    Updating Bean without Submit

    Dov Frankel Newbie

      I have a couple different controls, an h:selectOneMenu and an h:selectOneRadio, that I would like to update the values in the bean they're bound to, without submitting (and forcing a refresh of) the whole form. Using the valueChangeListener attribute, even with immediate set to "true" doesn't accomplish this (like I would have thought it should). How should I go about this? I'm using Seam and RichFaces on JBoss AS.

          I suggest you using supports nested to your inputs? then just use ajaxSingle=true on them in order to process just concrete inputs. And in this case immediate not need to be used.

            Thanks for your quick response. That worked great for the selectOneMenu, but I'm still having problems with the selectOneRadio, however, since it's in a rich:dataTable. I have the onclick event handler hooked up to the following javascript:

            function radioButton( radio )
             {
             var id = radio.name.substring(radio.name.lastIndexOf(':'));
             var el = radio.form.elements;
             for( var i = 0; i < el.length; i++ )
             {
             if( el.name.substring(el.name.lastIndexOf(':')) == id )
             {
             el.checked = false;
             }
             }
             radio.checked = true;
             }


            I tried the following in my xhtml file: what should be different?

             <h:selectOneRadio onclick="radioButton(this);"
             valueChangeListener="#{manager.setSelected}"
             styleClass="radioButton">
             <f:selectItem itemValue="#{obj.id}"/>
             <a4j:support event="onchange" ajaxSingle="true" reRender="table"/>
             </h:selectOneRadio>
