 package javax.faces.component;

UISelectOne is a UIComponent that represents the user's choice of zero or one items from among a discrete set of available options. The user can modify the selected value. Optionally, the component can be preconfigured with a currently selected item, by storing it as the value property of the component.

This component is generally rendered as a select box or a group of radio buttons.

By default, the rendererType property is set to "javax.faces.Menu". This value can be changed by calling the setRendererType() method.

 public class UISelectOne extends UIInput {
     // ------------------------------------------------------ Manifest Constants


The standard component type for this component.

     public static final String COMPONENT_TYPE = "javax.faces.SelectOne";


The standard component family for this component.

     public static final String COMPONENT_FAMILY = "javax.faces.SelectOne";


The message identifier of the javax.faces.application.FacesMessage to be created if a value not matching the available options is specified.

    public UISelectOne() {
    // -------------------------------------------------------------- Properties
    public String getFamily() {
        return ();
    // ------------------------------------------------------ Validation Methods


In addition to the standard validation behavior inherited from UIInput, ensure that any specified value is equal to one of the available options. Before comparing each option, coerce the option value type to the type of this component's value following the Expression Language coercion rules. If the specified value is not equal to any of the options, enqueue an error message and set the valid property to false.

        // Skip validation if it is not necessary

        if (!found) {
            FacesMessage message =
            context.addMessage(getClientId(context), message);
    // --------------------------------------------------------- Private Methods


Return true if the specified value matches one of the available options, performing a recursive search if if a javax.faces.model.SelectItemGroup instance is detected.
