Hi!

I'm creating a portlet similar to the Category Navigator from scratch.
My portlet has a list of links that change depending on the page that the user is visiting.

In the Category Navigator when you click on a link it displays all the contents of the selected category. Is there a way of getting the Category Navigator's links URLs programatically?

For example, I have a category called "Category1", so in the Category Navigator portlet I have a link named "Category1" that points to the URL:

http://localhost:8080/web/guest/home?p_p_id=122_INSTANCE_9LsGFjuPpDxt&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&p_p_col_id=column-2&p_p_col_count=5&p_r_p_564233524_resetCur=true&p_r_p_564233524_categoryId=16815

Is there a way of creating this URL knowing the CategoryId programatically?

Thanks in advance! emoticon

Isn't it just a standard portletURL (typically a renderURL) with various paramaters set (resetCur and categoryId in particular.

look in the taglib ui code for how standard navigation is handled.
