    how to display static  text below a input text field in rich

    s burgula Newbie


      I have a input text field in my JSF form.

      <h:outputLabel value="Course No" for="courseNo" />
      <h:inputText id="courseNo" required="true"
      value="#{courseSearch.crsoffrForAddition.id.courseNo}" label="Course #">

      It is a text field. I would like to display a static text message to the user to enter the courseNo in the a specific format (ex: "Course number should be in the following format XX-XXX). How do I display the message right below the text field.

      When I put h:outputText it displaces the other fields in the page.

      When I surround it with h:panelGroup, and then put h:outputText, it does not show up.

      I just want that message to be shown below the text field when the page renders. It should be in a small font so that the user is aware how to enter the input.

      Please let me know if anyone is aware.
