So I need to have a way to carry over the Device data depending on which link the user clicks on. I have an idea how to do so but Im not there yet. Here is what i have been working on:
Now this is not working yet of course, particularly line 3 is underlined with this error:
Cannot cast from Component to Device
So Im not sure what needs to be changed here. Is (MouseEvent event) the correct thing to go in between the parentheses or does that need to be something else like (FacesContext event)?
If MouseEvent event will work, I'm sure all I need is some line to go before that third line that first casts event to something else that is then castable to Device.
When I did this in reference to my rich:tree I used:
This works for clicking on a tree node but I need something for clicking on a command Link

outputLink. so create a variable of type outputLink name it myOtputLink
and replcae line 3 with this
