    RF 4 a4j:ajax not firing on CDI bean?

    Karsten Wutzke Expert

      Hello,

       

      I have a CDI filter bean:

       

      {code}@Named

      @RequestScoped

      public class ProjectListFilter

      {

          private String shorthandSearchInput = "";   

         

          public void setShorthandSearchInput(String shorthandSearchInput)

          {

              this.shorthandSearchInput = shorthandSearchInput;

          }

       

          public String getShorthandSearchInput()

          {

              return shorthandSearchInput;

          }   

      }{code}

       

      The I have a rich:dataTable with a column in which I'd like to filter shorthands (name abbreviations):

       

      {code}

      <rich:column filterExpression="#{fn:containsIgnoreCase(pkurz.prjLeiterKurz, projectListFilter.shorthandSearchInput)}" filterEvent="onkeyup">

        <f:facet name="header">

          <h:panelGroup>

            <h:outputText value="Projektleiter" />

            <br />

            <h:inputText value="#{projectListFilter.shorthandSearchInput}" id="shorthand-input">

              <f:ajax event="keyup" render="project-list project-list-ds" oncomplete="setCaretToEnd(event);" />

            </h:inputText>

          </h:panelGroup>

        </f:facet>

        <h:outputText value="#{pkurz.prjLeiterKurz}" />

      </rich:column>

      {code}

       

      The interesting part is the line f:ajax. I currently use that as a4j:ajax doesn't seem to be doing anything at all. Is this a known issue? I can't see anything that could be wrong.

       

      Note, f:ajax doesn't have the oncomplete attribute, so the JS is never called by f:ajax, which would only be called by a4j:ajax if it would fire.

       

      Are there any known issues for why f:ajax basically works and why a4j:ajax doesn't fire? I'm using RF 4.0.0 Final...

       

      Thanks
