Tag passwordStrength

The passwordStrength component is needed by the web sites which ask the user to enter a powerful password for the purpose of the registration stuff.

The component enables its user to know the strength of the password while (he/she) types it before even submit the form to the server [please see the screenshots].

The component enables its user to define his custom security policy for his password in an easy manner.

The component also have 2 types of presenting the password strength. Till now the strength can be represented as text or progressbar.

showDetailsfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThis flag {true | false} determines whether to show the details (left characters). default is true
strengthIndicatorTypefalsefalsejava.lang.StringThis flag determines the indicator type. It can be {text or bar}. Default is text
preferredPasswordLengthfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe prefered length of the password
prefixTextfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe prefix of the component message
textStrengthDescriptionsfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe text strength descriptions
customSecurityExpressionfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThis string determines the expression of the custom security rule of the password

Note that the expression has the following format :


S (Number) N (Number) A (Number)

  • Where S stands for Symbols
  • Where N stands for Numbers
  • Where A stands for Alphabets


For example) A4N2S3A2 Means that the password will be as following :

  • 4 or more Alphabets followed by
  • 2 or more Numbers followed by
  • 3 or more Symbols followed by
  • 2 or more Alphabets


Note also that the useCustomSecurity should be set to true.

useCustomSecurityfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThis flag determines whether to user custom security rules instead of just depending on the password length. The default is false.
penaltyRatiofalsefalsejava.lang.StringThis attribute determines the penalty ratio that will decrease the password Strength if the custom security expression is not met. Note also that the useCustomSecurity should be set to true to apply this flag. Possible values from 0 to 100. Default value is 50.
alignfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies the horizontal alignment of this element. Deprecated in HTML 4.01.
maxlengthfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: The maximum number of characters allowed to be entered.
sizefalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: The initial width of this control, in characters.
stylefalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: CSS styling instructions.
styleClassfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe CSS class for this element. Corresponds to the HTML 'class' attribute.
altfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies alternative text that can be used by a browser that can't show this element.
tabindexfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies the position of this element within the tab order of the document.
onblurfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element loses focus.
onfocusfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element receives focus.
accesskeyfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Sets the access key for this element.
onclickfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the element is clicked.

onkeypressfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when a key is pressed over this element.
onkeyupfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when a key is released over this element.
onmousedownfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is pressed over this element.
onmousemovefalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moved while it is in this element.
onmouseoutfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moves out of this element.
onmouseoverfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is moved into this element.
onmouseupfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Script to be invoked when the pointing device is released over this element.
onchangefalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element is modified.
onselectfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: Specifies a script to be invoked when the element is selected.
dirfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: The direction of text display, either 'ltr' (left-to-right) or 'rtl' (right-to-left).
langfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: The base language of this document.
titlefalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: An advisory title for this element. Often used by the user agent as a tooltip.
disabledfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: When true, this element cannot receive focus.
readonlyfalsefalsejava.lang.StringHTML: When true, indicates that this component cannot be modified by the user. The element may receive focus unless it has also been disabled.
validatorfalsefalsejava.lang.StringA method binding EL expression, accepting FacesContext, UIComponent, and Object parameters, and returning void, that validates the component's local value.
valueChangeListenerfalsefalsejava.lang.StringA 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.
immediatefalsefalsejava.lang.StringA 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.
requiredfalsefalsejava.lang.StringA 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.
converterfalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe 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.
valuefalsefalsejava.lang.StringThe 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
idfalsefalsejava.lang.StringAn 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.

renderedfalsefalsejava.lang.StringA boolean value that indicates whether this component should be rendered. Default value: true.
bindingfalsefalsejava.lang.StringIdentifies a backing bean property (of type UIComponent or appropriate subclass) to bind to this component instance. This value must be an EL expression.

No Variables Defined.
