I have a CustomerInfo form with UI fields required=true and few command buttons. When clicking one of the command buttons I am calling backing bean method to create a pdf and to open it in a new window which is working fine. But when no values are entered in the required fields, it still opens a new window with CustomerInfo form re-rendered along with <h:messages> (required field messages).

I dont want to open a new window when there are validation errors.

I am using JSF 1.2 Facelets and RichFaces 3.3 in my project.

Thanks for your reply.

That was a good post which I already referred to generate the pdf. The solution I am trying to find out is how to skip opening the new window when there are validation errors.
