I am creating composite component that must render a child composite component.

Although I am iterating over three children, as shown in this example,
the clientId and title attribute for each rendered child is blank.

resources/components/mui/tabs.xml

</p>
<li>#{child.attrs.title}</li>
<p>

resources/components/mui/tab.xml

</p>
<p>

/example.xhtml

How can I properly render the clientId and title in the forEach loop?

Well, either you change your templates, so each renders itself without manually iterating over children or you use UIComponent's getter for attributes.

Your first suggestion won't work in this example because the parent must render certain aspects of its children, and THEN let the children render themselves. That's why I am trying to query information about the children in the parent, but its coming up blank. In this example, it is the parent that renders each child's "title" attribute.

As for your second suggestion, I would like to know how to do that from within a forEach loop? Maybe its not possible.
