Hi guys,

I am trying to use one of the PrimeFaces Extensions components (MasterDetail) and having problems getting the navigation to work after adding a 4th level (masterDetailLevel); Everything seems to work fine until I click on the 3rd level's pe:selectDetailLevel commandLink to go down to the 4th level.
Then the top navigation seem to break.

Just want to confirm; I should be able to use any number of levels right? :roll:

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

There are no limitations. We use MasterDetail with more than 10 levels. Please post you code here.

Hi Oleg,

Thank you for the quick reply. I was about to give up when I realized that all of the objects weren't Serializable ! Duh! This fixed the problem! :)

Hopefully this will help somebody in the future?

Btw. awesome component! So useful in our environment.

Glad to hear. I can not imagine my web apps without this component too. Especially for CRUD apps it is must to have and saves much development time.

I normally start design with defining views (= pages) and sections in views (= page pieces) by pe:masterDetail. Something like (example from one app).

Code: Select all

        <pe:masterDetail id="masterDetail" level="#{currentLevelData.currentLevel}">
            <f:facet name="header">
                <p:messages id="messages"/>
            </f:facet>

            <pe:masterDetailLevel level="1" levelLabel="Users">
                <ui:include src="/sections/users/search.xhtml"/>
            </pe:masterDetailLevel>

            <pe:masterDetailLevel level="2" levelLabel="Create User" rendered="#{currentLevelData.currentLevel == 2}">
                <ui:include src="/sections/users/create.xhtml"/>
            </pe:masterDetailLevel>

            <pe:masterDetailLevel level="3" rendered="#{currentLevelData.currentLevel == 3}">
                <ui:include src="/sections/users/edit.xhtml"/>
            </pe:masterDetailLevel>

            <pe:masterDetailLevel level="4" levelLabel="Membership" rendered="#{currentLevelData.currentLevel == 4}">
                <ui:include src="/sections/common/membership.xhtml">
                    <ui:param name="membershipBean" value="#{membershipUser}"/>
                </ui:include>
            </pe:masterDetailLevel>
        </pe:masterDetail>

Extraordinary! I will definitely use this idea of yours thank you Oleg and thank you for sharing it with us.
I am using the component for a specific drill down in objects, but like you demonstrate it can be very useful for simple CRUD requirements. Going to try this out and let you know.
