    really strange a4j:support enabled (onclick rerender) checkb

    Kim Eik Newbie

      This following code works brilliantly when i dont add the facelets -jars and -filter to my web.xml and adding view handler to faces-config.xml. But in conjunction with facelets, when clicking on the checkbox, it does not rerender the output text. i have to first click the checkbox, and then force rerendering by clicking the "FORCE RERENDER" button to get the desired effect.

      <h:form id="form">
       <h:selectBooleanCheckbox value="#{testBean.bool}">
       <a4j:support event="onclick" bypassUpdates="false" ajaxSingle="true"/>
       </h:selectBooleanCheckbox>
      
       <a4j:commandButton value="FORCE RERENDER" id="button" />
      
       <a4j:outputPanel ajaxRendered="true">
       <h:outputText value="#{testBean.bool}" />
       </a4j:outputPanel>
      </h:form>
      


      my test case system is currently tomcat 5.5 with jsf 1.2 mojarra implementation, richfaces 3.2.2 and facelets 1.1.14. I have also tried tomcat 6 with no luck.

      does anyone have any idea's of what might be causing this?

          could you please also paste a4j:log output for the checkbox request only?

            the a4j:log does not output anything for the checkbox request. it is like the event handler isn't assosciated with the checkbox at all..

            here's the source code for the outputted html document.

              I seem to be having a similar problem. Using RF 3.2.2.SR1 and jsf-facelets 1.1.14 with tomahawk 1.1.8.

              The value gets submitted okay but the reRender option doesn't get invoked... Was there a reason for this?

              Unable to migrate to maven due to requirements.

              Did anyone find a way to solve this?
