    Modify User Input Client Side Before Submitting

    Tim Lawson Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm attempting to determine if RichFaces can serve the needs of a project I'm working on and I'm hoping someone here might know if what I want to do is possible. Basically what I need is the ability to encode user input before it's sent to the server.

      So for example, let's say I want to update my backing bean on every keypress in a textarea. Is there a way I can grab the value, modify it, and have it sent to the server without also showing the modifications in the UI (subsequent decoding will be done on the server so whatever the user entered will be saved exactly as it was entered in the UI)?
