We have multiple select on the page that have a4j:support elements in them for their change events. We also have multiple text fields
if we get a reference to the text fields through prototype.js (useing $$(".classname")) and change the value, richfaces stops submitting the values for the select elements.
The function linked to the select onchange (from alert(select.onchange)) remains the same, however a filter placed at the top of the filter chain reports that the parameters (from request.getParameterMap()) for the selects are not getting passed back to the server. If we comment out the code that changes the text field's value, then everything works fine.
very very odd. Is there anywhere we can purchase support for richfaces, this bug is stalling our development, if we can't figure it out we have to drop richfaces.
please feel free to open jira issue but attach war example there.
