Working with visualforce objects from Controller Extension

Hi, All - I have a few apex:commandButton on the page and one apex:outputPanel where I want to display some text onClick action by toggling between those apex:commandButton; I created an extension controller. Question: How can I access value property of apex:outputText from Apex. I placed 1 apex:outputText for each apex:commandButton Please suggest, thank you.



The value attribute of  the apex:outputText in Apex would not have changed the APEX property that was binded since its an outputText not inputText.  Are you just trying to determine which button was clicked wo/ creating multiple Apex methods,  if so consider onclick using apex:actionFunction with apex:param If you are you doing client side notification which your  prob better off doing this in javascript not APEX.


Please clarify your required behavior.

Thanks for reply Page design as: I need to reuse / toggle same page area to display contents returned from multiple buttons I saw a technique where rendered value is toggled true/false on output panel, but need snippet as I am new to SFDC Another way I thought if controller ext can access VF page objects
