EB> R1 something you can stick in your page, that will evaluate to the full,
EB> absolute, clientId of the named thing when the page is rendered. Like
EB> this:

AVK> <h:button id="button1"
AVK> onclick="button_setEnabled(button2,
AVK> false);button_clicked(button1);return"
AVK> ... />
AVK> <h:button id="button2" ... " />

AVK> then I want the result of the first one to be

AVK> <input type="submit" id="myform:button1"
AVK> onclick="button_setEnabled('myform:button2', false);
AVK> button_clicked('myform:button1'); return;"
AVK> ... />

EB> R2 This thing can be presenent in an attribute value, or as template
EB> text.

AVK> Definitely needed in an attribute value, for the method invocation. I
AVK> don't know whether it is necessary in tempate text. I have a feeling
AVK> some JavaScript interpreters barf if you mention the id before the
AVK> element is present.

EB> R3 This thing must only work within the scope of a naming
EB> container. In other words, I can't use this mechanism to refer
EB> to something in form B if I'm inside Form A.

EB> R4 This thing must work in a multi-include page scenario

EB> R5 This thing must work in a portlet scenario

Change summary

Comment by Ed Burns [ 06/Nov/08 ]

Given the #


and #


implicit objects, and the ability to use them on the
server side, in XHTML, and in resources, having the ability to say #


would be nice. To
do this, we need to add to UIComponent, String getClientId(). This just does
FacesContext.getCurrentInstance() and calls the other getClientId().

Push out to 2.1

Prepare to delete "spec" subcomponent.

Comment by Ed Burns [ 14/Dec/09 ]

Move these to unscheduled because we need to target them correctly. 2.next isn't
specific enough.

Set priority to baseline ahead of JSF 2.3 triage. Priorities will be assigned accurately after this exercise.

Setting to Critical, verify if it is already done or not.
