Subject RE: f:attribute in phaselistener
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2007 21:13:56 GMT

Alright, I looked at the source and it is creating a value binding for
But in my phaselistener I call the getValue(facesContext) on the value
binding it returns null.

Any solutions?

There was a change to f:attribute in 1.1.5; before then it would 
evaluate its expression on first view and store the result on the target

component. From 1.1.5 it stores the EL-expression on the target 
component and evaluates it each time.

However the attribute should still be present. Maybe it is there but 
evaluating to null at the time you make the call?

Try component.getAttributes().containsKey("fieldRef") to see if the 
entry is there..
