Subject Re: [Tobago] Ajax Frameworks With Tobago.
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 10:20:50 GMT
Hi Varma,

i have no experience with 'thirdparty AJAX frameworks', but i don't
think they work with tobago.

But you can do this with the tobago internal ajax partial reload feature.

put the second tc:selectOneChoice into a tc:panel with defined
clientId ( this means you set a id to this panel and to all
surrounding namingContainer components).

add a 'change' facet to the first tc:selectOneChoice with a action to
change the options for the second one, and a renderedPartially
attribute to update.

--- jsf ------------------------
<tc:page id="page">
<tc:selectOneChoice ...>
  <f:selectItems .../>
  <f:facet name="change">
    <tc:command action="#{bean.selectOptions}">
      <tc:attribute name="renderedPartially" value=":page:panel"/>

<tc:panel id="panel">
  <tc:selectOneChoice ...>
    <f:selectItems value="#{bean.items2}"/>
--- /jsf ------------------------

the action method "public String selectOptions() {...}" should update the
selectItems in items2 property.
And MUST return null, because you don't want to navigate to anohter view.
