    rich:popupPanel data not submitted to the server

    Flavio Palumbo Newbie

      Hi all,

       

      I'm trying to migrate a working project from rf 3.3.3 to rf 4.0 under tomcat 6.0.26.

      In the previous project I had an extendedDataTable with modalPanel to make CRUD operations on a simple DB table ... those worked great.

      Now I'm migrating to rf 4.0, same DB table, migrate extendedDataTable ok, migrate modalPanel to popupPanel no way to make it work :-(( ;

      the backing bean is the same, but when I click the a4j:commandLink to submit the data to the server it seems that the data are not filled in the backing bean's fields. I tried to look at the rf4 showcase, particularly to the dataTable edit example (is quite the same I need to do) ; first of all I cut the form inside the modalPanel, than I add an execute="popupPanelID" to the a4j:commandLink and last I move the popupPanel inside the main form, where is the extendedDataTable ; no way to get data refreshed inside the bean.

      Can somebody help me ?

      Below is the code.

          Christian Peter Expert

          you could try this:

           

          first file:

          ...

          </h:form>

          <ui:include src="/tables/eSSoc/ESSocDelete.xhtml"/>

          <ui:include src="/tables/eSSoc/ESSocEdit.xhtml"/>

          </ui:composition>

           

           

          second file:

           

          <rich:popupPanel id="ESSocEditPanel" autosized="false" keepVisualState="false">

          ...

          </f:facet>

          <h:form id="ESSocEditPanelForm">

          <h:panelGroup layout="block" styleClass="scrolls">

          <a4j:outputPanel id="ESSocTableMod" >

          ...

          </h:form>

          </rich:popupPanel>

            Hi Christian,

             

            restoring <h:form> and </h:form> in the second file makes the action on the a4j:commandLink not triggered ; I cannot figure out why, but the backing bean doesn't receive the control.

             

            Thanks a lot

              I discovered that the second popupPanel included in the page (ESSocDelete.xhtml) is working perfectly. What I'm not able to figure out is why, being quite equals on the main tags, when I push the commandLink that confirms the action, one (ESSocDelete.xhtml) works fine while the second (ESSocEdit.xhtml) doesn't return control to backing bean.

              Can somebody help me ?

              Below is the code

                have you tried to set the required="true" inputText elements to :required="false"?

                  Just tried but it doesn't change

                    Hmmm, instead of rerendering the whole popup, like:

                    <a4j:commandLink render="ESSocEditPanel" ...

                     

                     

                    You have to give the form inside a popuppanel an id:

                    EDIT-Popup:

                       <h:form id="ESSocForm">

                                <h:panelGroup layout="block" styleClass="scrolls">

                                    <a4j:outputPanel id="ESSocTableMod" >

                     

                    and then rerender only the contents of the popup panel:

                     

                    <a4j:commandLink render="ESSocForm:ESSocTableMod"

                    execute="@this" action="#{eSSoc.editSetup}"  oncomplete="#{rich:component('ESSocEditPanel')}.show()" >

                      Well thanks Christian, now it works.

                       

                      Thanks also to the post at http://community.jboss.org/thread/174595?tstart=30 I did the trick.

                       

                      For me the main point has been wrap the popupPanel with the form while previously I did viceversa.

                       

                      Now it would be very fine to figure out why in rf 3.3.3 is not mandatory wrap a modalPanel with a form while in rf 4 popupPanel needs this.

                       

                      Thanks for any advice.
