    RichFaces CDK custom button component

    Jesper Thorhauge Newbie

      Hi

      I am trying to create my own custom RichFaces component using the RichFaces CDK. I want to create a custom commandButton which utilizes the button html tag (Oracle ADF has a similar component). It allows for nicer looking buttons (ex. http://particletree.com/features/rediscovering-the-button-element/).

      My problem is that when my a4j page is reRendered it closes my button-tag and content inside the button is then rendered useless. Ex.;

      <button ...><img src=""/></button>


      Becomes

      <button .../><img src=""/>


      My .jspx template is;

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <f:root
       xmlns:f="http://ajax4jsf.org/cdk/template"
       xmlns:c=" http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"
       xmlns:ui=" http://ajax4jsf.org/cdk/ui"
       xmlns:u=" http://ajax4jsf.org/cdk/u"
       xmlns:x=" http://ajax4jsf.org/cdk/x"
       class="com.conzentrate.renderkit.html.CommandButtonRenderer"
       baseclass="org.ajax4jsf.renderkit.AjaxCommandRendererBase"
       component="com.conzentrate.component.UICommandButton"
       >
       <f:clientid var="clientId"/>
       <button id="#{clientId}"
       name="#{clientId}"
       value="#{this:getValue(component)}"
       class="#{component.attributes['styleClass']}"
       style="cursor:pointer;padding:0px;margin:0px;width:auto;overflow:visible;"
       onclick="#{this:getOnClick(context,component)}"
       x:passThruWithExclusions="name,onclick,type,id,class">
      
       <table id="#{clientId}:table" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="padding:0px 2px 0px 2px;">
       <tr id="#{clientId}:tr">
       <td id="#{clientId}:td_img"><img id="#{clientId}:img" src="#{context.externalContext.requestContextPath}/core/iconsets/silk/#{component.attributes['icon']}.png" class="#{component.attributes['iconClass']}" style="#{component.attributes['iconStyle']};cursor:pointer;padding-right:2px;"/></td>
       <td id="#{clientId}:td_value" style="cursor:pointer;">#{component.attributes['value']}</td>
       </tr>
       </table>
      
       </button>
      </f:root>


      my .xml config is;

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <!DOCTYPE components PUBLIC "-//AJAX4JSF//CDK Generator config/EN" "http://labs.jboss.com/jbossrichfaces/component-config.dtd">

       <!--

       <description>The icon for the component</description>
       </property>
       </component>
      </components>


      My UICommandButton extends AjaxActionComponent and CommandButtonRendererBase extends AjaxCommandRendererBase. No methods are overridden in any of the classes.

      I am a beginner in JSF/RichFaces :-). Hope that someone can help me.

      /Jesper
