    <rich:fileUpload> stop upload using "onupload"

    mel r. Newbie

      Trying to realize mandatory field validation on my form (outside fileUpload component), when upload button is pressed.

      Since "validator" does not work yet, I use "onupload" event to intercept. Here I can do my validation and I am able to throw FacesMessage on error.


      The Message ist just shown shortly, then disappears and die upload is not cancelled.

      Hence, the only way I see to interrupt is, throwing an exception. But throwing an exception at this time appears to be a kind of "global killer" for my whole application.


      Is there any other way to tell fileUpload component not to start upload and keep FacesMessage displayed?
