I want to fill different values from a database into the inputText component inside of a modal panel. To do that I have to call a backing bean method before the panel is displayed. I tried different methods and it could not be that difficult but I'm stuck somehow.
The problem is that the modal panel disappears if action method is called. If I use a4j:commandLink to display the modalPanel, call the method and rerender that special area the tabs in the modal panel does not work anymore...
Could someone please give me a hint.
ok solved it...
I use a hidden inputText with value binding and then call the method in the getter method from the edit page. More an jsf problem than one of richfaces or ajax4jsf.
