or am i in the wrong section of the board?
as far as I know, "f:param" values cannot be found in the request parameters. This is a problem of the JSF implementation (JBoss >= 4.2 use the Sun RI 1.2), so you might better ask your question in JSF forums.
ok good to know, thank you!
By the way: if you need to access request parameters, I would advice you to place them in "h:inputHidden" fields, not in "f:param".
Another important thing to know: the name of the request parameter will contain all the IDs of its "container". So, in your situation, it will be "formid:test", not "test". If your form is in a table, the parameter name will be "tableid:rownumber:formid:test" and so on.
thanks for the follow up....
i was able to solve the problem.. had wrong infos on how to archive the desired goal..
if anyone has similar problems points out exactly the differences between a lot of different parameter handlings
anyway, thanks for your comment, wolfgang
