ZUML Attributes, @NotifyChange

In my viewmodel there is a collection of parent objects and for each parent there is a collection of children. I have a filter method which looks for parents by some child property e.g. name and my method has the @NotifyChange("parents") annotation. The Java code works fine, my collection is updated but not my zul. I'm using forEach directive to iterate parents and children just like that:

<div class="column" forEach="${vm.parents}">
      <div class="card">
        <div class="card-header">      
         <a sclass="navbar-item">
           <vlayout sclass="icon has-text-warning">
             <vlayout sclass="far fa-edit"></vlayout>
            <label sclass="card-header-title" value="${each.name}" />
        <div class="card-content">
          <div class="columns is-multiline">
            <div class="column is-one-quarter" forEach="${each.children}">
              <label sclass="title is-6 is-mega-menu-title" style="padding-left: 1rem" value="${each.name}"/>
              <a sclass="navbar-item is-6" forEach="${each.children}" label="${each.name}" />

My guess is: this is happening because I'm not actually binding a collection like @load(vm.parents). When I try to do that with forEach directive, it doesn't work. Is there a way to do that with MVVM approach? Update a collection, and applying it inside forEach or similar.

${} is a static annotation, if you want notifyChange to work you need @load.
There is also the children attribute, in the article it's explained on how to use it with MVVM.

Thanks again, Chill! That's what I've been looking for! I'm trying to do the same children binding example from the page you sent, but using simple HTML, now it seems much better with template and children directives. I wasn't sure about ${} being used to handle some static piece of code. =D

No problem, we all have the same things to learn in the beginning
