Functions

addModal

  • Creates a new (empty) container for a modal overlay. A modal overlay is an overlay that blocks the content below it. To remove the modal overlay, use PrimeFaces.utils.removeModal.

    Parameters

    Returns JQuery

    The DOM element for the newly added modal overlay container.

appendDynamicOverlay

  • An overlay widget is moved in the DOM to the position as specified by the appendTo attribute. This function moves the widget to its position in the DOM and removes old elements from previous AJAX updates.

    Parameters

    Returns void

blockEnterKey

  • Blocks the enter key for an event like keyup or keydown. Useful in filter input events in many components.

    Parameters

    Returns void

calculateRelativeOffset

  • Calculates an element offset relative to the current scroll position of the window.

    Parameters

    Returns Coordinates

    The offset of the given element, relative to the current scroll position of the window.

cleanupDynamicOverlay

  • Cleanup the detached overlay.

    If you update a component, the overlay is rendered as specified in the component tree (XHTML view), but moved to a different container via JavaScript.

    This means that after an AJAX update, we now have 2 overlays with the same id:

    1. The newly rendered overlay, as a child of the element specified by the component tree (XHTML view)
    2. The old, detached overlay, as a child of the element specified by appendTo attribute

    We now need to remove the detached overlay. This is done by this function.

    Parameters

    Returns void
