    rich:suggestionBox and empty query

    Luca Molteni Newbie

      Hello, dear richfaces developers.


      Do you know if there is an easy way to make the autocomplete action of the rich:suggestionBox to be fired even with an empty string in it?


      I would like to have this user case:


      1. User goes into the input field

      2. User presses the spacebar

      3. All the results of my backing bean are showed.


      Thank you very much!

          seems something like that should works



          <h:inputText value="#{capitalsBean.capital}" id="text" styleClass="myinput" onkeyup="#{rich:component('suggestionBoxId')}.callSuggestion(true)"/>
          <rich:suggestionbox id="suggestionBoxId" for="text" tokens=",[]"

          additionally it's maybe could be nessesary to check if there are only spaces in input o r text with some space in order to pass param properly. but I think you could add such js.
