    rich:calendar custom converter not called

    Nicolas Gaudin Newbie

      Hello,

      Using RF 3.3.0GA

      I have the following converter

       <converter>
       <converter-id>MagicCalendarConverter</converter-id>
       <converter-class>com.mfpsoft.converters.MagicCalendarConverter</converter-class>
       </converter>
      


      and
      public class MagicCalendarConverter extends DateTimeConverter {
      
      // public MagicCalendarConverter() {
      // super();
      // }
      
      
       @Override
       public Object getAsObject(FacesContext arg0, UIComponent component, String dateString) {
       Object result;
       try{
       result = super.getAsObject(arg0, component, dateString);
       } catch (ConverterException ex){
       return null;
       }
       return result;
       }
      
       @Override
       public String getAsString(FacesContext arg0, UIComponent component, Object dateObject) {
       String result = null;
       try{
       result = super.getAsString(arg0, component, dateObject);
       } catch (ConverterException ex){
       return null;
       }
       return result;
       }
      
      }
      


      I tried using converter attribute or f:converter but getting the same result:
      =>Converter methods are never called.

      (for test, I specified a constructor (commented here) and it is called)

      Do you have any work around for this?
      Many thanks in advance
      Regards

          1) update your version to 3.3.1 latest CR.

          if not helps show the page also.

              It does not help:

              here is the jsp part in f:subview and f:form

              <rich:panel id="complement4_2Panel">
              <rich:calendar enableManualInput="true" popup="true" style="width:200px" datePattern="#{SessionBean.datePattern}"
              id="complement4_2"
              value="#{ClientFicheBean.client.complement4}" oninputchange="enableSave();" onchanged="enableSave();" >
              <f:converter converterId="MagicCalendarConverter"/>
              </rich:calendar>
              </rich:panel>

                package org.richfaces.demo.calendar;

                // public MagicCalendarConverter() {
                // super();
                // }
                
                
                 @Override
                 public Object getAsObject(FacesContext arg0, UIComponent component, String dateString) {
                 System.out.println("CalendarConverter.getAsObject()");
                 Object result;
                 try{
                 result = super.getAsObject(arg0, component, dateString);
                 } catch (ConverterException ex){
                 return null;

                 return result;
                 }
                
                 @Override

                 String result = null;
                 try{
                 result = super.getAsString(arg0, component, dateObject);
                 } catch (ConverterException ex){
                 return null;
                 }
                 return result;
                 }
                
                }
                

                 <rich:calendar value="#{calendarBean.selectedDate}"
                 locale="#{calendarBean.locale}"
                 popup="#{calendarBean.popup}"
                 datePattern="#{calendarBean.pattern}"
                 showApplyButton="#{calendarBean.showApply}" cellWidth="24px" cellHeight="22px" style="width:200px">
                 <f:converter converterId="CalendarConverter"/>
                 </rich:calendar>
                 <h:commandButton value="click" />
                

                and
                 <converter>
                 <converter-id>CalendarConverter</converter-id>
                 <converter-class>org.richfaces.demo.calendar.CalendarConverter</converter-class>
                 </converter>
