Facelets UI Tag Inspectors

In Facelets Tools Professional, support for all Facelets UI tags includes property inspectors to edit visual tags in Dreamweaver. Each property inspector appears on its own in Dreamweaver's properties panel, and includes a form to help you populate the tag quickly and easily.

The difference between property inspectors and the tag chooser dialogs opened from the drag-and-drop toolbar is that property inspectors can be accessed at any time, while tag chooser dialogs only appear when you first add the tag to your page.

Additionally, property inspectors will detect any existing values in your Facelets UI tags, and display them in the properties panel, allowing you to make adjustments to your tags with minimal interruption to your work flow.

This also allows you to modify the source code of your JSF pages while working in design view, and is effectively direct access to code view without actually displaying code view itself.
