    value of selectItems not posted in the form?

    idylle test Newbie


      I've got a problem with the h:selectOneMenu and s:selectItems elements.

      If I use h:selectOneMenu with f:selectItem ("id="colaff" " in the code below) , the value chosen in the select box is part of the values submitted with the form, no problem.
      But if I use h:selectOneMenu with s:selectItems ("id="tpcidt" " in the code below), the value selected in the box is ignored when I submit the form.

      <h:form id="collectivitesSearch" styleClass="edit" accept-charset="UTF-8" >
       <s:decorate template="layout/display.xhtml">
       <ui:define name="label">Ville</ui:define>
       <h:inputText id="colvil" value="#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colvil}"/>
       <s:decorate template="layout/display.xhtml">
       <ui:define name="label">Type de collectivité</ui:define>
       <h:selectOneMenu id="tpcidt" value="#{collectivitesList.collectivites.typcol}">
       <s:selectItems value="#{typcolList.resultList}" var="untypcol" label="#{untypcol.tpclib}" noSelectionLabel="Select..." hideNoSelectionLabel="false"/>
       <s:convertEntity />
       <s:decorate template="layout/display.xhtml">
       <ui:define name="label">Affiliation</ui:define>
       <h:selectOneMenu id="colaff" value="#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colaff}">
       <f:selectItem itemValue="" itemLabel=" " />
       <f:selectItem itemValue="O" itemLabel="Oui" />
       <f:selectItem itemValue="N" itemLabel="Non" />
       <div class="actionButtons">
       <h:commandButton id="search" value="Chercher" action="/CollectivitesList.xhtml?firstResult=0">

      Should I add something in my pages.xml? (I tried to add the param "tpcidt" but with no effect)

          Here are my beans :

          The entity bean (just the attributes) :

          @Table(name = "collectivites", schema = "public")
          public class Collectivites implements java.io.Serializable {
           private int colidt;
           private Typcol typcol;
           private Departements departements;
           private String colnom;
           private String coltel;
           private String colfax;
           private String coladr;
           private String colcp;
           private String colnmc;
           private String coltlc;
           private Integer colpop;
           private String colaff;
           private String colvil;
           public Collectivites() {
           + getter and setter

          The query bean :
          public class CollectivitesList extends EntityQuery {
           private static final String[] RESTRICTIONS = {
           "lower(collectivites.colnom) like concat('%',lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colnom}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.coltel) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.coltel}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.colfax) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colfax}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.coladr) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.coladr}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.colcp) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colcp}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.colnmc) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colnmc}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.coltlc) like concat(lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.coltlc}),'%')",
           "lower(collectivites.colvil) like concat('%',lower(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colvil}),'%')",
           "collectivites.colaff like concat(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.colaff},'%')",
           "collectivites.typcol like concat(#{collectivitesList.collectivites.typcol},'%')",};
           private Collectivites collectivites = new Collectivites();
           public String getEjbql() {
           return "select collectivites from Collectivites collectivites";
           public Integer getMaxResults() {
           return 25;
           public Collectivites getCollectivites() {
           return collectivites;
           public List<String> getRestrictions() {
           return Arrays.asList(RESTRICTIONS);

            And you get no messages displayed in your h:message/h:messages?

              no, the page is just redisplayed with the whole list of results, ignoring the "tpcidt" and the select box is back to "Select..." instead of having my choice selected.

              If I put this :

              <h:commandButton id="search" value="Chercher" />
              in my command button, it works but :
              1- I need the firstresult=0 param
              2- It won't work after if I try to use the next page link to navigate through results pages

                Surely you want to call an action on the backing bean. Normally you have action="#{backingBean.foo}". You certainly can't append query string parameters to an action like that.

                  But I don't understand why the other elements in the form are Ok and just this one is a problem.
