence wysiwyg 4.x editor: how status-macro is implemented (advanced options directly on click on macro-box, without opening macro-editor)


how I can implement this kind of functionality in my own macro (could put there a list of choises, e.g. a user-name-list or directly textlist like "done", "started" and so on...

(see attached


Instead of the colour-boxes I want to add different behaviour for lots of additional macros of the same kind.

BTW: Would it be possible to make this pop-up display even when viewing the page to allow direct manipulation, in this case without the "Edit" and "Remove"-Buttons?

How can I do this in my own "status-macro V2.0" ?

Thanks for any hints and suggestions!



BTW: Is this the source-code?

Hi Sven,

I think this documentation should help:

Any chance/idea where to change something to be able to change the properties in "view mode" of a page?

I believe that is the source, and should hopefully provide some clues to getting your extra buttons working. There was a tutorial around somewhere, but I'm unable to find it any more unfortunately...
