    • Method Detail

      • create

        Component[] create​(Component parent,
                           Component insertBefore,
                           VariableResolver resolver,
                           Composer composer)
        Creates the components defined in this template.
        parent - the parent to assign the new component to. Unlike Execution.createComponents(PageDefinition, Component, Map) (but similar to Execution.createComponents(PageDefinition, Map)), if parent is null or the parent does not belong to any page, the created components won't be attached to any page too.
        insertBefore - the component that the new components shall be inserted before. If null, the new components will be appended. If insertBefore.getParent() is not the same as parent, it is ignored.
        resolver - the addition variable resolver used to render the template. Ignored if null.
        composer - the addition composer used to control the lifecycle. Ignored if null.
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if parent is null
      • getParameters

        java.util.Map<java.lang.String,​java.lang.Object> getParameters()
        Returns a readonly map of the parameters that are assigned to the template.

        Notice that if a parameter's value contains EL expression, it will be evaluated when this object is instantiated and assigned to a component (by use of Component.setTemplate(java.lang.String, org.zkoss.zk.ui.util.Template)).
