Description Winston Prakash 2007-11-05 23:42:08 UTC
It is impossible to set the id of XHTML components. The id is disabled.
The only way for now is to set it via JSP editor.

If I have some CSS rules in the Style Sheet


then it is impossible to assign it to XHTML <div> via property sheet.
I need to go to JSP and editr

<div id=container ..

Apparently this is because of:

     * @see org.netbeans.modules.visualweb.insync.beans.Bean#canSetName()
    public boolean canSetName() {
        return false;

in org.netbeans.modules.visualweb.insync.faces.HtmlBean

This was most likely intensional. So in that sense this is an enhancement.
