Access DOM element - Vaadin 7


is there any function to access the DOM tree from the server side without using any addons?

In particular, I’d like to get all child elements for a given


Thank you in advance!

If you wanna to obtain List childs you can probably create own vaadin widget and collect this data using GWT.

No, Vaadin does not include such functionality. The server does not care about individual DOM elements; they are just an implementation detail on the client side. Trying to duplicate the DOM tree on the server side would be practically impossible; an API for querying the client side from the server might be more feasible but would necessarily have to be asynchronous, and would also not be very useful without push enabled.

Could you tell us a bit more about your use case?
