    Validation of s:fileUpload

    Jonas Buechel Novice

      I'd like to validate data of the s:fileUpload component.

      Considering this topic i found this
      post on the old forum. Reading the post and the issue details I don't quite understand if it's currently possible to validate such a field (and how) or not.

      I'd expect something as the following:

      <s:fileUpload data="#{fwcInputProperty}" fileName="#{fwcInputFileName}" contentType="#{fwcInputContentType}">
           <f:validator validatorId="catalogTemplateValidator" />
           <s:validate />

      Is something like this possible?

      Thanks for any information!

          :-) Of course i did try it before i wrote the post.
          After your reply I tried it again though, unfortunately without success. The (reduced) code:

               <s:decorate template="#{theme.inputTextHorizontal}">
                    <ui:param name="fwcLabelMessageKey" value="catalogTemplate_label_name" />
                    <ui:param name="fwcInputProperty" value="#{catalogTemplateSelection.name}" />
                    <ui:param name="fwcInputRequired" value="true" />
                    <ui:define name="fwcInputValidator">
                         <f:validator validatorId="com.frox.aafn.action.validator.catalogTemplateValidator" />
                         <s:validate />
               <s:fileUpload data="#{catalogTemplateSelection.file}" fileName="#{catalogTemplateSelection.fileName}">
                    <f:validator validatorId="catalogTemplateValidator" />
                    <s:validate />
          <h:commandButton value="#{messages['controls_save']}"
               action="#{catalogTemplateAction.persistCatalogTemplate}" />

          The validate(FacesContext, UIComponent, Object) method is just not beeing called.

          I'd be happy if you could tell me what I'm doing wrong?

            Are there any plans to make this work at some point ? As of now, it's impossible to use required or validator attributes
            for the s:fileUpload tag. Does anybody use this component in a real life application, and was able to find a satisfying
            workaround ?

            I'm ok with the team rejecting the proposed patch, but imho, the issue is far from closed, even on the 2.2.1.CR2 version,
            the one I use presently.
