I have pe:clipboard working elsewhere in an application. I was adding it to a p:dialog which is used to display a web service message which is XML text.

The text is displayed in a p:inputTextarea. Rather than having to make the user click into the field, press CTRL+A and then CTRL+C, I put a p:commandButton on the dialog to provide the copy to the clipboard functionality instead.

However, when the page where the dialog is used is rendered, a bizarre error is produced:

Code: Select all

	at javax.faces.component.UIComponent.encodeAll(UIComponent.java:1859)
The markup is:

Code: Select all

<pe:clipboard id="copyXmlData" trigger="cmdCopyXmlContent" action="copy"
	target="#{xmlViewPopupController.xmlDisplay}">
	<p:ajax event="success"
		listener="#{xmlClipboardController.successListener}" 
		update="webServiceMessageListForm:webServiceMessageListFormGrowler" />
	<p:ajax event="error"
		listener="#{xmlClipboardController.errorListener}" 
		update="webServiceMessageListForm:webServiceMessageListFormGrowler" />
</pe:clipboard>

<p:commandButton id="cmdCopyXmlContent" icon="fa fa-copy" process="@this" 
	value="XML to Clipboard" action="copy" />
The xmlViewPopupController.xmlDisplay item is just a String field on the controller, containing the XML string was is read from the database where the messages are logged.

Using PF 6.1 and PFE 6.1.1.

Any ideas?

Let me try and reproduce and get back to you. This may have been something that was fixed between 6.1.1 and 6.2.3 versions of PFE but not sure.

I will let you know what I find out.

As a note have you tried putting the pe:clipboard AFTER the p:commandButton in the XHTML?

I had not actually. However:

Code: Select all

[Fatal Error] :1:1: Content is not allowed in prolog.

	at javax.faces.component.UIComponentBase.encodeEnd(UIComponentBase.java:920)
The only change was that the page rendered. When I invoked the command to read the XML and bring up the dialog, the above exception occurred.

Ok so the target you are copying is XML. I should be able to reproduce it. Feels like a bug in my code or possibly the clipboard code.

Yep. Looks like the presence of the XML within an XHTML stream is not being protected or encoded correctly.

Interestingly enough, the page works fine when pe:clipboard isn't on the page.

Its most likely when I am writing the content to the Clipboard widget i just need to escape it to prevent this issue.

OK I have tried everything to reproduce this and I cannot.

XML Content:

Code: Select all

private String copyInput = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><note>Test Copy!</note>";

Code: Select all

<p:inputTextarea id="txtCopy" value="#{clipboardController.copyInput}" />
		<p:commandButton id="btnCopy" value="Copy" icon="fa fa-copy" />
		<pe:clipboard id="clipCopy" trigger="btnCopy" action="copy" target="txtCopy">
			<p:ajax event="success" listener="#{clipboardController.successListener}" />
			<p:ajax event="error" listener="#{clipboardController.errorListener}" />
</pe:clipboard>
It copies fine. Is there anyway you could try PrimeFaces 6.2 with PrimeFaces Extensions 6.2.3? I wonder if this issue has already been fixed.
