    EnumConverter for selectManyCheckbox not working - getAsObje

    Bolke de Bruin Newbie

      (aye pete ;-) )

      The following is developed on: JBoss 4.1.2 / Seam 2.0.0.CR2

      I have an entity chemical which declares this field:

       private Set<Equipment> equipment;
      


      Danger is an enum.

      I have tried using this in a page with a selectManyCheckbox:

       <h:selectManyCheckbox value="#{chemical.equipment}">
       <s:selectItems value="#{enumLists.equipment}" var="item" label="#{item}"/>
       <s:convertEnum />
       </h:selectManyCheckbox>
      


      Here enumLists.equipment is an array of the values of the Enum Equipment.

      However this renders the following issues when submitting the data in this page:

      sourceId=j_id19:j_id32[severity=(ERROR 2), summary=(Conversion Error setting value 'PP EP EX TOX' for '#{chemical.equipment}'. ), detail=(Conversion Error setting value 'PP EP EX TOX' for '#{chemical.equipment}'. )]
      


      Some more digging through writing a custom converter, I found out that getAsObject is not being called. However getAsString is.

      On the net I found a similar issue http://www.icefaces.org/JForum/posts/list/0/3634.page.
      Reported http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=108853 is that it should work.
