    Strange input problem using ajax?

    Bjørn T Johansen Newbie

      I have the following code in my xhtml file..:

      <h:inputText id="observerstedskode" value="#{observBean.chosenObserv.lok}" size="20" maxlength="4"
       <a4j:support event="onblur" reRender="observExtraInfo" ajaxSingle="true" limitToList="true"/>
       <f:validateLength maximum="4"/>
       </h:inputText>
      


      When leaving the field, the observExtrainfo panel is rerendered but the problem is that the value I am checking in my manage bean (observBean.chosenObserv.lok) is not updated.. Or when the length of the string in lok is > 0 then lok has the correct value. But when I delete the value in my form and leave the field, the lok value still has the old value instead of an empty value, which makes my lookup not work...

      What am I missing? Shouldn't lok be emtpy when rerendering the page as long as the input value field is empty?


      Regards,

      BTJ

          Show your xhtml , backing bean code and faces-config. The onblur event should fire regardless of the value in observerstedskode.

            The onblur event is fired but the value of observBean.chosenObserv.lok is not updated when the inputfield is for lok is cleared...

              Ran a simple example based on provided xhtml and it ran fine..that's why I mentioned for you to show more code :)

                  Hmmm... I managed to post the wrong code.. :(

                  But I also found the problem.... :)
                  The reasong for this, was that the field was marked as required and hence could not update itself when cleared.... :-|
