    ajax tabPanel reRender only works on tab 1

    Anne Childress Newbie

      I've got a tabPanel enclosed in an a4j:form, as shown below:

       <a4j:form id="interviewform">
       <a4j:jsFunction status="majorstatus" name="makeDirty" ajaxSingle="true" limitToList="true" reRender="atinterviewreg">
       <a4j:actionparam name="param1" assignTo="#{IntakeOffenderBean.isDirty}" />
       </a4j:jsFunction>
       <h:inputHidden value="#{DOPIntakeAdminTechInterviewBean.reInit}"></h:inputHidden>
       <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
       <tr>
       <td align="center">
       <a4j:outputPanel id="atinterviewreg" ajaxRendered="true">
       <a4j:commandButton status="savestatus" id="saveButton" value="Save Interview" oncomplete="javascript:showErrors();" actionListener="#{DOPIntakeAdminTechInterviewBean.saveInterview}" reRender="atinterviewreg,panelerrors" rendered="#{IntakeOffenderBean.isDirty}"/>
       <a4j:status forceId="true" id="savestatus" onstart="Richfaces.showModalPanel('saveprogressmp',{width:450, top:200})" onstop="Richfaces.hideModalPanel('saveprogressmp')" />
       <rich:spacer height="16px" width="100px" rendered="#{!IntakeOffenderBean.isDirty}"></rich:spacer>
       </a4j:outputPanel>
       </td>
       </tr>
       </table>
       <rich:spacer height="4px"></rich:spacer>
       <rich:tabPanel id="admintechinterviewtabs" style="width: 96%;" binding="#{DOPIntakeAdminTechInterviewBean.adminTechTabs}">

       </rich:tab>
       <rich:tab id="stg" switchType="ajax" status="majorstatus" label="STG" actionListener="#{DOPIntakeAdminTechInterviewBean.newTabSelected}">

       </rich:tab>
       <rich:tab id="criminalhistory" switchType="ajax" status="majorstatus" label="Criminal History" actionListener="#{DOPIntakeAdminTechInterviewBean.newTabSelected}">

       </f:facet>
       <f:facet name="controls">
       <h:graphicImage value="/images/close.png" style="cursor:pointer" onclick="Richfaces.hideModalPanel('editparentmp')" />
       </f:facet>
       <ui:include src="\parentedit.xhtml"/>
       </rich:modalPanel>
      


      Everything works perfectly on tab 1 where I can make ajax calls and reRender portions of the content shown in interviewidentification.xhtml (the included facelet on tab 1). I have similar actions being performed on tab 2, but none of the reRenders work. I really need the tabPanel to work in ajax mode, as I am doing such things as preventing the user from going to aanother tab if the data has been changed on the current tab. I also like the ability to tie the a4j:status to the tab changes so the user knows that something is happening. Why does the reRender not work on any other tab than tab 1?

      Below is the code from the facelet included on tab 2:

       <rich:panel id="intfampanel" style="width: 650px; height: 276px; overflow: auto;">
       <rich:spacer height="10px"></rich:spacer>

       </div>
       <rich:spacer height="10px"></rich:spacer>
       <div class="lineDiv">

       <div style="position: absolute; right: 6px; height: 24px; top: -10px;">

      Essentially, on tab 2, I press the Add Mother button, which opens the modal panel on the parent facelet called editparentmp. This modal panel includes the facelet shown below:

      When finished adding the mother's information, I press the Save button, which reRenders the errors (if any) as well as 3 a4j:outputPanels on the facelet included in tab 2. If there are no errors, the 3 outputPanels should reRender, but they don't. I have employed this exact same mechanism in the content included in tab 1, and it works perfectly.

      WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!!! HELP!!

      I am using RichFaces 3.1.4GA
