I wanted to extract the value of a <h:commandLink> so i can utilize the value as a parameters. Essentially i have a dynamic list that is being generated with <h:commandLink> around it. So whatever is being dynamically created (unique ids) they are a link to lead the user to the actual unique ids information. Unfortunately i am having problems displaying it, the work around i have come up with is extract that unique id when i click the link, and using as it a parameter to populate the information. Any suggestion as to a function built into <h:commandLink> that would allow me to extract the value (store in ArrayList of Managed Beans) Thank you.
