I spent a day with the same problem. The solution:
rerender -> reRender
That darn capital 'R'
thanks! But this seems not to be the only problem.
yes, capital R should solve the problem of just not working attribute.
And b.t.w. I can't get the idea of next sentense
Why is rerender="mainPanel" not get the request in the "Conversion and Validation" phase?
What I mean with the sentence in more detail:
- When I click the commandButton then the conversion of the input value works.
- When the conversion works then the request was in the "Conversion and Validation" JSF phase.
- With reRender the input value is not converted so the "Conversion and Validation" JSF phase seems not to be reached.
reRender could not influence on phases execution. or I'm still missing something in the case.
No, thats right. The problem seems to be that reRender does not work and I do not know why.
check for problems in a4j:log.
