I am trying to instantiate some custom components from backing bean at page load - for dynamic menu generation.
I have a method to generate that menu and this method is called from pages.xml action execute.
UIForm form1 = (UIForm)facesContext.getViewRoot().findComponent("selectMenu");form1.getChildren().add(cmdButton);
And at that moment form1 is null. I figured out that this action execute is called just before rendering, so it is obvious that's null.
Question is - where to put this method or if there is some other pattern for dynamic menu generation at page load?
tnx in advance,
