I thought it's going to be an easy one... Perhaps I made it hard with my explanations. Let's try over again:
How to make rich:calendar setting selected date in backing bean after clicking on given date (without apply button)?
I dont know if you found out a solution for the issue you had with the rich:calendar ad its been a while. Was trying to implement something similar but doesnt seem to be working.
Also noticed no one ever replied to this issue.
While to sum up and Wrap on what I was trying to achieve:
Have a rich:calendar in jsf that has a small calendar icon on its side. When the user clicks a date from the cal. I want to get that with no action on clicks of button/hyperlinks etc. Get the date and populate a expired date ( add 10 days to it) which is the next field to the selected date.
Any suggestions ASAP shall be appreciated else have to think other wise and change the design.
