    custom status message

    Roman Mandeleil Newbie

      Hi ,


      I got a very strange behavior with status message.
      I am sending the status message by...






      statusMessages.addToControl("userName", Severity.ERROR, 
                                 "User with that name already exist");
      




      and my view is like that:





              <seam:decorate id="userNameField" template="/decorate-template/form-field.xhtml">
                <ui:define name="label">User Name:</ui:define>
                <h:inputText id="userName" required="true" value="#{loginDataForm.username}"  maxlength="16">
                  <a4j:support event="onblur" reRender="userNameField" ajaxSingle="true"/>
                </h:inputText>
              </seam:decorate>
      





      The only messages I see is the messages sent by hibernate validators (NotEmpty, Length etc... ) but the messages I add in the custom was like first
      code block doesn't shown.

          Hi


          possibly  I am missing something, but you should use the class FacesMessages which is a subclass of StatusMessages. Maybe you've made your own custom class an didn't conigure it correctly ?

            • Tried it also, unfortunately I got the same behavior.




            I see two more symptoms:


            1) If I add the rich:message element for the input also, it goes like that:
            when hibernate validation fails I see two messages, but if the custom validation
            fails I see only one message.


            2)The custom validation doesn't activates the field decorator, the field and the label
            text stay black.

              have you tried a simple add of fecaesMessages  and does that work?

                  Roman,


                  send some additional code, because we need to see how you custom validator is made, configured and used.

                    Leo,


                    I am using very straight forward code, an EAR file that contains a WAR and an EJB jar.
                    I have the the JSF that tries to submit a new user:




                    part of register.xhtml:


                    <seam:decorate id="userNameField" template="/decorate-template/form-field.xhtml">
                              <ui:define name="label">User Name:</ui:define>
                              <h:inputText id="userName" required="true" value="#{loginDataForm.username}"  maxlength="16">
                                <a4j:support event="onblur" reRender="userNameField" ajaxSingle="true"/>
                              </h:inputText>
                            </seam:decorate>
                    




                    form-field.xhtml:



                    <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
                         xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"

                              <s:label styleClass="name #{invalid?'errors':''}">
                                   <s:span styleClass="required" rendered="#{required}">*</s:span>
                                   <ui:insert name="label" />
                              </s:label> 
                              
                              <span class="value #{invalid?'errors':''}">
                              
                                   <s:validateAll>
                                        
                                             <ui:insert />
                                   </s:validateAll>
                         
                              </span> 
                              
                              <span class="error">
                                   <h:graphicImage value="/img/error.gif"
                                   rendered="#{invalid}" styleClass="errors" />
                         
                                   <s:message id="message"     styleClass="errors" />
                              </span>
                         </div>
                    </ui:composition>





                    part of RegistrationManagerImpl SLSB:




                              try {
                                   entityManager.createQuery(
                                             "select u from User u where " + "u.username='" + loginDataForm.getUsername() + "'")
                                             .getSingleResult();
                    
                                   statusMessages.addToControl("userName", Severity.ERROR, "User with that name already exist");
                                   return;
                    
                              } catch (NoResultException e) {
                                   // The user can be registered
                              }
                    
                    




                    form that gets the data from the JSF and injects into the SLSB:




                    @Name("loginDataForm")
                    public class LoginDataForm {
                         
                        @NotEmpty
                        @Length(min=3,max=16)
                         private String username;
                    
                        @NotEmpty
                        @Length(min=3,max=10)
                        private String password;
                         
                        private String passwordConfirm;
                         
                         public String getUsername() {

                         }
                    
                         public String getPassword() {
                              return password;

                         }
                    
                         public String getPasswordConfirm() {
                              return passwordConfirm;
                         }
                         public void setPasswordConfirm(String passwordConfirm) {
                              this.passwordConfirm = passwordConfirm;
                         }
                         
                         public boolean passwordConfirmed(){
                              if (password == null) return false;
                              if (passwordConfirm == null) return false;
                              
                              return this.password.equals(passwordConfirm);
                         }
                         
                         
                    }
                    
                    
                    
                    





                    I am using Seam 2.1.2 and Rich Faces 3.3.2, I hope it is
                    clear enough, if not I'll try to work out a sample.


                    Thanks in advance.

                      It seems that it can't find the specific JSF-control to ad it to. Some possible hints:


                      - Look in the HTML-source code if the specific id exists,
                      - Try this out without the form-field.xhtml template,
                      - Create a separate fixed JSF-Control without any templates, and use the specific Id on it.

                      P.S. My weekend just started, so it can take some more time to reply.
