Attributes

Name Type Supports EL? Description
accesskey String Yes HTML: Sets the access key for this element.
alt String Yes HTML: Specifies alternative text that can be used by a browser that can't show this element.
binding String Only EL Identifies a backing bean property (of type UIComponent or appropriate subclass) to bind to this component instance. This value must be an EL expression.
converter javax.faces.convert.Converter Yes The value can either be a static value (ID) or an EL expression. When a static id is specified, an instance of the converter type registered with that id is used. When this is an EL expression, the result of evaluating the expression must be an object that implements the Converter interface.
dir String Yes HTML: The direction of text display, either 'ltr' (left-to-right) or 'rtl' (right-to-left).
disabled boolean Yes HTML: When true, this element cannot receive focus.
forceId boolean No Gets If true, this component will force the use of the specified id when rendering.
forceIdIndex boolean No Gets If false, this component will not append a '[n]' suffix (where 'n' is the row index) to components that are contained within a "list." This value will be true by default and the value will be ignored if the value of forceId is false (or not specified.)
id String Yes An identifier for this particular component instance within a component view.

The id must be unique within the scope of the tag's enclosing NamingContainer (eg h:form or f:subview). The id is not necessarily unique across all components in the current view

This value must be a static value, ie not change over the lifetime of a component. It cannot be defined via an EL expression; only a string is permitted.

imageLocation String Yes Gets An alternate location to find image resources. If no values is specified, images will be loaded from the resources directory using AddResource and ExtensionsFilter.
immediate boolean Yes A boolean value that identifies the phase during which value change events should fire. During normal event processing, value change events are fired during the "process validations" phase of request processing. If this attribute is set to "true", these methods are fired instead at the end of the "apply request values" phase.
javascriptLocation String Yes Gets An alternate location to find javascript resources. If no values is specified, javascript will be loaded from the resources directory using AddResource and ExtensionsFilter.
lang String Yes HTML: The base language of this document.
maxlength int Yes HTML: The maximum number of characters allowed to be entered.
onblur String Yes HTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element loses focus.
onchange String Yes HTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element is modified.
onclick String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the element is clicked.
ondblclick String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the element is double-clicked.
onfocus String Yes HTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element receives focus.
onkeydown String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when a key is pressed down over this element.
onkeypress String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when a key is pressed over this element.
onkeyup String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when a key is released over this element.
onmousedown String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is pressed over this element.
onmousemove String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moved while it is in this element.
onmouseout String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moves out of this element.
onmouseover String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moved into this element.
onmouseup String Yes HTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is released over this element.
onselect String Yes HTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element is selected.
readonly boolean Yes HTML: When true, indicates that this component cannot be modified by the user. The element may receive focus unless it has also been disabled.
rendered boolean Yes A boolean value that indicates whether this component should be rendered. Default value: true.
required boolean Yes A boolean value that indicates whether an input value is required. If this value is true, and no input value is provided, the error message javax.faces.component.UIInput.REQUIRED is posted.
size int Yes HTML: The initial width of this control, in characters.
style String Yes HTML: CSS styling instructions.
styleClass String Yes The CSS class for this element. Corresponds to the HTML 'class' attribute.
styleLocation String Yes Gets An alternate location to find stylesheet resources. If no values is specified, stylesheets will be loaded from the resources directory using AddResource and ExtensionsFilter.
tabindex String Yes HTML: Specifies the position of this element within the tab order of the document.
title String Yes HTML: An advisory title for this element. Often used by the user agent as a tooltip.
validator javax.faces.el.MethodBinding Only EL A method binding EL expression, accepting FacesContext, UIComponent, and Object parameters, and returning void, that validates the component's local value.
value Object Yes The initial value of this component. This value is generally set as a value-binding in the form #{myBean.myProperty}, where myProperty can be any data-type of Java (also user-defined data-types), if a converter for this data-type exists. Special cases: 1) f:selectItems - value needs to bind to a list (or an array) of javax.faces.model.SelectItem-instances 2) components implementing UISelectMany (e.g. h:selectManyCheckbox) - value needs to bind to a list (or an array) of values, where the values need to be of the same data-type as the choices of the associated f:selectItems-component 3) components implementing UIData (e.g. h:dataTable) - value needs to bind to a list (or an array) of values, which will be iterated over when the data-table is processed
valueChangeListener javax.faces.el.MethodBinding Only EL A method binding EL expression, accepting a ValueChangeEvent parameter and returning void. The specified method is invoked if this component is modified. The phase that this handler is fired in can be controlled via the immediate attribute.
