    [JSF] <s:decorate> and <h:panelGrid> conflict

    Jacek Zebrowski Newbie

      I got question regarding <s:decorate>
      Normally i design my forms in such manner :

      <h:panelGrid columns="2">
      <h:outputText>Login</h:outputText>
      <h:inputText value="#{newUser.login}"/>
      </h:panelGrid>

      Wich gets Me the layout i want

      But when using <s:decorate> im forced to do like so :
      <h:panelGrid columns="2">
      <s:decorate template="../misc/error_facelet.xhtml">
      <ui:define name="label">Nazwisko</ui:define>
      <h:inputText value="#{newUser.lastName}"/>
      </s:decorate>
      </h:panelGrid>


      The Problem with above design is that everything in <s:decorate> is inserted in one cell of a table.
      My error_facelet.xhtml is the file straight from docu :
      <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
       xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"
       xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"
       xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"
       xmlns:s="http://jboss.com/products/seam/taglib">
       <div>
       <s:label styleClass="#{invalid?'error':''}">
       <ui:insert name="label"/>
       <s:span styleClass="required" rendered="#{required}">*</s:span>
       </s:label>
       <span class="#{invalid?'error':''}">
       <s:validateAll>
       <ui:insert/>
       </s:validateAll>
       </span>
       <s:message styleClass="error"/>
       </div>
      </ui:composition>


      One Thing is the div element wich i should not use (ill erease it and check it out) but my question is :

      is <s:decorate> threated as a container (component wise) are all contents of it threated as one element or it just pastes the template without interfering ?
      the effect id like to achieve is to have label in one cell - field in the other and do not use separate panelGrid in the template (so i wont generate 2 cell tabel for each field) is it possible ?
