    a4j:support simple bypass validation question

    David Miller Newbie

      Hi all,


      Obviously, I am pretty new to JSF/RichFaces/etc.


      I have a checkbox with a4j support:


      <h:selectBooleanCheckbox  immediate="true" value="#{LocationBean.panelDisplayed}" id="id" validator="# LocationValidatorBean.validate}">

           <a4j:support event="onclick" ajaxSingle = "true" reRender="panelGroup"></a4j:support>


      and if they select the checkbox, I want to show the corresponding panel:


      <a4j:outputPanel id="panelGroup">
           <h:panelGrid id="panel1" rendered = "#{LocationBean.panelDisplayed}">



      However, the validator is called everytime I click the textbox. I don't want validation to occur at this time. If I set immediate to true on the a4j support, my panel group never gets displayed... Any ideas are greatly appreciated :-)
