This forum is for design of RichFaces discussions, can you please post this question in the RichFaces User forum?
Can you move it for me?
Since it involves working with the internals, I wasn't sure that it was a "user" question.
Sure - I'll move it now, and I think this is a valid user question :-)
Here is the template source file for tree node renderer: http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/richfaces/tags/3.3.1.GA/ui/tree/src/main/templates/htmlTreeNode.jspx.
When the project is built, this file is compiled into org.richfaces.renderkit.html.TreeNodeRenderer class (more information on how ComponentDevelopmentKit works, can be found here: http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossrichfaces/freezone/docs/cdkguide/en/html_single/index.html)
That explains it. Looking for code when it was templated. A command-line scan was only looking at Java files and I missed the templates in the IDE resource view.
