Hi everybody,

we are exploring ZK-EE Shadow Elements feature. The used ZK EE Eval version is '8.0.1.FL.20151216-Eval'.

We test an example as described here: http://books.zkoss.org/zk-mvvm-book/8.0/syntax/if.html but it fails with:

Component definition not found: if in [LanguageDefinition: xul/html]

We get this for all shadow elements. zkmax seems loaded correctly, as we can also use other features like colorbox. But no success with the Shadow Elements.

What do we miss?

Thanks, Charles

Intresting, this lib is also available in the CE Repository. Any chance this makes it into ZK CE? It feels like a very basic feature that finally allows us to do easy iteration/templating/conditionals in MVVM. Its really sad it's not part of CE...

Imo that should be detailled a bit more in the different small talks pages talking about the shadow doms elements.

It's never talked about on the talk https://www.zkoss.org/wiki/SmallTalks/2015/February/ZK8Series:UITemplate_Injection Beside on the version listing ...
