    Help with actionparam

    Y E Newbie

      Hello,
      I have to execute an action against a text field.
      My page contains the following:




      <s:decorate id="locField" template="layout/edit.xhtml">
          <ui:define name="label">Loc</ui:define>
          <h:inputText id="aLoc" value="#{alHome.instance.alLoc}">
              <a:support event="onblur" reRender="locField" bypassUpdates="true" ajaxSingle="true"/>
          </h:inputText>
          
          <a:commandButton value="Search" image="img/search.GIF" id="searchImg" action="#{locSearch.search}" >
               <a:actionparam name="aLoc" value="#{alHome.instance.alLoc}"   assignTo="#{locSearch.searchString}"/>         
          </a:commandButton>  
      </s:decorate>




      The problem I have is that in my locSearch bean the value assigned to searchString is null. If I put a literal as a value of the action param




      <a:actionparam name="aLoc" value="1234"   assignTo="#{locSearch.searchString}"/> 





      the value of searchString is set properly.


      Could someone please tell me what am I doing wrong and how do I pass the value of the text field aLoc to my action bean.


      Thank you.
