Subject Tiles: nesting one template inside another?
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 12:18:19 GMT
I have a generic company layout mainly composed of the menu navigations
I have also a 'Search' type form. The search form will be used in various
different tiles because it is relevant to View, Edit, Update, Save etc
What I want to do is kind of nest the Search Form layout inside the generic
company layout so that in my tiles definitions file I keep the generic
company part and still inject other tiles into the Form part.
I have a generic layout A :
<title><tiles:getAsString name="title" /></title>
<tiles:insert attribute="content" />
<script language="JavaScript">buildMenus();</script>
All pages will use this layout.
But I also have a Search form that will be used in many pages: view, edit,
save etc.
The form consists of many common elements and will change only slightly
according to context. At the moment I have implemented this using a separate
layout manager which is a cut and paste of layout A but with other tiles
<title><tiles:getAsString name="title" /></title>
<tiles:insert attribute="xx" />
<tiles:insert attribute="yy" />
<script language="JavaScript">buildMenus();</script>
But it seems that I should be able to define a the form as a layout and use
the generic layout as a starting point and inject the tiles into the form
Am I just missing something obvious in the documentation? Or has anyone done
something similar?
Many thanks
