Tag debug

When the ui:debug tag is placed in an XHTML page, it creates a component and adds it to the component tree. That debug component captures debugging information, namely the current state of the component tree and the scoped variables in the application, when the component is rendered. If the user presses CTRL + SHIFT + d, JSF opens a window that shows the debugging information captured by the debug component.

Typically, the best place to put the ui:debug tag is in an application's main template, which lets developers enable or disable viewing of debugging information in one central location. Additionally, page authors can change the hotkey (which by default is CTRL + SHIFT + d, where the d stands for debug) to CTRL + SHIFT + ?, where ? represents the key specified as the value of the hotkey attribute.

You can use the rendered attribute to control whether the debug component is rendered. Using an EL expression as the value for the rendered attribute lets you control whether debug output is enabled for multiple views based on a single bean property.

Defines a single character, that, pressed in conjunction with CTRL and SHIFT, will display the JSF debug window. By default, the hotkey is 'd'. The value for the hotkey attribute cannot be an EL expression.

(must evaluate to java.lang.String)

Controls whether the debug component is rendered. Valid values for this attribute are either the strings "true" or "false" or an EL expression that evaluates to either "true" or "false".

If this attribute's value is "false" or the value is an EL expression that evaluates to "false", the debug component is not rendered in the page, the hotkey attribute is disregarded, and users cannot open the debugging information window with a hotkey.
