Can I add custom controls into Confluence Addon PropertyPanel? Edited

Hi! I found the info about how to customize PropertyPanel with user buttons.

Unfortunatelly, the example shows only the basic staff - how to add a simple button and how to add event listener to it.

But I saw some pictures, where developers add buttons with images, and even another controls, such as checkboxes, text inputs and delimiters.

Does onpremise Confluence support this functionality?

Solve it.

The correct answer is:

  1. Register panel initialization through
    AJS.Confluence.PropertyPanel.Macro.registerInitHandler
  2.  Inside handler the first patameter would be macro placeholder, and teh second is buttons array. If you want to modify the existing button with custom HTML, you could just add 'html' property to one of the object, like this 
    buttons[1].html = '<input type="text" />';
    Or, you can even insert new buttons structure into array.
  3. If you want to bind event handlers to your custom controls, register window event handler to listen for created panel event.
    $(window).on('created.property-panel', function () {
    //work with DOM controls here
    });

Summary function code could look like this:

AJS.Confluence.PropertyPanel.Macro.registerInitHandler(function(macroPlaceholder, buttons) {
 //Make what you want with the buttons array. Add or set 'html' property to any custom html you want.
 buttons[1].html = '<input id="PropertyPanelCustomInput" type="text" />';
 $(window).once('created.property-panel', function () {
//Add any event handlers to you custom controls here
$('PropertyPanelCustomInput').on('change', function() {
//Yeah, great. Now I know how to do that!
});
});
}, 'myplugin');
