Interface IComponentAssignedModel<T>

Type Parameters:
T - The model data type
All Superinterfaces:
IClusterable, IDetachable, IModel<T>, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
ComponentDetachableModel, ComponentModel, ComponentPropertyModel, ResourceModel, StringResourceModel

public interface IComponentAssignedModel<T> extends IModel<T>
Models that wish to substitute themselves with a wrapper when they are bound to a component (either through IModel parameter in a constructor or via a call to Component.setDefaultModel(IModel)) should implement this interface. One reason for a model to want to do this is if it needs to be aware of the component it is bound to. The algorithm wicket employs is similar to this:
 void Component.setModel(IModel model) 
     if (model instanceof IComponentAssignedModel) 
        this.model = ((IComponentAssignedModel)model).wrapOnAssignment(this);
        this.model = model;
For an example see ResourceModel

  • Method Details

    • wrapOnAssignment

      This method is called when the component gets its model assigned. WARNING: Because the model can be assigned in the constructor of component this method can also be called with a 'this' of a component that is not fully constructed yet.
