Breadcrumb


General Description


The breadcrumb component enables the manipulation and display of a separated path string. It displays HTML links to enable the user to immediately select any part of the breadcrumb path. The breadcrumb provides standard action and actionListener command properties for developers to handle user interaction with the component.

separator - the separator string to use when displaying the breadcrumb. The default value is the '>' character.

action - command outcome action value.

actionListener - command listener method binding.

showRoot - whether to show the first token in the the path string.

     action='success' actionListener='#{bean.clickBreadcrumb}' />
