I know there has been a lot of topics on this subject, but I'm either dumb or just missing something.
Here's my situation. I have a <hx:dataTableEx that uses a <hx:commandExRowAction> to get the selected row data and store it in sessinScope variables.
I need a way to change the background color of the selected row. I'd like to use JavaScript because I don't want to add checkboxes to my table. Does anyone have an example of a <hx:dataTableEx calling JavaScript to change the background color of the selected row? If there is a better way to do this, I'm open to suggestions.

thanks
Dan MacLeod

JSF generates HTML only.
JS intercepts on HTML only.

So open the JSF page in your favourite browser, view the generated HTML output and base your JS code on that.
