I've got a selectOneMenu that contains a list of categories. There is an OK button that when pressed, submits the form which updates a parentCatId property to whatever is selected in the selectOneMenu.

I also have a dataTable that contains a list of subCategories for the selected category.

Problem: When the page is loaded and the list is populated with default subCategories, I click on one of the subCategories in the dataTable (commandLink) and display the details of said subCategory on the right side of the page. This works until....

I choose a different parentCategory from the selectOneMenu. The dataTable is populated with the new subCategories but when I click on a subCategory I still get the old details. There is a UIData property bound to the dataTable. I think that possibly, when I click the OK button, this model is not getting updated with the new list of subCategories.

Has anyone experienced this and/or know of a way to solve this?

Thanks.

I added preserveDataModel="true" to my dataTable and it appears to be working, for now.
