 Description  « Hide

Sometimes I find myself creating <h:panelGroup> or containers just to use the rendered attribute on some html markup. It would be quite amazing if I could annotate any html with the jsf:rendered attribute and have JSF create a component behind the scenes to encapsulate that markup. that way I could just do <div jsf:rendered="#{isLoggedIn}>...content...</div>. Maybe a component dedicated for that purpose could be created (just to hold the html markup that is), excuse me is this is already possible, but I often find myself wishing this feature were available.

I'm happy to report this just works with the HTML5 passthrough element support. Check this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns=""
    <div myNS:rendered="true">

<form myNS:id="form">
    <input name="textField" type="text" myNS:value="#{bean.text1}" />

    <input type="submit" myNS:id="submitButton" value="submit" />
    <p>submitted text: #{bean.text1}.</p>



The rhs of the rendered attribute can just as well be an EL expression.
