    Dynamically passing bean to rich:popupPanel

    Nikhil Patil Newbie

      I have a base class, which is normal Java class. Three subclasses extend it which are @ViewScopedbeans. There's a facelet using a dynamic variable. I have three xhtml pages which use this facelets with the three beans viz. bean1, bean2 and bean3 which are dynamically included in arich:tab component on a main page. So far so good. But on every page there are a few popups which should refer to the current bean. And since those popups need form tag inside them, I have included them outside the main page's form tags in order to avoid nested form tags. Now I want the popup to refer to current bean (bean1, bean2 or bean3, depending upon from where the popup is called) in question. How do I achieve this?

          Hi Nikhil,

          define a own variable Name for the interchangeable Bean. Then, when you step on your page you set the current bean to your generic variable.


          e.g. public void showPopupFromBean1()


               Bean1 bean1 = getBean1();

               FacesContext.getExternalContext().getSessionMap().put("currentBean", bean1);



          Best regards,

            if you want to make your pop up common, attach it to a separate bean then send the current bean to the pop up bean :

            <a4j:commandButton value="show"


                                                                         oncomplete="#{rich:component('popupID')}.show();return false;">                                                                         

                                                       <f:setPropertyActionListener value="#{user.currentBean}" target="#{user.popupBean}" />                                                        


                              <rich:popupPanel id="popupID"


                                        <h:outputText value="#{user.popupBean.value}" />

                                        <h:commandButton value="close"

                                                                                 onclick="#{rich:component('popupID')}.hide();return false;"/>
