      Is it possible to make rich client with RichFaces? I want to make a convenient form to data entry without a mouse.
      I want to do the following:
      1. To make a modal window
      2. To start the modal window and to set focus on a particular field


                                  <a:commandLink value="#{messages['message.name']}" reRender="orderingPanel"
                                            oncomplete="Richfaces.showModalPanel('orderingPanel', {});"
                                      <a:actionparam name="h" value="#{_search.h}"



      modal window


               <rich:modalPanel id="orderingPanel" autosized="true" width="500" height="260">
                        <f:facet name="header">
                            <h:outputText value="#{messages['title']}" />
                        <h:form id="orderingForm">
                            <h:panelGrid columns="1">
                               <s:decorate id="customerField" template="/layout/edit.xhtml">
                                  <ui:define name="label">#{messages['customer']}</ui:define>
                                  <h:inputText id="customer" value="#{orderHome.instance.customer}" size="50"
                                         required="true" requiredMessage="#{messages['name']}">
                                  <a:support id="customerCheck" event="onblur" reRender="customerField, severityPanel" focus="email"/>




      This code doesn't work.


      3. If the validation doesn't success, focus remained on wrong field

      4. Don't validate, if user clicks the Cancel button.


      I use RichFaces 3.3.2.SR1 and Seam 2.1.1.

      Tell me please, where can I find my problems solution.

      Or it'll be better to use another product, like jQuery or GWT!
