As jQuery is so popular, richfaces in version 4.x move to it and it has problems with ":" in ids we need both JS function and some java utility method to escape clientIds. Are there any?
It would be probably best if both JS function exist and richfaces' version of jQuery accepted ":" in id selectors.
Thank you for suggestion, I've created https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/RF-8625 for this.
Currently we use the following code:
however it can be useful to be able to locate element by ID in some local context, so we'll add these functions.
