no answer or tip?
when I use dataTable sorting function correctly.
I have the same question. My table is surrounded in an a4j:form (nothing special there, just an id attribute) and an a4j:region (again, nothing special, just an id attribute).
The sorting works fine with rich:dataTable (my main status fires, finishes and I get sorted results in the table), just not with rich:extendedDataTable (my main status fires and finishes, but the extdt status fires and never finishes).
Anybody? Why the extendedDataTable sorting hangs on status start, never switching back to stop?
try to surround the extendedDataTable with a <h:form>-tag.
