General Description


The PropertySheet component is used to display the meta data of an object in the repository. The component is very flexible in that the properties and associations displayed can be specified manually, they can be derived dynamically or driven via external configuration.

Examples


Manually configuring using property and association tags

<r:propertySheetGrid value='#{EditDocPropsDialog.editableNode}' columns='2'>
   <r:property name='name' />
   <r:property name='description' />
   <r:property name='created' />
   <r:property name='modified' />
   <r:association name='translations' />
</r:propertySheetGrid>

Manually configuring using standard JSF tags

<r:propertySheetGrid value='#{EditDocPropsDialog.editableNode}' var='node' columns='4'>
   <h:outputText value='Name' />
   <h:inputText value='#{node.properties.name}' />
   <h:outputText value='Description' />
   <h:inputText value='#{node.properties.description}' />        
   <h:outputText value='Created' />
   <h:inputText value='#{node.properties.created}' readOnly='true'>
      <f:convertDateTime dateStyle='short' />
   </h:inputText>
   <h:outputText value='Modified' />
   <h:inputText value='#{node.properties.modified}' readOnly='true'>
      <f:convertDateTime dateStyle='short' />
   </h:inputText>
</r:propertySheetGrid>

Dynamically configured

<r:propertySheetGrid value='#{EditDocPropsDialog.editableNode}' columns='2'/>

This example shows ALL properties and associations that the Node currently contains.



Externally configured

<r:propertySheetGrid value='#{DocumentDetailsBean.document}' var='documentProps' 
                     externalConfig='true' columns='1' labelStyleClass='propertiesLabel' />

In this example the properties and associations that appear are configured in the Config Service.
