          I see that you use facelets, so you must have JSF2. Could you pls tell me what version of Richfaces you use?

           

          edit1

          I guess that you use richfaces 4.x. In this version of RF there is no modalPanel component anymore. It was replaced by popupPanel, which can behave like modalPanel (disables interaction with whole page, only panel is active).

           

          I have changed your code a little and tested it. After those changes popupPanel shows up.

           

           

                   <!-- AFTER opening ui:define -->
                      <!-- Modal Panel Wizard -->
                      <h:form id="wizardForm">
                          <rich:popupPanel id="wizard">
          
          
                              <f:facet name="header">New Picture</f:facet>
                              <f:facet name="controls">

                                      </ui:remove>

                                      <h:commandLink value="closeWizard">

            Andrey Markhel Newbie

            Hi, Chakradhar, I guess that you use jsf 1.2.

            First of all little theory:)

            When your page is initially rendered, the modal panel is not showed, it is ok. When you press on a4j:commandButton

            <a4j:commandButton
                                            onclick="Richfaces.showModalPanel('wizard',{width:300,height:200});"
                                            action="startWizard" value="AddPicture" reRender="wizardForm" />

             

             

            Richfaces.showModalPanel('wizard',{width:300,height:200}); code is executed .  It is just javaScript call to show modal panel and modalPanel is showed. But, a4j:commandButton is ajax component that performs call to server, and rerender "wizardForm", so new portion of html is returned and replaced by browser, so modalPanel that showed earlier replaced by new(returned form server), so you think that modalPanel hided.

            For prevent this you have 2 possibilities:

            1. If data in modalPanel not depend on ajax request submitted by your a4j:commandButton you can just remove reRender="wizardForm" from declaration of a4j:commandButton

            2. If data in modalPanel  depend on ajax request submitted by your a4j:commandButton(for example smth changed in actionListener method) you can do next:

            <a4j:form id="wizardForm">
                        <rich:modalPanel showWhenRendered="#{backingBean.isPopupShowed}" id="wizard">

             

                            <f:facet name="header">New Picture</f:facet>
                            <f:facet name="controls">
                                <h:panelGrid>
                                    <a4j:commandButton value="Close" action="closeWizard"
                                        onclick="Richfaces.hideModalPanel('wizard');" />
                                </h:panelGrid>
                            </f:facet>
                                   
                                             this is workspace
                    </rich:modalPanel>
                    </a4j:form>

            showWhenRendered attribbute take care about is modalPanel rendered after initial or subsequent ajax requests. You can map this property on any of your JSF backing bean. So after initial page load modalPanel will not rendered if showWhenRendered=false, then when you click on commandButton you can change(for example in actionListener) in backing bean this property to true, so after ajax request modalPanel will be showed.

              Andrey Markhel Newbie

              And you have 3 choice: replace your onclick attribbute by oncomplete. I'll manually tested code and it's work like a charm^)
