Table of Contents


Since 4.0

The mobi:viewManager component provides a way to display multiple views in a manner that is more suitable for mobile devices. It renders a list of titles of verious views, which the user can touch to load the corresponding view. A built-in back button allows the user to go back to the list of views, without reloading the page. The component also provides other features that make navigation more efficient on mobile devices.

Getting Started

The basic use case of the ViewManager component consists of simply placing mobi:view tags with any arbitrary content inside the mobi:viewManager tag.

<mobi:viewManager title="View Manager"

	<mobi:view id="view1" title="View 1">
		<h:outputText value="View 1 content..." />
	<mobi:view id="view2" title="View 2">
		<h:outputText value="View 2 content..." />
