11g Release 1 (188.8.131.52.0)
UIComponent class: oracle.adf.view.rich.component.rich.layout.RichPanelGroupLayout
Component type: oracle.adf.RichPanelGroupLayout
The panelGroupLayout control is a layout element that arranges its children in one of a few simple patterns. Each pair of adjacent children will be separated by an optional separator child. It can lay out children consecutively (wrapping as needed), or in a single horizontal line, or vertically. <p/> Note about stretching layouts and flowing/scrolling layouts: <p/> With today's web browsers, it is not reliable to have vertically-stretched content inside of areas that also have scroll bars. If you want the outer areas of your page structure to stretch, you need to be careful of how you assemble your component tree.
Rules of thumb:
If you believe that you need to break one of these rules, this is an indication that your page structure is not following the page structure guidelines and you will likely have troubles getting your application to render consistently across various web browsers and computing platforms.
<p/> You may also alternatively place a facetRef, iterator, or switcher inside of the panelGroupLayout and their resolved children will be treated as if they were direct children of the panelGroupLayout. If you don't want this behavior, you may wrap the children you want to be grouped in a group component.
<af:panelGroupLayout layout="horizontal"> <f:facet name="separator"> <af:spacer width="10" height="1"/> </f:facet> <af:goLink text="oracle1" destination="http://www.oracle.com"/> <af:goLink text="oracle2" destination="http://www.oracle.com"/> <af:goLink text="oracle3" destination="http://www.oracle.com"/> </af:panelGroupLayout>
Apply Request Values
|Event delivered to describe an attribute change. Attribute change events are not delivered for any programmatic change to a property. They are only delivered when a renderer changes a property without the application's specific request. An example of an attribute change events might include the width of a column that supported client-side resizing.|
|separator||Content to be rendered once between each of the other children.|
|attributeChangeListener||javax.el.MethodExpression||Only EL||a method reference to an attribute change listener. Attribute change events are not delivered for any programmatic change to a property. They are only delivered when a renderer changes a property without the application's specific request. An example of an attribute change events might include the width of a column that supported client-side resizing.|
|binding||oracle.adf.view.rich.component.rich.layout.RichPanelGroupLayout||Only EL||an EL reference that will store the component instance on a bean. This can be used to give programmatic access to a component from a backing bean, or to move creation of the component to a backing bean.|
|clientComponent||boolean||Yes||Default Value: false
|customizationId||String||Yes||This attribute is deprecated. The 'id' attribute should be used when applying persistent customizations. This attribute will be removed in the next release.|
|halign||String||Yes||Valid Values: start, center, end, left, right
Default Value: start
the horizontal alignment for horizonal, vertical and scroll layouts. This is ignored if "layout" is "default". Note that if "layout" is "horizontal", the browsers can only reliably handle horizontal alignment of components that have either fixed widths or that are "inline" such as outputText.
|id||String||No||the identifier for the component. The identifier must follow a subset of the syntax allowed in HTML:
|inlineStyle||String||Yes||the CSS styles to use for this component. This is intended for basic style changes. The inlineStyle is a set of CSS styles that are applied to the root DOM element of the component. If the inlineStyle's CSS properties do not affect the DOM element you want affected, then you will have to create a skin and use the skinning keys which are meant to target particular DOM elements, like ::label or ::icon-style.|
|landmark||String||Yes||Valid Values: none, banner, complementary, contentinfo, main, navigation, search
Default Value: none
Specifies the WAI-ARIA landmark role for this panelGroupLayout.
|layout||String||Yes||Valid Values: default, horizontal, vertical, scroll
Default Value: default
the type of layout. Acceptable values include:
|partialTriggers||String||Yes||the IDs of the components that should trigger a partial update. This component will listen on the trigger components. If one of the trigger components receives an event that will cause it to update in some way, this component will request to be updated too. Identifiers are relative to the source component (this component), and must account for NamingContainers. If your component is already inside of a naming container, you can use a single colon to start the search from the root of the page, or multiple colons to move up through the NamingContainers - "::" will pop out of the component's naming container (or itself if the component is a naming container) and begin the search from there, ":::" will pop out of two naming containers (including itself if the component is a naming container) and begin the search from there, etc.|
|rendered||boolean||Yes||Default Value: true
whether the component is rendered. When set to false, no output will be delivered for this component (the component will not in any way be rendered, and cannot be made visible on the client). If you want to change a component's rendered attribute from false to true using PPR, set the partialTrigger attribute of its parent component so the parent refreshes and in turn will render this component.
|shortDesc||String||Yes||the short description of the component. This text is commonly used by user agents to display tooltip help text, in which case the behavior for the tooltip is controlled by the user agent, e.g. Firefox 2 truncates long tooltips. For form components, the shortDesc is displayed in a note window. For components that support the helpTopicId attribute it is recommended that helpTopicId is used as it is more flexible and is more accessibility-compliant.|
|styleClass||String||Yes||a CSS style class to use for this component. The style class can be defined in your jspx page or in a skinning CSS file, for example, or you can use one of our public style classes, like 'AFInstructionText'.|
|theme||String||Yes||The component style theme to apply to the children of this component. By default, this component is not styled for the different themes, but can be used to change the theme without associated skin changes that will occur with af:document and af:decorativeBox. Themes are not compatible with tonal styles and therefore only one method can be used per page (themes or tonal styles). A blank theme will remove the current theme, and a value of "inherit", null or not setting a theme will use the current theme. Skins are the sources of the the themes. Some skins may have no themed definitions. Suggested theme names include "dark", "medium", "light", and "default".|
|unsecure||java.util.Set||Yes||A whitespace separated list of attributes whose values ordinarily can be set only on the server, but need to be settable on the client. Currently, this is supported only for the "disabled" attribute.|
|valign||String||Yes||Valid Values: middle, top, bottom, baseline
Default Value: middle
the vertical alignment of a horizontal layout. This is ignored if "layout" is not "horizontal".
|visible||boolean||Yes||Default Value: true
the visibility of the component. If it is "false", the component will be hidden on the client. Unlike "rendered", this does not affect the lifecycle on the server - the component may have its bindings executed, etc. - and the visibility of the component can be toggled on and off on the client, or toggled with PPR. When "rendered" is false, the component will not in any way be rendered, and cannot be made visible on the client. In most cases, use the "rendered" property instead of the "visible" property.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
