    Panel Menu with dyanmic  expanded problem

    jsf geeks Master

      In my project i use Panel Menu for different topic listing of different category. for dyanmic panel menu group & panel menu item i am using C:for Each & c:if tag. like below

       <c:if test="${contentlist.current_subject==1}">
       <rich:panelMenu selectedChild="#{contentlist.current}"
       style="width:250px;height:600px" expandMode="ajax" mode="ajax" expandSingle="true" id="pnlmenu_phy"
       iconExpandedGroup="disc" iconCollapsedGroup="disc" topItemStyle="color:red;"
       iconExpandedTopGroup="chevronUp" iconGroupTopPosition="right"
       <c:forEach items="#{contentlist.selectItems_std}" var="std1">
       <rich:panelMenuGroup value="#{listState.lststate}" expanded="true" actionListener="#{listState.select}" id="pnlmenugrp_phystd" style="background-color:red" label="#{std1.label}" >
       <h:outputText value="#{listState.lststate}"/>
       <c:forEach items="#{contentlist.selectItems_chap}" var="chap1">
       <c:if test="${chap1.description==std1.value}">
       <rich:panelMenuItem name="#{chap1.value}"
       id="pnlmenuitm_phychap" mode="ajax" ignoreDupResponses="true" ajaxSingle="true" action="#{contentlist.chapterlist_action}" label="#{chap1.label}" >
       <a4j:support id="ajxsprt_phychap" event="onclick" reRender="datagridtopic"></a4j:support >
       <rich:dragSupport id="drgsprt_phychap" dragIndicator=":drgindic"
       dragType="value" dragValue="#{chap1.value}">
       <rich:dndParam id="dndprm_phychap" name="label" value="#{chap1.label}" />
       <f:param id="fprm_phychap" name="current" value="#{chap1.value}"/>

      Everything is working fine.
      now my problem is i am using datagrid which is get rendered as user clicks on panel meu items & there are links on datagrid rows.
      when user clicks on that links & come back to this page i want to maintain state of Panelmenu & panel menu group.
      suppose i have selected Group2 >item4 then when back from redirect it gets selected & expanded.

          you could download sources of richfaces-demo and check how that achieved for left main menu.

            thnaks a lot for your reply,

            can you plz tell where i will get this demo for download.
            and i think they might be using Panel bar not Panel menu and have one solution i got it from Max kartz blog but it's for static menu. he is passing Id of panel menu group in value expression of menugroup like


            where 'group1' is id of menugroup & this functions maintains the state of menugroups. but i am using c:foreach to iterate for different menugroup & menuitems & even i can not use dynamic id of menu group item like

            it gives me el expression error.
            i am really stucked at this error and i am tryind to solve it from last 2 days.
            any help will be appreciated.
