    Richfaces calendar - Show only month and year

    Francesco Croci Newbie

      I tried the solution proposed by Ilya [here][1] but I have a couple of problems:

       

      - the pop up shows correctly the months and years only, but january and july are missing

      - the `oncurrentdateselected` has no effect, i.e the corresponding field in the bean is never set...

       

      Here is my code:

       

          ...

          <td>
            <rich:calendar
                 id="billPeriod"
                 value="#{adminModel.billPeriodForSAP}"
                 popup="false"
                 showWeekDaysBar="false"
                 showFooter="false"
                 styleClass="special"
                 datePattern= "MM-yyyy"
                 oncurrentdateselected="alert('month(year) select:'+event.rich.date.toString());"
                 locale="#{adminModel.locale}"/>
          </td>
      

          ...

       

      I replaced "event.rich.component.selectDate(event.rich.date)" with the alert to the oncurrentdateselected just to see if something happens, but no alert appears...

       

      I'm using richfaces 4.2.1

       

      Do I still miss something

      EDIT:

      I tried to remove the style, which removes/hides the day. If I select a day, than the value in the bean is correctly set. Is it so, that at least a day have to be selected?

          Can you try a recent RichFaces release?  I seem to remember a fix re: missing months.

           

          I just tried the oncurrentdateselected attribute of the calendar widget and can confirm it fires.  Do you see any errors in your console?  Can you provide a full source code sample that I can use to reproduce your use case?

            a little update:

             

            now I'm using richfaces 4.3.3, glassfish 3.1.2.2 and firefox 23 and I noticed the following behaviour:

            if the days table is not present, no event is fired. As soon as the table is there and you choose a day, the event is fired (at least handleEvent is called and the bean value is set,

            but still no alert pops up). But this happens only the first time you select a day and as long as you don't change the month, no other events are fired.

             

            Here an updated version of my code:

             

            <rich:calendar

              id="billPeriod"

              value="#{adminModel.billPeriodForSAP}"

              popup="false"

              showWeekDaysBar="false"

              showFooter="false"

              datePattern= "MM-yyyy"

              oncurrentdateselected="alert('Hello')"

              locale="#{adminModel.locale}">

              <a4j:ajax event="change" render="out" listener="#{adminModel.handleEvent}"/>

            </rich:calendar>

            <h:outputText id="out" value="... #{adminModel.billPeriodForSAP}"/>

              To be clear, you are asking for the following:

               

              1) oncurrentdateselected even should be fired when you select a month and the days table is not present

              2) when the days table is present, you expect the oncurrentdateselected event to be fired with every date click

               

              For 1), whould it make more snese to introduce a new event monthselected, rather than to override the existing event?

               

              Fir 2), should the oncurrentdateselected event not be fired until the apply button is clicked?  Try setting showApplyButton=false and see if you get the behaviour you expect.

                Hello,

                 

                actually I'm asking that the example proposed by Ilya (see above) would work as it is exactly what I need.

                So the 1) is what should happen.

                 

                But I don't understand if it's a thing I should do in my code (in this case I don't know how as I'm quite a rookie in such things) or if it's a thing that you should still implement...

                  I suspect this may have been resolved with RF-13102.  RichFaces 4.3.4 will be released shortly, we are just working through a RichFaces Push / Atmosphere failure on JBoss EAP 6.1.1.
