I have a zul and VeiwModel to him whit button

<window title="title" border="normal" closable="true"
viewModel="@id('vm') @init('foo.myVM')"
apply="org.zkoss.bind.BindComposer" onClose="@command('close')"
      <button image="resources/images/delete.png"                                               
      onClick="@command('openDeleteWnd')" />

Button open new window .This code is in myVM

private Object objectToEdit;
public void openDeleteVehicleWnd(){
    Window win = null;
    win = (Window) Executions.createComponents("edit.zul", null,null);


and i whant new window to use same ViewModel because the changes I'll make there reflect on the "objectToEdit" that is in the current viewModel

this is button zul:

<window title="edit" border="normal" closable="true"
viewModel="@id('vm') @init('foo.myVM')"

    <label value="Text" />

    <textbox rows="10" cols="50" value="@bind(vm.objectToEdit.text)"/>
    <hbox width="100%" pack="center" height="100%">
        <button label="Save" />


I try to use viewModel="@id('vm') @init('foo.myVM')" and value="@bind(vm.objectToEdit.text) but throws a mistake because of viewModel="@id('vm') @init('foo.myVM')". How can I use two windows with a one ViewModel. Or how to solve the problem without creating a new one ViewModel.

Hi Radoslav,

your question goes in a very similar direction as a recent question passing-parameters-from-a-viewmodel-to-another-one.

The same technique can be used in your case, except you can just use @Command instead of @GlobalCommand. If you don't like the <include> component and rather keep your approach using createComponents that's also fine. You can simply pass the objectToEdit as a parameter:

win = (Window) Executions.createComponents("edit.zul", null, Collections.singletonMap("data", objectToEdit));

You can't use the same view model in 2 places, but you can use the objectToEdit in 2 separate viewModels (e.g. PersonListVM and PersonEditVM). The PersonListVM passes the objectToEdit to the PersonEditVM to perform the updates.

If that doesn't help please let me know.
