A stack of panels, to switch panels dynamically. Manage a stack of JSF components and allow for one child component to be choosen for rendering. The behaviour is similar to the CardLayout of Java Swing. Property selectedPanel defines the id of the child to be rendered. If no child panel is selected or if the selected panel can not be found the first child is rendered. Unless otherwise specified, all attributes accept static values or EL expressions.


<t:panelStack id="String"


see examples/panelStack.jsp for an example!
