    Datatable Binding Affecting Display upon Navigaion

    Matthew Fischer Newbie

      I have a <t:dataTable> that is bound to rows data and <t:columns> bound to column data (I did it this way to allow for dynamic columns - in this case 3x3). I have a navigation rule from page 1 to page 2. The datatable's on each page bind to the same backing bean property.

      Page 1 is displaying links, when clicked go to Page 2. The problem is the data displayed on Page 1 is ALSO being displayed on Page 2 in addition to the page 2 data. I simplified the code to not retrieve any data from the backing bean...simply outputting an X link on Page 1 and Y on Page 2.

      So Page 1 displays:
      X X X
      X X X
      X X X

      and Page 2 displays:
      YX YX YX
      YX YX YX
      YX YX YX

      I also had to put an id tag on Page 2 t:outputText. Page 2 should obviously only display Y.

      Any thoughts?

      Here's the code:
