    a4j:support reRendering components in a different form?

    Brian Smith Apprentice

      Is it possible to rerender a component that resides in a different h:form?

      I have tried

      reRender="formName:componentName"

      but get an illegalArgumentException

      ex

      <h:form id="form1">
       <h:selectOneMenu id="requestType_input" value="#{serviceRequest.requestType}">
       <s:selectItems var="type"
       label="#{type.requestTypeDescription}"
       value="#{allRequestTypes.resultList}"/>
       <s:convertEntity/>
       <a4j:support event="onchange" reRender="requestDetail_Form:complaintType_select" ajaxSingle="true"/>
       </h:selectOneMenu>
      </h:form>
      
      <h:form id="requestDetail_Form">
       <h:selectOneMenu id="complaintType_select" value="#{sectionComplaintType}">
       <s:selectItems label="#{complaint.complaintTypeDescription}"
       value="#{serviceRequest.requestType.complaintTypeList}"
       var="complaint"/>
       <s:convertEntity/>
       </h:selectOneMenu>
      </h:form>
