I tried to pass a form as parameter to a macro:

<?component name="mymacro" macroURI="mymacro.zul" inline="true"?>
<grid form="@id('fx') @load(vm) @save(vm), before='save'> 

  <mymacro pojo="${fx}" field="myValue"/> 
<button label="save" onClick="@command('save')" />
<button label="cancel" onClick="@command('cancel')" />

but I get "Target Unreachable, identifier 'pojo' resolved to null"

when I try to access this "passed form" in mymacro.zul:

  <row style="border: 1px solid red;">
    <custom-attributes pojo="${arg.pojo}" field="${arg.field}"/>
    Inside macro:
    <textbox value="@bind(pojo[field])"/>

I did some updating of Robert's previous example.


Like I said, not very clean code but it's possible.

I did now wire only the pojo object to the SimpleForm but you can update it so it contains every singel propertie of the Pojo object.


Well, you could use the form binding in the macro component.
The only thing what we need to know is when te save, so I've updated cor's example again with the update of your question.
I think it's the reaction what you wanted.

This does not really solve my problem, as the goal is to use a form as a container of several macros (here: macros to render rows within a grid) while using MVVM-style data binding (which cannot be passed directly as macro parameter).

The example http://zkfiddle.org/sample/6sleo1/3-macro-with-manual-reference shows how to make this data binding happen for the ViewMode (vm), but not for a "form-model" (fx) inside the zul..

I'll try and search, but I have no good eye in it for the moment.

Klaus, can you edit your question to the final result. I espect you will also use model and template because you speak of multiple rows. Where you want to put the savebefore of the fx?

I extended the sample code in my question (did not check final syntax). No templates used.
