    RF4 PanelMenuItem (unselectable)

    Mario Baracu Newbie

      I need the panelMenu items can be clickable but not selected.

       

      I use the panelmenu for navigation. The problem arises when I click an item on the menu and the page have for example an empty inputText with "required = true" that prevents sending the event. Once filled the imputtext, the menuItem which I previously clicked is selected, so I need 2 click to continue: one to deselect and another to re-send the event, do not want to click twice.

       

      any help is greatly appreciated !

          What itemMode and groupMode are you using? The closest I can get to reproducing this is using "server" for both

          attributes (though still not doing what you describe) but it works ok with client and ajax.

           

          I had a similar problem with rich:tabPanel which was cured by using rich:tab immediate="true", you could try

          any mixture of immediate="true" on rich:panelMenu, rich:panelMenuGroup, rich:panelMenuItem.

           

          Regards,

          Brendan.

           

          p.s. it takes a lot of the guess work out of the equation if you post the code.
