    a4j:support onChange reRender is performed before attributes are set

      Hi There,

       

      I have a form containing a <h:selectOneListbox /> with an attached <a4j:support ajaxSingle="true" event="onchange" reRender="someOtherDiv" />

       

      The problem:

       

      I need to set ajaxSingle="true" because someOtherDiv contains a required textfield and the selectOneListbox's onChange event needs to be triggered even when validation of that textfield fails.

       

      I also need to set immediate="true" on the selectOneListbox as well as on the required textfield.

       

      As long as ajaxSingle="true", the reRender is performed before the value of the selectOneListbox is set in the backing UI bean. I have verified this using some breakpoints: the selectOneListbox's setter is called after the other fields's getters.

       

      This is not what I think it should be. I think the reRender should always occur as last operation during event handling.

       

      Or am I doing something wrong ?

      Or is there a trick go get around this ?

       

      Unfortunately, my project is a legacy project I have taken over shortly. Therefore I am stuck on version 3.1.6 GA.

       

      Thanks and Regards,

      Markus
