OutputLabel is an extension to standard outputLabel component. Extended features are;

  • OutputLabel sets its value as the label of the target component to be displayed in validation errors so that target component does not need to define label attribute again.
  • Support for components with non-trivial markup like spinner, autocomplete, calendar and so on which are not supported by standard outputLabel.
  • Theme aware error styling when associated component is not valid.
  • Required field indicator.
