    Why my action located within a rich:modalPanel is not executed

    Nicolas Carron Newbie

      I tried to implement a modal panel to let the user confirm the deletion of some entities without successful.


      H|ere is the code :


      1) the command I use to do some staff before entities deletion and to show the modal on completion :



          <a4j:commandButton value="a4j:commandButton"  action="#{contractDeletor.prepareJob}"

              reRender="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId" ajaxSingle="true"

                      oncomplete="Richfaces.showModalPanel('deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId',{width:400, top:200})" />               


      <a4j:include viewId="/ContractDeletionModal.xhtml" rendered="true" />


      1) the code of the modal (simplified for understanding) :


      <rich:modalPanel id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId"


          <div id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelDivId">

          <form id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelForm">

              <a4j:commandButton value="a4j:commandButton"



                  reRender="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelDivId" /></form>




      When I click on the command a post back is performed whitout executing the action ??


      3) the related action (simplified):



      public class ContractDeletor extends BaseListAnimator implements

              Serializable {


          private static final long serialVersionUID = -1465053605583307302L;


          public String prepareJob() {

              log.info("Prepare the job");


              return null;



          public String doJob() {

              log.info("Do the job");


              return null;




      I also tried to put the modal within the same page of the command that show it but it has the same effect. I probably miss something but I can figure it out.


      Many thanks in advance
