Is it possible to add dynamically a @DependsOn annotation to a method? By reflection or some ZK method?

The reason is: my object will only know @DependsOn object name on runtime.

Thanks in advance.

That's quite a rare question and I haven't tested this yet. Here's where I'd put a breakpoint to see how ZK does it internally when it encounters the annotation:


I assume the 3 String based parameters will be straight forward. Except for the first parameter Binding srcBinding. You'll need to find it inside the current Binder instance:

e.g. in your @Init-method of your ViewModel:

public void init(@ContextParam(ContextType.BINDER BinderCtrl binderCtrl) {

see: https://github.com/zkoss/zk/blob/v8.5.1.2/zkbind/src/org/zkoss/bind/sys/BinderCtrl.java#L171

As said I haven't tested this, nor do I exactly know that's what you want. However I'd start looking/testing there.
