[jboss-user] [JBoss Portal] - Re: Custom navigation region

I have been thinking about this concept.

Wouldn't it be a more elegant solution if I would use a custom regionRenderer, that renders a specific portlet if it finds a
property in a region?

But I don't know how to do this.

What I found, is that the

1. DivRegionRenderer iterates through RegionRendererContext.getWindows()
Of course this getWindows() function will not return a WindowRendererContext for the injected portlet since it is not configured via xml or the admin page.

2. For every WindowRendererContext it renders the window via RendererContext.render()

So I assume I need to create a WindowRendererContext for every injected portlet too and call the RendererContext.render() with them.

3. JBoss implements whis WindowRendererContext with the WindowContext class.
The constructor of this class is:
WindowContext(java.lang.String id, java.lang.String regionName, java.lang.String order, WindowResult result) 

- What is the id?
- regionname I can handle
- what is the order?

I think the above parameters can be easily created, but for the last parameter - WindowResult - I have no idea what to write.

The constructor of WindowResult is:
WindowResult(java.lang.String title, java.lang.String content, java.util.Map actions, java.util.Map windowProperties, java.util.List<org.w3c.dom.Element> headerContent, org.jboss.portal.WindowState windowState, org.jboss.portal.Mode mode)

Can anyone help me on this?
