(Quick Reference)



This tag renders an a user avatar image.

The avatar will be retrieved by the UI Set implementation from a remote service or other mechanism. Some systems may require an email address, others an account user name. The application and plugins will need to know what value to use - but the way you pass this identity in is predefined here.


<ui:avatar user="marc@grailsrocks.com" size="50" rating="G" title="An avatar" alt="This is an Avatar"/>

The user attribute can contain any value as appropriate for the underlying avatar mechanism the UI Set uses.
