The rich:select component is designed to replace standard h:selectOneMenu. It adds various features and options including core Ajax functionality, and skinning. Some of the notable features are:

  • Skinning following RichFaces standard principles. This allows the component to have unified look and feel across all the browsers.
  • Better navigation across select items using the keyboard
  • Default label functionality which is common for all the RichFaces inputs.

This example shows a select component that behaves basically the same as the standard:

Simples select
Option 1
Option 2
Option 3
Option 4
Option 5

In the next example you can manually enter values, and any invalid entries are not allowed.
