    best way to hightlight refreshed area

    Margot Media Newbie

      What is the best way to highlight the refreshed area?
      I can think about use of oncomplete attribute, but it's a little verbose.
      This is alsa a feature request: what about a way to describe the visual effect on target side instead of source side?

      Source side is something like that:

      <a4j:support reRender="area1" oncomplete="Effect.Appear('area1')"/>


      Target side would be instead (this is not possible now in RichFaces):

      <a4j:outputPanel id="area1" refreshEffect="Appear">
      Simple text
      </a4j:outpPanel>
      ...
      <aj4:support ... reRender="area1"/>


      I think the second option is usually better.

          Hi,

          Not a problem:

          <h:form id="form">
           <a4j:commandLink value="Update panel" reRender="box" />
          
           <rich:panel id="box">
           <h:outputText value="Text content" />
          
           <h:panelGroup rendered="#{ajaxContext.ajaxRequest}">
           <rich:effect type="Highlight" name="effectFunc" for="box" />
           <script type="text/javascript">
           effectFunc();
           </script>
           </h:panelGroup>
           </rich:panel>
          
           </h:form>
