Open af:inputListOfValues popup by calling JavaScript programmatically

af:inputListOfValues provides option to open Lov values in a popup and allow user to search, We can open this popup by clicking on magnifying glass icon

Recently I have seen a thread on OTN forum where user wants to open lov popup on a button click after checking some conditions and also found a post by Frank Nimphius Where he used javascript to open Lov popup on double click of mouse.
So guess what I have done ? ;)
Just called that javascript fucntion programmatically on button click

Navigating to (open) specific tab in af:panelTabbed programmatically -Oracle ADF

Hello All,
This post is about a development requirement - how to move (navigate or open) to a specific tab in panel tabbed  in Oracle ADF?
Suppose i have to open second tab of af:panelTabbed on a button click, so see how to do this using ADF Faces
  • Create a Fusion Web application and a page to drop panel tabbed and a button

  • now bind panel tabbed and it's showDetailItem to managed bean, in order to use disclosed property and to get client id
  • See the code to open (disclose) a specific tab of af:panelTabbed
        //Binding of Panel Tabbed
        private RichPanelTabbed panelTabBind;
        public void setPanelTabBind(RichPanelTabbed panelTabBind) {
            this.panelTabBind = panelTabBind;
        public RichPanelTabbed getPanelTabBind() {
            return panelTabBind;
         * @Method to disclose (open) specific tab
         * Pass the binding of af:showDetailItem that you want to open
        public void setDisclosedFirstTab(RichShowDetailItem tabBind) {
            RichPanelTabbed richPanelTabbed = getPanelTabBind();
            for (UIComponent child : richPanelTabbed.getChildren()) {
                RichShowDetailItem sdi = (RichShowDetailItem) child;
                if (sdi.getClientId().equals(tabBind.getClientId())) {
                } else {

  • Now see the code written on button action- here i have checked that which tab is currently disclosed? and based on that i have passed next tab binding to this method

  •     /**Method to be called on Navigate Button
         * @param actionEvent
        public void naviGateButtonAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
            if (firstTabBind.isDisclosed()) {
            } else if (secTabBind.isDisclosed()) {
            } else {

  • now run your page and see navigation in af:panelTabbed

Creating pdf file using Apache PDFBox API in ADF Faces and opening it in new window -Oracle ADF

Apache PDFBox library is an open source java tool for working with PDF documents, go to for API docs and download jar (pdfbox-app-1.8.2) from there.

  •  Now create a fusion web application and add jar to view controller project's library and class-path
  •  To convert text to pdf format, i have used an input text and bind it to bean (to get value)
  •  Now see the button code that converts text to pdf file format using Apache PDFBox

  •         PDDocument document = new PDDocument();
            PDPage page = new PDPage();
            // Create a new font object selecting one of the PDF base fonts
            PDFont font = getFontDef();
            // Start a new content stream which will "hold" the to be created content
            PDPageContentStream contentStream = new PDPageContentStream(document, page);
            // Define a text content stream using the selected font, moving the cursor and drawing the text "Hello World"
            contentStream.setFont(font, 10);
            contentStream.moveTextPositionByAmount(50, 700);
            // Make sure that the content stream is closed:
            // Save the results and ensure that the document is properly closed:
            try {
            } catch (COSVisitorException e) {

  • now your pdf is generated in fixed path, and if user want to open it immediately , try to do this

  •         if ((new File("D:\\Hello World.pdf")).exists()) {
                Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("rundll32 url.dll,FileProtocolHandler D:\\Hello World.pdf");
            } else {
                System.out.println("File is not exists");

  • this code invokes File Protocol using Runtime class
  • Run this application and see-
 Click on generate button-
