    Drop Down Menu problems?

    Patrick Madden Newbie

      Hi I can't seem to get the menu's to work. Maybe they are just not yet prime time? I have the latest axaj4jsf, richfaces and seam from CVS and am using JBoss4.2.0.CR2. However, I had the same problem a while back on 4.0.5.GA (maybe 2 weeks ago?). Its the first time I've tried since then.

      I wrote my own menu bean but kept getting exceptions so I thought maybe I'll just stick the bean from the Rich Faces example code into my code and try that. For both beans it never seems to be able to find the actionListener and/or the action method.

      I added the managed bean to faces-config.xml as follows:

       <managed-bean>
       <managed-bean-name>bean</managed-bean-name>
       <managed-bean-class>org.richfaces.samples.dropdownmenu.Bean</managed-bean-class>
       <managed-bean-scope>session</managed-bean-scope>
       </managed-bean>
      



      Here is the bean code and below that is the exception:

      Here is the xhtml code:

       <h:panelGrid id="menugrid" columns="1" cellspacing="4">
       <ddm:dropDownMenu event="#{bean.event}"
       id="DocumentTreeMenuID"

      Any help is greatly appreciated.
