8 days and no answer, I tried to do this, but I do not know enough about RichFaces internals... So, I asked for it as a feature request: RF-4128.
I only hope someone with the required knowledge finds a time to implements this.
Today RF-4128 was rejected with the comment:
"Solution exist using c:forEach or bindingd. "
But I didnt ask for an alternative way of solving this problem, I asked for integration Panel Menu, Context Menu, Drop Down Menu... why was that rejected?
In ASP.NET all the controls that can deal with hierarchical information can bind to a HierarchicalDataSourceControl ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.hierarchicaldatasourcecontrol.aspx ), and therefore a consitent programming model can be used to deal with all of them... if " c:forEach or bindingd" were alredy good enought... then...
why did you recursiveTreeNodesAdaptor in the first place? Is it really such a bad idea to ask for an unified way to deal with Hierarchical data controls?
I've reopened the issue.
Thanks a lot! :-D.
So... do you think we could have some kind of hierarchicalDataAdaptor that works for Tree, Panel Menu, Context Menu, Drop Down Menu in the not so distant future?
