Subject Re: ajax request and another cform in the same page
Date Mon, 14 May 2007 10:39:17 GMT
Hi Marc,

do I understand your problem correct, that you have two forms on your 
page? This can be a problem. Since having a deeper cook into JavaFlow I 
could see, that the form instance is bound to an AvalonContext with a 
fixed Name. This means, that one FormInstance should overwrite the other 
one. I don't exactyl know how this is implemented in FlowScript, but 
since Generators like the SuggestionListGenerator also looks for a 
hard-coded "CocoonFormsInstnce" object, I guess this is generally done 
that way.

Even if I know this doesn't help you solve the problem ... maybe it 
helps you find it.

Feel free to contact me. I will do my best to help you if you provide a 
little more detailed description of your problem / applicatoin setup /
