I was trying to display a different page in my portlet depending on the window state. If the window state is normal, I want to display view.xhtml, if the window state is maximized, I want to display maximized.xhtml.
I am using the JSR-301 PortletBridge with RF 3.1.3 on JBP 2.6.3. So I thought of a quick hack: I override GenericFacesPortlet's getDefaultViewId() method and, depending on the window state, return a different id:
If I maximize my portlet, the method is called twice. The first time, it returns my viewId as expected. The second time, however, it returns the normal viewId. So I end up with the default behavior, it just displays the defaultViewId.view instead of my defaultViewId.view.maximized.
That leads me to my final question: Why doesn't it work? :)
I understand that it is called twice because a change of the window state is only allowed in an actionRequest. But why doesn't the renderRequest know about the window state anymore?
