Subject RE: Struts 2 Themes
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2007 17:54:31 GMT

your best bet is to look at S2's source code. You can start by looking
at org.apache.struts2.views.freemarker.tags.StrutsModels.
Each of the tags have an associated "Model", and S2 taglib's models are
registered in this class.

So, for instance, if you look for TextField's template name :
1] There is a "TextFieldModel" instance declared
2] So, you look at
org.apache.struts2.views.freemarker.tags.TextFieldModel#getBean() :
3] You can see "return new TextField(stack, req, res);"
4] So, you look at org.apache.struts2.components.TextField
5] You can see : final public static String TEMPLATE = "text";

=> So, the template name is "text" ;)
