Hello ivy team, is it possible to "broadcast" a button click event to a parent window in jsf? We would like to create a toolbar (save, cancel, continue) in a seperate Dialog in order to reuse it later. The toolbar is a child dialog of the main window. If I click a button in the toolbar which is connected to an "Exit End", the main window will not be closed. What is the best way to fix this?

A JSF component can by design not close itself.

But its possible to pass a callback method from the parent logic into the child component. See HtmlDialogDemos/ComponentEventListenerDemo.ivp

Thank you for your quick reply. But the example code fires only the callback event. The logic from the child component should be executed first. Is that possible?

Yes this is possible. I modified the view a little bit so that it calls a logic event of the local component. And in a script step it's possible to evaluate the actionListener from the parent and call it. See the screenshot

re-fire event
