                                  <item name="child_b" xsi:type="array">
                                      <item name="sortOrder" xsi:type="string">1</item>
                                      <item name="component" xsi:type="string">Mageplaza_HelloWorld/js/view/customer/list</item>

                                      </item>
                                      <item name="displayArea" xsi:type="string">child_b</item>
                                  </item>
                              </item>
                          </item>
                      </item>
                  </argument>
              </arguments>
          </block>
      </referenceContainer>
  </body>
</page>

Step 2: Declare all children in the file list.html

You can declare all children in the file list.html at the same time with the following command:

<!– ko foreach: elems() –>

<!– ko template: getTemplate() –><!– /ko –>

<!– /ko –>

Or do for “child a” and “child b” separately as the following:

  • Declare the “child a” in the file list.html via the code snippet:
<div data-bind="scope: requestChild('child_a')">

  <!-- ko template: getTemplate() --><!-- /ko -->

</div>
  • Then, declare the “child b” via displayArea in the file list.html by the command below:
<!– ko foreach: getRegion(‘child_b’) –>
<!– ko template: getTemplate() –><!– /ko –>
<!– /ko –>
