    Dynamic tabPanel tabs issue / feature request

    raffaele camanzo Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm trying to create a tabPanel where the tabs are inserted / removed dynamically;
      I tried to achieve this through xhtml in these ways:

      solution one:
      
      <rich:tabPanel>
       <ui:repeat value="#{mycomponent.tabdatalist}" var="tabdata">
       <rich:tab label="#{tabdata.label}">
       <ui:insert name="tabcontent"/>
       </rich:tab>
       </ui:repeat>
      </rich:tabPanel>
      
      
      solution two:
      
      <rich:tabPanel>
       <a4j:repeat value="#{mycomponent.tabdatalist}" var="tabdata">
       <rich:tab label="#{tabdata.label}">
       <ui:insert name="tabcontent"/>
       </rich:tab>
       </a4j:repeat>
      </rich:tabPanel>
      


      - solution one fails saying no selected tab present (I think there's a problem of creation / evaluation sequence.. it seems it does not fill the tabPanel at all);
      - solution two fails saying that the parent of the tab is not the tabPanel but the a4j:repeat element.

      I'm not creating the tabPanel programmatically because of the ui:insert tag (it seems there's no api to do this programmatically) and because I find this practice a little bit boring and confusing (but this is a problem of mine).

      So, the suggestion (the best solution for me.. but if you have another one is ok):

      <rich:tabPanel value="#{mycomponent.tabdatalist}" var="tabdata">
       <rich:tab label="#{tabdata.label}">
       <ui:insert name="tabcontent"/>
       </rich:tab>
      </rich:tabPanel>
      


      As always...
      Thank you,
      Regards,
