Class AjaxFallbackLink<T>

Type Parameters:
T - type of model object
All Implemented Interfaces:

Direct Known Subclasses:

public abstract class AjaxFallbackLink<T> extends Link<T>
An ajax link that will degrade to a normal request if ajax is not available or javascript is disabled.

If JavaScript is enabled then the registered JavaScript event 'click' handler will be used, otherwise the 'href' attribute if the markup element is an <a>, <area> or <link>. AjaxFallbackLink doesn't fallback if the markup element is none of the three above.

    • onInitialize

      protected void onInitialize()
      Description copied from class: Component
      This method is meant to be used as an alternative to initialize components. Usually the component's constructor is used for this task, but sometimes a component cannot be initialized in isolation, it may need to access its parent component or its markup in order to fully initialize. This method is invoked once per component's lifecycle when a path exists from this component to the Page thus providing the component with an atomic callback when the component's environment is built out.

      Overrides must call super#Component.onInitialize(). Usually this should be the first thing an override does, much like a constructor.

      Parent containers are guaranteed to be initialized before their children

      It is safe to use Component.getPage() in this method

      NOTE:The timing of this call is not precise, the contract is that it is called sometime before Component.onBeforeRender().
