Tag widgetType

Facelet tag handler that renders a widget outside of a layout context, in a given mode.

This is helpful to reuse an existing widget within templates that do not need an entire layout to be defined.

In addition to the following attributes, any optional attributes are accepted and are used as properties of the created widget.

When rendered, some variables are exposed to the resolution context:

<nxl:widgetType name="text" mode="#{myMode}" value="#{myText}" required="true" /> or <nxl:widgetType name="#{myWidgetType}" mode="#{myMode}" value="#{myBoundProperty}" properties="#{myProperties}" />
