Hi,

I have added new  dropdown field to my xhtml using JSF and primefaces.

I have requirement that it should populate default value of 1000 coming from collection object Map of one other form (mxxCppForm.java) when i come to that page in the Add scenario for the first time.

In the update scenario since i have the value i do not need to set default value but display the added value which I added in the last sentence. How to achieve this


My code is mxxCppAdd.xhtml

   <h:panelGrid>
                        <p:outputLabel for="mxxCpp" value="Mxx Cpp" />
                        <p:selectOneMenu id="mxxCpp"
                            value="#{mxxCppForm.mxxCppCompany.mxxCpppercentage}"
                            styleClass="newVarClass" value="1000">
                            <f:selectItems value="#{mxxCppForm.mxxCppListItems}" />
                        </p:selectOneMenu>

                    </h:panelGrid>

Open in new window



i tried giving like value="1000" and got error
javax.faces.view.facelets.FaceletException: Error Parsing
mxxCppAdd.xhtml
Error Traced[line: 3333] Attribute "value" was already specified for element  </p:selectOneMenu>


Do i supposed to give hard code value like
 value="1000"

or
get from collection object Map within mxxCppForm.java . If i need to get from Map in mxxCppForm.java how to get it?

My list looks like this in the mxxCppForm.java


      private static Map<String, String> mxxCppListItems;
      static {
            mxxCppListItems = new LinkedHashMap<String, String>();
            mxxCppListItems.put("1000", "1000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("2000", "2000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("3000", "3000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("4000", "4000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("5000", "5000");
            
            

      };


public Map<String, String> getMxxCppListItems() { return mxxCppListItems; }

please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Try with a List instead of a Map.

how list would be different from map in this case. How to use list. You mean array list. Please advise.

Yes I mean an array list. Define your mxxCppListItems as list
List<String> mxxCppListItems  = null;
...
....
mxxCppListItems = new AttayList<String>(5);
            mxxCppListItems.add("1000");
            mxxCppListItems.add("2000");
            mxxCppListItems.add("3000");
            mxxCppListItems.add("4000");
            mxxCppListItems.add("5000");

private static Map<String, String> mxxCppListItems;
      static {
            mxxCppListItems = new LinkedHashMap<String, String>();
            mxxCppListItems.put("1000", "1000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("2000", "2000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("3000", "3000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("4000", "4000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("5000", "5000");
           
           

      };

What is the meaning of above code i saw in my project.

Why they used map inside other map and then there is static block. It is not clear to me. Please advise with any good link, example

They just initialise the map in a static block of code.

I observed whichever i define at the top

mxxCppListItems.put("2000", "2000");
mxxCppListItems.put("1000", "1000");
mxxCppListItems.put("3000", "3000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("4000", "4000");
            mxxCppListItems.put("5000", "5000");

that is coming as default value in that order. Is it is good fix?
Please advise
