Hi,
Is it possible to access the <body> element from a managed bean?
I want to add the "onLoad" attribute programmatically.





The statement above returns null. I guess this is because the ViewRoot contains JSF-Components only?

Thanks in advance.

In short yes. If you want to have access to the 'head' then you need a head component. It would be simple to write one, though component libraries such as woodstock [1] have a head component.

Additionally, JSF 2.0, there will be a basic head component included.

Thanks for your reply,

I'm using richfaces and haven't found a "head" component there. But I found <a4j:jsFunction>
which solved my problem. Instead of using the "onload" attribut I now call my javascript function with
the jsFunction component.
