    Entity Search and Select

    Cody Lerum Apprentice

      I'm having a little bit of issue fitting the widgets together on this problem.


      I have an Entity(TelephoneNumber) which I'm creating and I need associate 3 other existing entites on the creation page.


      What I have so far is. Below. However I'm getting an


      22:48:55,353 WARN  [lifecycle] For input string: "BLNGMT - Billings, MT"
      java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "BLNGMT - Billings, MT"


      It's passing the value of the suggestionBox rather than the entity. What is the correct way to do this? Can anyone post some sample code as I think this must be pretty common.


      <s:decorate template="/layout/edit.xhtml">
           <ui:define name="label">Site</ui:define>
           <h:inputText value="#{telephoneNumber.site}" id="site" size="75" required="false" label="#{telephoneNumber.site.name}">
                <s:convertEntity />
           </h:inputText>     
                <rich:suggestionbox for="site" suggestionAction="#{siteUtil.searchSites}"  var="_site" minChars="2" id="suggestion" width="500" selfRendered="true">
                   <h:column>
                     <h:outputText value="#{_site.name} - #{_site.alias}" />
                </h:column>
                </rich:suggestionbox> 
      </s:decorate>
      
      



      @Entity
      @Name("telephoneNumber")
      @Table(name="telephone_number")
      public class TelephoneNumber implements Serializable {

          OK-


          This is what I ended up going with.


          <s:decorate template="/layout/edit.xhtml">
             <ui:define name="label">Site</ui:define>
                <h:inputText id="site" size="75" required="false" />
                <rich:suggestionbox for="site" suggestionAction="#{siteUtil.searchSites}" var="_site" minChars="2" id="suggestion" width="500">
                   <h:column>
                   <h:outputText value="#{_site.name} - #{_site.alias}" />                                                                      
                </h:column>
                 <a:support ajaxSingle="true" event="onselect">
                    <f:setPropertyActionListener value="#{_site}" target="#{telephoneNumber.site}" />                              
                   </a:support>
                </rich:suggestionbox> 
          </s:decorate>       
          



          Not sure if it's right, but it seems to work.
