    Richfaces 4.0 autocomplete

    Vadivel Kuppusamy Newbie

      Hi All,


           i am using jsf 2.0 and richfaces 4.0.

           i have issue on richfaces 4.0 autocomplete.


           step1: click on the submit button without enter any input fields. it will show the error message. pls see the image1


           step2: then focus on autocomplete field type any character, it will show the list. But that time all the error

      message will be hide. pls see the image2


      i dont want to hide all the error message.


      i am using below code:




                                                  id="test"  value="#{testBean.company}"



                                                  var="company" mode="ajax" minChars="1" // here i tried with mode="ajax" and mode="cachedAjax"

                                                            <h:outputText value="#{company.label}" />




           my guess :  both(mode="ajax" and mode="cachedAjax") condition jsf construct the tree, due to ajax call so that all the error message will be hide for all the input fields.


      i used mode="client" for this case error message will not be hide. but it wil show the company list without enter any character, i dont want to display all company without enter any  character.


      pls, help me..

          Hi All,


          here i will explain the above issue clearly


              step1:  When I click on submit button with empty fields, validation is working (which ever field is required). pls see the image1


               step2:  Then type on the company field, all the error message will be disappear (company field is <rich:autocomplete>).

          pls see the image2


          I want all the error message should be appear, (when I type on the company field).


          I used <a4j:regin>. but i didnt get anything.
