    RichFaces is not defined

    Mehdi Haloui Newbie

      Hi,
      Well its my first time using the richfaces library, but i ve been using some other libraries though..
      i m having a problem with the dropDownMenu component, i used the example from the livedemo but when i launch my application i get the javascript error Richfaces is not defined:

      RichFaces is not defined
      <td class="optionList"><div class="dr-me...tStyle':''} );</script></div></div></td>
      
      RichFaces is not defined
      <td class="optionList"><div class="dr-me...tStyle':''} );</script></div></div></td>


      The code im using for the menu is
      <h:form>
       <h:panelGrid columnClasses="optionList" columns="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
       <rich:dropDownMenu style="border:1px solid #{a4jSkin.panelBorderColor}" value="Option1"
       submitMode="none" direction="bottom-right" jointPoint="tr">
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption1-1" />
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption1-2"/>
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption1-3" />
       </rich:dropDownMenu>
       <rich:dropDownMenu style="border:1px solid #{a4jSkin.panelBorderColor}" value="Option2"
       submitMode="none" direction="bottom-right" jointPoint="tr">
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption2-1" />
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption2-2" />
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption2-3" />
       </rich:dropDownMenu>
       <rich:dropDownMenu style="border:1px solid #{a4jSkin.panelBorderColor}" value="Option3"
       submitMode="none" direction="bottom-right" jointPoint="tr">
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption3-1" />
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption3-2" />
       <rich:menuItem value="Suboption3-3" />
       </rich:dropDownMenu>
      
       </h:panelGrid>
       </h:form>


      the menu is shown, but there is no action and the submenus dont appear..
      i am using the RichFaces3.3.0.GA release..
      i dont know if you need more details..but in case just let me know..
      thanks in advance

          Well, just want to add one little thing, in the firebug html viewer, when i check the content of the javascript links of richfaces (which are automatically generated..) for example:


          <script type="text/javascript" src="*.jsf/faces/a4j/g3_3_0.GAorg.ajax4jsf.javascript.PrototypeScript">



          the content is an apache tomcat 404 error.. so i guess the main problem is that the route for that source code is not loading from the correct place.. but this is made automatically so i dont really know how can i get it to work..
          hope this helps..
          thanks again
