    TabPanel internationalization.

    mpula Newbie

      I have multilingual web application. On the view where is rich:tabPanel first tab has correct messages (according to language set up in browser), but other tabs always has messages in default language. When I change tab order (another one tab is now first tab) situation repeats, only first tab has correct messages. Does anybody had similar problem? Any ideas what can be wrong?

          you loading some properties with loadBundle? then use a4j: one instead of f: one tag.


          if not the case - show the code.

            I have already done workaround for this problem. But I am curious why previous version did not work.


            Description of the problem.

            Some page (jsf + faceletes):

            <a4j:form style="clear:both">                  
                        <rich:tabPanel headerAlignment="right" switchType="ajax">
                            <rich:tab label="#{msgs.label1}"
                                <ui:include  src="./somePage.xhtml">                        
                            <rich:tab label="#{msgs.label2}"
                                <ui:include src="./somePage2.xhtml">                        

            On somePage.xhtml and somePage2.xhtml I have a few rich:comboBox components. For this combobox I have converter:


            public class PrepaidTypeConverter implements Converter {
                private static final MessagesBundleManager msgs = MessagesBundleManager.getInstance(); //loads messages from bundle    
                private String ALL_ITEMS_LABEL = msgs.getMessage("combo_box_all");
                public Object getAsObject(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, String value) {
                    //some code
                public String getAsString(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, Object value) {
                    if ((value != null) && (value instanceof SomeType)) {
                        SomeType object = (SomeType) value;
                        String key = object.getName();
                        return msgs.getMessage(key);
                    return ALL_ITEMS_LABEL;

            Now the problem is only when comboBox has not have a selected value. Private field ALL_ITEMS_LABEL have correct value only for first tab in tabPanel. When I change tab to other panel ALL_ITEMS_LABEL have value read from default bundle.

            When I change tabPanel switchType to client then is OK. But to have still ajax switchType I remember locale in some session bean wher user logs on. And modify converter:


            private SessionBean sessionBean = (SessionBean) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().getSessionMap().get("sessionBean");
            private String ALL_ITEMS_LABEL = msgs.getMessage("combo_box_all", sessionBean.getLocale());


            Could someone tell me why ALL_ITEMS_LABEL on other tabPanel than first is always in default language (in my first solution)?
