No CA for layout.
We are working on it. I hope that feature will be done for JBoss Tools 3.1.0M2
Yes, it's a bug, I will report it in jira.
Until we get proper code completion for they layout components you can take a look at Richfaces documentation about layout components
and if you are lazy and just want to see it try out the test files we used for verifying the functionallity (yes, they are intentional ugly visually but shows the layout mechanism ;)
Feedback welcome ;)
I've fixed rich:layout problem with source code ordering of rich:layoutPanels. So in the new release layout will work better. Now I'm working on panel's width to diplay layout as close to richfaces does as possible.
dmaliarevich, could you tell how the layout is done ?
Is it an approximation limited to specific layout logical names or are we using css info to render a precise layout or how ?
Now rich faces layput in VPE is an approximation limited to specific layout logical names together with css syles to layout panels. Previously it was done only with css styles but in this case the order of panel's adding was set aside. To manage it draft div elements are created for every panel in rich:layout template in advance, then according to certain panel presence it is put to appropriate div thus correct layout is saved. Draft divs are situated relatively each other using css styles. That's how it works for now. RichFaces themselves have the very close behavior, they do not use YUI css directly but compute their own logic based on YUI.
