                I think you need to set a bean property from a <rich:editor valueChangeListener to indicate that the content has

                changed (TBH I've never used it, so this is guess work...). You should be able to get the content from the

                ValueChangeEvent parameter to the value change listener using getNewValue().

                  hello munna,

                  try using this :

                  <rich:editor value="#{richBean.contents}">

                     <a4j:ajax event="change"/><!-- to save the value after previous focus-->

                     <a4j:ajax event="dirty"><!-- to save the value whenever user enters text-->

                      <a4j:attachQueue requestDelay="5000" ignoreDupResponses="true" /><!-- to prevent firing too much requests -->

                      have you tried an <a4j:support event="onchange" ... ?



                      To detect the unload event of the current page, you'll have to add an eventlistener to the "onbeforeunload" event. But this one is quite tricky.

                        <rich:editor id="test" value="{user.data}" autoResize="true" width="250" height="100" theme="advanced" plugins="fullscreen" required="false">

                        <f:param name="theme_advanced_buttons1"

                                                                                                                                                                                                             value="undo,redo,removeformat,|,formatselect,styleselect,bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,|,bullist,numlist,insertdate,inserttime,hr,outdent,indent," />

                                                                                                                                                                                        <f:param name="theme_advanced_buttons2" value="" />

                                                                                                                                                                                        <f:param name="theme_advanced_buttons3" value="" />

                                                                                                                                                                                        <f:param name="theme_advanced_toolbar_location" value="top" />

                                                                                                                                                                                        <f:param name="theme_advanced_toolbar_align" value="left" />


                        <a4j:support  immediate="true" event="onkeyup" reRender="outputEnteredText" />



                        <h:outputText id="outputEnteredText" value="Entered is:  #{user.data}" />


                        i tried with onchange, onkeypress, onkeyup nothing worked, it will display the data when the page is refreshed but not during the event triggered.

                          in my experience the onchange event of the RichEditor (RF3.3.3) is fired upon leaving the editor like clicking on the page elsewhere.


                          Are you using the editor in a modal panel or just in your page?


                          you should remove the "immediate="true"" from the a4j:support

                            i did removed immeidate = 'true' and i am not using it in modal panel. it feels like nothing is happening no event is fired at all.
