    Richfaces 3.3.3 wizard not working properly in IE8

    anjann Newbie

      Hi all, I am tnew in this blog and started jsf developement a few days ago.


           I have developed a demo application a Customer Demographics Wizard in RichFaces3.3.3. Everything is running fine on GoogleChrome and Mozilla Firefox. But facing problem in running the same in IE8. In IE8 wizard's First page is displaying fine, but after clicking the next button while trying to navigate to the next page no form is displaying.


      IE8 is displaying error like this :

      User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) Timestamp: Tue, 11 Dec 2012 11:08:28 UTC

      Message: Unknown runtime error Line: 120 Char: 1 Code: 0 URI: http: //localhost:8400/BBGUServer/a4j/g/3_3_3.Finalorg.ajax4jsf.javascript.AjaxScript.jsf



      Pls see the attached code given below.


      Along with this the .java bean files I am not giving, because I dnt think those will be required.

      Here start.xhtml is the home page where custStep1.xhtml is loaded. After giving some value in the form when I navigate to the next page by clicking the button "Next" nothing of "custStep2" form is displaying. Only the parent forms drop downs (as you can see those i start.xhtml) are showing. And typically this special problem is occurring in IE8. Everything is running fine in Firefox/Chrome...........



      Any help/ solution is highly appreciated.


      Thanks in advance..

            The problem is partly solved by replacing <a4j:commandButton..> with <h:commandButton..> but in that case <rich:hotKey..> is not working fine.


               Note that in my 'cust-step1.xhtml' and 'cust-step2.xhtml'  there are buttons to navigate forms inside the wizard. The most strange thing is that when I replace the

          <a4j:commandButton> with <h:commandButton> the application is running fine and both the forms in the wizard are perfectly rendered in IE8 but the hot Keys are not working here. For my previously added codes which I mentioned running fine on Chrome and Firefox hot keys were also working fine. But now after changing <a4j:commandButton..> to <h:commandButton..> the application is running propery in all browsers IE8/Chrome/Firefox with no hot key functionality in any of them   When hot key is pressed the form just gets refreshed without performing the desired functionality.

          I think this is a bug of richface i.e <a4j:commandButton..> which needs to be fixed...................
