    Newbie question

    Fred Lamuette Newbie

      Hi all,
      I hope you could help me because there is something trivial I cant do.

      <h:form>
      ...
      <s:decorate id="code_decorator" template="/layout/edit2.xhtml">
      <ui:define name="label">Code</ui:define>
      <h:inputText id="code" value="#{myAction.code}" required="true" >
      <a:support event="onchange" actionListener="#{myAction.queryCode}" reRender="address" ajaxSingle="true" eventsQueue="form"/>
      <a:support event="onblur" reRender="code_decorator" ajaxSingle="true" limitToList="true" eventsQueue="form"/>
      ...
      <h:inputText id="address" value="#{myAction.address}" required="true" size="22" maxlength="20" />
      ...
      </h:form>
      

      When I change the value of the field 'code', then press tab, nothing appears for my input text 'address'.
      What is the solution?
      Thank you.

          Are you sure that s:decorate has representation in DOM when no errors exist.. try to surround your update area with a4j:outputPanel and update it.

            Actually the complete code is
            <h:form>
            ...
            <s:decorate id="code_decorator" template="/layout/edit2.xhtml">
            <ui:define name="label">Code</ui:define>
            <h:inputText id="code" value="#{myAction.code}" required="true" >
            <a:support event="onchange" actionListener="#{myAction.queryCode}" reRender="address" ajaxSingle="true" eventsQueue="form"/>
            <a:support event="onblur" reRender="code_decorator" ajaxSingle="true" limitToList="true" eventsQueue="form"/>
            </h:inputText>
            </s:decorate>
            ...
            <h:inputText id="address" value="#{myAction.address}" required="true" size="22" maxlength="20" />
            ...
            </h:form>
            


            The method queryCode is well runned with the onchange event, in this method we change the 'adress' attribute (myAction.address), and expect it well rendered in the the inputText id='address'. That's not the case.
            Have you any ideas?

              I tried to wrap my input text id='address' in a <a:outputpanel id="panel_address' and change the reRender to 'panel_address'. No success.
              I also want to add that after changing the value of my source input text, nothing appears but simply refreshing the page DOES the expected result !

                Try to remove ajaxSingle attribute from support components - will it work in that case.

                  Hi maksim,
                  I tried to remove ajaxSingle="true" with with no success. I have checked that no validation errors appear in order to execute the listener action.
                  Please can you explain me that when I set the destination input text as disabled, it works like a charm ? :

                  <h:inputText id="address" value="#{myAction.address}" required="true" size="22" maxlength="20" disabled="true"/>
                  


                  I dont know very well JSF, but is it possible that when a submitted value is stored in the input text component in the apply request values phase, this component doesn't refresh with the model data in the render phase?

                  Thank you for your support.
