I have written a custom time component that renders three textboxes for hours minutes and Am/Pm.
On click of a button on the screen, I have an ajax call to my backing bean where there is some business logic and the time value is being modified to another string. However the values on the screen are not being refreshed though I have re-render attribute.
I checked the HTML generated by the component and it does show the updated values but it doesnt reflect on the browser(IE). There are other text fields and slect boxes on the apge that get re-rendered with the updated values. Am I missing something with the custom component? Any pointers appreciated.
no, it is not about custom component. It is a core JSF problem.
Look at my explanation in http://jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=115007 thread.
You need to figure out how to clean up the previous local value if you want to update it from outside.
