    Problem using Richfaces styles

    ujjets Newbie



      I am using Richfaces 3.3.1,Seam 2.2.0 ,JSF 1.2.


      I am trying to apply a rich faces style to a div :


      <div style="width: 200px;" class="rich-combobox-font rich-combobox-shell">


      This class is in:




      But the file is not loaded.I cannot see the file in the html output.


      I am able to see other files like :


      <link class="component" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="/XXX/a4j/s/3_3_1.GAcss/simpleTogglePanel.xcss/DATB/eAE7ff3HutDlM6QBGgsE-A__.seam">


      but not the combobox.xcss.

      It works fine if I manually load the file.

      Not sure what I am missing.

      Any help appreciated.

          I think RichFaces only load files required on each page. Meaning that if you don't use a comboBox component, the comboBox CSS file will not be loaded. Try to add a comboBox, just for test, and see if it add the CSS file. At least, it's the case in last version of RichFaces, not sure about 3.3.1

            Hello Paul,


            Many thanks for your response.

            I tried adding a dummy combo box and voilà !!!

            The styles were being applied.

            I really do not need that component, but looks like I need that hack for the page to work unless there are any other suggestions.

            Thanks again.

              You're welcome


              I think adding the CSS file of the combo box manually is a better solution than having a dummy combo box in your page (even if you don't display it). What you really need is only the CSS file, and adding a combo box will probably include other files (like javascript scripts) that you don't need (and you will have a ugly HTML source code with a useless combo box ^^).


              You can load the CSS file on a template if you need the CSS class a lot or only on this particular page.

                OK Paul.

                Will probably go with adding the styles manually.

                Appreciate your taking the time.
