Changing default text of af:dialog buttons (ok,cancel) in ADF

Hello All,
you all have used pop up component with af:dialog in ADF,
default dialog component look like this inside popup

in ADF there is option to change dialog type , select dialog component and go to property inspector-

But sometimes we need to change default dialog button's text as per our requirement, to do this follow steps mentioned below

  • Drag a popup having dialog as its child component on page
  • select af:dialog in structure window and go to property inspector

  • In property inspector navigate Appearance--->Text 

  • Now set values for Affirmative and cancel text 
  • Now run your application and see-

  • But it's outcome doesn't get changed as it is static, you can see this in managed bean code, i have created dialog Listener and a cancelListener in managed bean 

  • import javax.faces.application.FacesMessage;
    import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;
    public class DialogListenerBean {
        public DialogListenerBean() {
        public void dialogListener(DialogEvent dialogEvent) {
            FacesMessage msg = new FacesMessage("You have clicked- " + dialogEvent.getOutcome().name());
            FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(null, msg);
        public void cancelListener(PopupCanceledEvent popupCanceledEvent) {
            FacesMessage msg = new FacesMessage("You have clicked- cancel");
            FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(null, msg);

  • When you click on ok and cancel (with changed text), it will return same outcome that was before changing button's text

Cheers- Merry Christmas :-)
