Yes, this would be a great contribution.<br>
We have a skin demo in ADF Faces which I think is really useful. It
shows all the skinning keys and <br>
you can turn on/off each one to see what effect it has. <br>

This can be time-consuming to put in place.<br>

    <pre wrap="">Hello Adonis,

I'm very glad to see this -- Trinidad _really_ needs a new demo :-).

Trinidad has a pretty solid framework, but the default look-and-feel
(and the other skins) are really....oldschool.

Looking forward to see the result, Adonis!

      <pre wrap="">Hi,

Almost an year ago a discussion take place regarding the Trinidad skin and
components demo rewriting.
There is also an issue opened on wiki regarding this subject.
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href=""></a>

Now I have some time and I want to start to work on this subject ;)

Because I'm an organized guy I think is better to have a little action
So I've made this action plan that looks like this:
-  components overview (a little investigation on the already existing
- components reclassification (we can improve the already existing
classification of the components)
- Trinidad shining mechanism study (very useful to understand what is
possible what is not)
- components skin design (all stuff regarding the components look and
- skin implementation
- demo site design (components demo application look and feel)
- demo site implementation (if is needed)

For the beginning I've started with the component overview.
So I made a table with all components and several related information
- component category
- a field that indicate if the component manifests in the visible way (is
a button, a panel ...) or is a invisible one (like the iterator)
- have interactive samples (demos)
- is documented.
- have skinning capabilities.
- have skinning keys documentation.
- a short description of the component

All these information was taken from Trinidad component demo page:
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href=""></a>

Please look in the atached *.xls file.

So, what do you think about this component overview table and about the
approach in general ?
If anyone find a wrong piece the information and/or posses information
that is not present in this table, can notify me and I will made the
required change.

Have a nice day !
