    Pre select

    Leo - Newbie

      Hi!!
      I'm working with JBOSS SEAM 2.0.1.GA plus EJB 3.


      I'm a bit confusing with selectItems and converters.
      I have a page where I select one element from a combo (typical foreign key). So my xthml code is something like this:


      .............
      .............
      <h:selectOneMenu value="#{myBean.myBeanType}">
        <s:selectItems value="#{beanTypes.resultList}" var="type" 
                       label="#{type.name}" 
                       noSelectionLabel="Please Select..."/>
          <s:convertEntity />
      </h:selectOneMenu>
      .............
      .............
      



      This combo is used to filter the results of a search, so I need to maintain selected the correct value after submit and filtered search. So I have one page param:




      <param name="type" value="#{myBean.myBeanType}"/>




      But nothing is preselected. I think the problem is the need of converter in param, but I don´t know what I have to use. Cconverter or converterId? whats the difference? and what value I need to put in these attributes


      Thanks in advance
