Hi,

I have a selectOneMenu where a user can pick what type of Person they are; Patient or Student. Depending on what they select a certain option is displayed... Patients can be smokers or non-smokers and Students can select their SchoolType (Highschool, College, etc). Can someone explain to me why when I use ajax the setter methods on my backing bean aren't being called. Ajax is rendering the correct options related to each Person depending on the current value in the select box. When I click the commandButton though, the values aren't being sent to the beans setters.

Thanks,
Alan

I'm not an expert on the JSF2 ajax tag, bug its equivalent for RichFaces has the option to post only the attached control value OR the entire form containing the control (including other control values). I seem to recall that the default using the JSF2 ajax tag may be only the attached control value. So check the attribute options on the ajax tag.
