Subject RE: autoSubmit + immediate + validations
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 21:44:19 GMT
It looks related but not quite the same thing. I'm also seeing where an
action method isn't fired and then I have to hit it a second time, but
it doesn't only happen when leaving an autoSubmit field. It happens on
any field as long as (1) there are validation errors and (2) autoSubmit
happened somewhere on the page.

It's as if the autoSubmit detects a bunch of validation errors but
doesn't display them or force me to fix them, but then when I try to
navigate away, BOOM I have to fix all these issues even though immediate
is set to true.

Daniel,

Hey, I did see it, but I'm currently plowed under at work.
This might be:
 http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ADFFACES-24
... which desparately needs some attention.
