    UITree walk does not pass

    Paul Pantages Novice

      Hello Forum,

      I am using:
      Seam 2.0.1.GA
      Richfaces 3.1.4.GA

      I am trying to use UITree.walk() with DataVistitor to expand a tree
      from a selected root, when the operator clicks a context menu.

      Everything seems to work as expected except that
      the argument parameter (second parm) is always null when my process() method is called.

      I am trying to pass the UITree as the "argument" so that I can call
      tree.queueNodeExpand( treeRowKey ) for each of the nodes.

      The first parm is always properly set to an instance of treeRowKey, but
      the second parm ("argument") is alwya null.

      Am I missing something obvious?

      Any hints will be greatly appreciated...

      ( I can resort to setting the UITree in my Expander instance,
      so this is not a show stopper at this point... )

      Thanks, PdP
