    rich:modalPanel disables selectOneMenu after error messages

    Michael Rodgers Newbie

      Hello All,

      I have been working this for a while now and not really sure how to get
      around it. I have a SelectOneMenu populated with selectItems inside a
      form. The required attribute is set to true and the requiredMessage
      attribute is set to "Please select a position". The form elements (including
      the selectOneMenu) is nested inside a rich:modalPanel.

      Without the modalPanel this problem doesn't occur, so I thought I would
      ask you all for suggestions.

      What happens is that since the selectOneMenu is required the messages
      fire--the expected behavior BUT the selectOneMenu for some reason also
      disables itself. Now, I am thinking that this "disabled" quality of the
      selectOneMenu has something to do with the component loosing it value
      and/or selectItems values--not sure though. The applicable code is listed
      below:

      <rich:modalPanel id="groupsAddPanel"
       width="500" height="450"
       style="background-color: #EEEECB;"
       binding="# {membersHandler.addNewMembers}">
       <f:facet name="header">
       <h:panelGroup>
       <h:outputText id="groupsAddPanelHeaderText"
       value="#{membersHandler.addMembersHeaderLabel}"/>
       </h:panelGroup>
       </f:facet>

      I didn't see a need to post the valueChangeListern method because
      according to my debugger I never get there. The require=true attribute
      doesn't let the valueChangeListerner fire.

      Any ideas?
