    Why my action located within a rich:modalPanel is not executed

    Nicolas Carron Newbie

      I try to implement a modal panel to let the user confirm the deletion of some entities without successful.

      Is here the code :

      1) the command I use to do some staff before entities deletion and to show the modal on completion :

           <a4j:commandButton value="a4j:commandButton"  action="#{contractDeletor.prepareJob}"
                reRender="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId" ajaxSingle="true"
                          oncomplete="Richfaces.showModalPanel('deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId',{width:400, top:200})" />                    
      <a4j:include viewId="/ContractDeletionModal.xhtml" rendered="true" />

      1) the code of the modal (simplified for understanding) :

      <rich:modalPanel id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelId"
           <div id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelDivId">
           <form id="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelForm">
                <a4j:commandButton value="a4j:commandButton"
                     reRender="deleteContractsConfirmModalPanelDivId" /></form>

      When I click on the command a post back is performed whitout executing the action ??

      3) the related action (simplified):

      public class ContractDeletor extends BaseListAnimator implements
                Serializable {
           private static final long serialVersionUID = -1465053605583307302L;
           public String prepareJob() {
                log.info("Prepare the job");
                return null;
           public String doJob() {
                log.info("Do the job");
                return null;

      I also tried to put the modal within the same page of the command that show it but it has the same effect.
      I probably miss something but I can figure it out.

      Many thanks in advance
