Tomahawk commandButton tag

    

This tag renders an HTML submit button. You can perform any operations at particular event by associating actionListener class for event handling. You can associate the component with the method of the backing bean which can return any static value that can be used to decide the next page to render. If you set the type attribute to reset then clicking the button will reset all the components in the form.

This tag contains attributes given below :

  • id : This is the value which is used to uniquely identify the component within the closest container like form or subview. The main thing to remember is that its value must be a static value.
  • binding : This attribute is used to specify the property of the backing bean with which this component instance is to be bound.
  • rendered : Its default value is true. If  this attribute is set to true then this component is presented in the page to the user. If false, then this component is not rendered.
  • immediate : This attribute is a boolean attribute that is used to identify the phase during which the value change event should be fired. In normal processing of the event, if immediate attribute is not set to true, the value change event is fired during the invoke application phase but if immediate attribute is set to true then the event is fired at the end of apply request value phase.
  • action : This attribute takes method binding EL expression that specifies which backing bean method is to be invoked when the user submits the form. The outcome of the method calling decides next page to display. This attribute can also take static value that is used to decide the next page to display.
  • actionFor : The actionFor attribute takes a comma-separated list of subForm IDs for which validation and modal update should take place when this command is executed.
  • actionListener : The actionListener attribute of the commandButton tag is used to assign an action listener method from backing bean that performs the specific operation.
  • value : The initial value of the component is set to this attribute.
  • dir : It is used to set the direction of the text to be displayed. It can take two values LTR(left to right) and RTL (right to left). 
  • lang : It is used to set the base language of the component when displayed.
  • style : It is used to set the CSS style definition for the component.
  • title : It is the standard html attribute. It is used to set the tooltip text for this component.
  • styleClass : It is used to set the CSS class for the component. It is same as html class attribute.
  • onclick : Script to be invoked when the element is clicked. 
  • ondblclick : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the element is double-clicked. 
  • onmousedown : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the pointing device is pressed over this element. 
  • onmouseup : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the pointing device is released over this element. 
  • onmouseover : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the pointing device is moved into this element. 
  • onmousemove : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the pointing device is moved while it is in this element. 
  • onmouseout : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when the pointing device is moved out of this element. 
  • onkeypress : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when a key is pressed over this element. 
  • onkeydown : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when a key is pressed down over this element.
  • onkeyup : It is used for Java Script code to be invoked when a key is released over this element. 
  • accesskey : This is standard html attribute. It is used to set the access key for the element which is used to send the focus to the element when pressed. 
  • alt : This is used as an alternate text that is displayed when browser is not able to display the element.
  • disabled : Its a boolean attribute. This is used to disable the element to receive focus, when it is set to true. 
  • onblur : This attribute sets JavaScript code to execute when the component loses the focus.
  • onfocus : This attribute sets JavaScript code to execute when the component receives the focus.
  • onchange : This attribute sets JavaScript code to execute when the element is modified.
  • onselect : This attribute sets JavaScript code to execute when the element is selected.
  • tabindex : This is a standard html attribute. It is used to set the order of receiving the focus on the movement of TAB key by the user. 
  • type : This attribute tells the component type whether it is submit type or reset etc.
  • size : It is used to set  the width (in character) of the component.
  • image :This attribute takes a relative or absolute url of the image that has to be displayed on the component.
  • enabledOnUserRole : If the current user has one of the roles listed in the enabledOnUserRole attribute then enabling or disabling of the component is decided on the base of "disabled" attribute. If disabled attribute is set to true then component is disabled otherwise enabled. If the user is not in the above list then the component is rendered disabled.
  • visibleOnUserRole : If the current user has one of the roles listed in the visibleOnUserRole attribute then processing of the component is decided on the base of "rendered" attribute. If the rendered attribute is set to true then component is not rendered otherwise displayed  on the page. On the other hand if the current user is not in the above list then the component is not processed.
  • forceId : This is a boolean attribute with default value false. If this attribute is set to true, the tag is forced to render the id for the component exactly as mentioned in the id attribute of the tag. The benefit of this attribute is that we can reference component by id in the javascript. If we don't use this attribute with the true value then the id for the component is presented in different format.
  • forceIdIndex : This is a boolean attribute with default value true. If this value is true then the the component displays the index number in its id value if the component is in a list. If this attribute is set to false then this component will not append index number as suffix . If forcrId is set to false then its value is ignored.
