PrimeFaces Community member Peter Hendriks has created a great tool to build PrimeFaces from trunk source. With just one click, you can build the very latest PrimeFaces and download it as a jar. We also have plans to bring jenkins back but that's for future. http://www.case1.nl/pfnb/ Thank you Peter for taking the time to do this and share with the rest of the community!...

PrimeFaces 3.3 gets major menu component enhancements, most of the work is related to internal apis and refactoring. We've unified repetitive behaviors like tiered menus, overlay positioning by introducing client side inheritance. External changes are; - Tiered and Slide menu types have now their own components named tieredMenu and slideMenu. - Added autoDisplay mode to tiered menus, by default submenus are displayed with mouseover, setting autoDisplay mode to false requires a click. - Tiered Context Menus are now supported. - Overlay...

PrimeFaces AutoComplete is an ajax input suggest component that is far more advanced than other similar JSF components and JS widgets you can find in JS libraries. It supports single, multiple selection, ajax behaviors, custom content, pojo support and more. An Enterprise User of PrimeFaces required another sponsored feature to autocomplete; Displaying custom content as tooltip on mouseover of suggested items. After giving a though on how to do it, we came up with something like this; Content...

PrimeFaces InputTextarea extends standard inputTextarea component with theming, autogrow and cross browser maxlength constraint. Latest addition to this extension set is displaying number of characters left during typing. To make things more flexible (as usual in PrimeFaces), we have added two new attributes; - counter: Id of the output component to display remaining characters text. - counterTemplate: Customizable template text like "{0} chars remaining! Use it wisely" Check out PrimeFaces Labs to try it out!...

PrimeFaces Star Rating was based on a 3rd party plugin until now and we've decided to come up with our own for 3.3. While on it, we've added a couple of more handy features; - Improved quality of star icons - Removed hover as it might be confusing - Added readonly rendering, improved disabled rendering - Added style and styleClass options and migrated css classes to PF conventions - In addition to already existing "rate" ajax behavior event, "cancel" event is now...

PrimeFaces 3.3 brings handy features regarding displaying facesmessages. These features were already available in PrimeFaces Extensions Project with a different implementation and there was a popular community request to promote these ideas to PrimeFaces. Also during a team meeting last week, our consultants mentioned that they needed at least two of these during their work onsite for a client where they provide onsite assistance on PrimeFaces. Long story short, here are the 3 additions; Targetable Messages There maybe...

A good component should hide the complexity but keep the flexibility, this is one of the design goals of PrimeFaces. This is a follow-up post to DataTable Hooks. To start with, see the pagination sample at the mentioned entry.

PrimeFaces 3.3 development has begun fast and furious! Starting with the new partial submit feature, we are glad to introduce another extension feature to Ajax Framework called PrimeFaces Selector API in short PFS. PFS integrates jQuery Selector API with JSF component referencing model, so for partial update and process, referencing JSF components can be done using jQuery Selector API instead of regular JSF model which is based on UIComponent.findComponent. So how does it work? Syntax is @(selector), here...
