JSF uses colon (':') symbol as a separator char in client id. So, you can:
1) Use rich:jQuery component
2) Use rich:clientId(...) function and escape colons via slash
3) Use rich-* CSS classes that comes with all RF components
ok, thanks for the reply... The only thing I don't understand is the need to do it like that. i need to use a simple statements that can be used with CSS,. Why would I want to write more code and use jQuery or rich components to slow more our web app?
the render code should be HTML compatible
(and don't care how many peple say it ain't a problem)... it's just poor compatibility...
it's like writing spaguetti code in OOP ( you just going to say.. why in the heck you did that? ). it's the same with web html/css standards
I might have to write more code... when i can simplie use: my old fashion CSS ID
to achive the same thing have to do it with jQuery and like 3 more lines of code...
but thanks for the reply.
(yap anyone can reply and defend the spaguetti code if they want.. after this post i made)...
