Description jjjjjj 2008-03-28 22:05:01 UTC
Can we please get a spacer control to force gaps into certain page areas.

Also a   control will be most welcome; there is an anchor control though.

Are you asking for components which renders as spaces (or   's)? Passing to components.
Comment 2 jjjjjj 2008-04-04 21:54:47 UTC
Spacers; a trick I often use to get web page elements in row/column pairs properly aligned; it basically puts a
transparent 1x1 gif in certain table columns; it's width-height are then changed thus forcing a specific column width or
height when rendered.

nbsp; there's an existing control anchor that simply just renders the anchor tag in the page - it does not do anything -
but usefull at the moment to just put blank content into certain jsf grid panel areas; the ideal one would be the spacer
explained above but it's sometimes also very useful to force one or more non-breaking white spaces between two or more
controls; so the nbsp; control will simply just render a specified number of   's on the page; a component that
renders spaces are no good; it must be   - most browsers will remove spaces but the   forces the space.
