    1 suggestionbox pointed to multiple inputfields

    Jordi Teterissa Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but i don't know how to get the following to work:

      I succesfully created a suggestionbox which points to the ID of a certain inputfield. What i've got now is that the user fills in his studentnumber in the inputfield, the suggestion box gives suggestion (3 columns: studentnumber, name and class). When the user chooses from the suggestionbox, the studentnumber appears in the inputfield.

      Now what I want is that name and class appear in 2 different inputfields with different IDs ofcourse (those 2 inputfields shouldnt be editable by the user btw).

      I searched on these forums, google and the richfaces dev-guide, but i just cannot find it.

      i really would appreciate some help!

          Hmm...I'm now trying to do it via Javascript..but I cannot get that to work either. There must be a way to do this just with the suggestionbox component right?....

            Hi.

            Did you solve your problem with filling multiple inputfields with help of a suggestionbox?

            If not, I could send you some code snippets per email, that work for me.

            I also have a problem with suggestionbox on my own - I try to use multiple boxes on one page. But I only get suggestions for the first box, that I click into...
