hey guys, I got a macro component like this

    <div id="aContainer"></div>

then I just use the macro

<?component name="mymacro" macroURI="/macros/mymacro.zul" class="a.b.c.MyMacro"?>

  <template name="model" var="myvar">
    <label value="${myvar.name}"/>

the question is , how can I get the template in "a.b.c.MyMacro", when I call getTemplateNames() or getParent().getTemplateNames(), they all returned an empty array. Need yall help, thanks.

John, Can you explain what you are trying to achieve? You can pass an object to the macro also, in other words having the label in your macro.

I just want to customize the macro's content, consider the macro is a common page.The content decided by the template.

If you don't use CE (for the @ref), you maybe have it simpler with the apply tag?

hmm when I do what you describe I get the list of template names:

import org.zkoss.zk.ui.HtmlMacroComponent;
public class MyMacro extends HtmlMacroComponent {
    public void compose() {

Does this work on your side? did you try something different?
