Extending any Component with this Extension allows you to set an attribute to the client side Widget from the server side.

This can be very handy to provide WAI-ARIA attributes for the Components.

Sample code

TextField textField = new TextField();
textField.setId( FIELD_ID);

Label label = new Label( "First Name:");

Attribute labelFor = new Attribute( "for", FIELD_ID);
labelFor.extend( label);
Label separateComboLabel = new Label( "Separate Caption");
layout.addComponent( separateComboLabel);

ComboBox noLabelCombo = new ComboBox();
layout.addComponent( noLabelCombo);

CaptionAttribute comboLabeled = new CaptionAttribute( separateComboLabel);
comboLabeled.extend( noLabelCombo);
