View | Tool Windows | JSF

Note

This window is available only for modules with a JSF facet.

The JSF tool window provides a categorized hierarchical view of your JSF resources.

jsf_tool_window

The categories correspond to JSF element types (managed beans, converters, components, etc.). You can show or hide the categories using the toolbar buttons. You can also open the elements shown in the tool window in the editor.

Toolbar

Use the toolbar buttons to show or hide the corresponding categories of JSF elements. All the buttons are toggles that enable or disable displaying a category.

Item Tooltip Description
library Show from libraries Click this button to show or hide the external library elements referenced from the source code of your JSF elements.

Note that enabling this option does not add a separate category to the tree view. It just makes the view scope broader adding to it the libraries that the corresponding modules depend on. As a result, the external library elements are shown in the appropriate JSF categories.

jsf_managed_beans Show Managed Beans Click this button to show or hide managed beans.
jsf_converters Show Converters Click this button to show or hide converters.
jsf_components Show Components Click this button to show or hide (UI) components.
jsf_renderes Show Renderers Click this button to show or hide renderers.
jsf_validators Show Validators Click this button to show or hide validators.

Opening elements in the editor

You can open the elements shown in the JSF tool window in the editor. To do that, select the element of interest and press F4F4F4F4F4F4F4F4F12 or Ctrl+Shift+ECommand Down or F4F4F3.

To open the elements which are the "leaves" of the tree (i. e. the ones at the bottom of the hierarchy), you can also use a double click.
