Hi all

I get really bored. I tried to add an Action to a dynamic built HtmlPanelGrid. But the action method never gets called. Please help me!


<ice:form styleClass="defineCharacteristic" partialSubmit="false">
<ice:panelGrid binding="#{myBean.panel}"/>


private HtmlPanelGrid panelGrid;
private HtmlCommandButton button;

public void createPanel(){
panelGrid = new HtmlPanelGrid();
HtmlInputText input = new HtmlInputText();
button = new HtmlCommandButton();
button.setValue("Submit it!");
MethodBinding mb = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getApplication() .createMethodBinding("#{myBean.send}", new Class[0]);

public void send(){
**Method never called**

public void setPanel(HtmlPanelGrid _panelGrid){

public HtmlPanelGrid getPanel(){
return panelGrid;

Regards Andy

Call the createPanel() method in getPanel().
