    h:selectBooleanCheckbox rerender problem

    Harald Höhn Newbie



      I have a problem with "h:selectBooleanCheckbox". After rerender of this element the value is always false. My checkbox is part of an complex dataform, and some components must be rerender other components for corect work. if any component trigger a rerender of a checkbox, this checkbox is always unselected.


      Here an example to reproduce the problem.


      <h:selectBooleanCheckbox id="check1_id" value="#{MyBean.check1}"/>

      <h:selectBooleanCheckbox id="check2_id" value="true"/>

      <a4j:commandButton id="Refresh_id1" value="Refresh1" reRender="check1_id"/>

      <a4j:commandButton id="Refresh_id2" value="Refresh2" reRender="check2_id"/>


      Each time you press one of the buttons the checkbox is always unselected. How can i keep a "selected" checkbox after rerender?
