I'm using the following code to display some drop down lists based on condition , it's working fine when creating a document but when trying to modify the documents , the select doesn't change i keep getting the first value . I'm using Nuxeo 7.10 Here is the code i'm using :

<div xmlns=""

<h:form >

     <h:selectOneMenu id="thekeywords" value="#{field}">
        <f:selectItem itemLabel="Sélectionner une valeur" />

In the console i'm getting those errors :

Here is the code i'm using to display the select widget :

<widget name="rubrique" type="template">
          <label mode="any">


        <fields >
        <properties mode="any">
          <property name="template">

Have you tried to display the values of field and field_1? Maybe their value or their type isn't right.

Hi Greg Drayon my code is working well when creating a document , i mean the second select change based on first select value, but when i have to edit a document , the second select doesn't change.

Yes. But have you tried to display #{field_1}" and #{field}" in your page in creation AND in edition?

Greg Drayon Yes they are displayed, i've added the code i'm using in layout to display the select widgets. I think that there is a conflict between my code and the edit one

You should try to display them directly, without an h:outputLabel, or without the rendered condition. Thus, you could see their value, not "a message displayed if they have a given value". Because maybe the field isn't saved when you create your document. If so, #{field} is null, and nothing can be displayed in your edition form. If nothing is saved, maybe it comes from the creation form, not the edition one.

Thank you Greg Drayon , h:outputLabel is just a label it has no effect on select widget, the field is saved i can see it on summary and it is searchable. Can you tell me more about how i could dispaly the second select without condition ?

I would first check the class of the field value (#{field.class} and #{field_1.class}). Then, as it should be a String, according to your example, and if it has one of the values you want it to have (either "Techniques de l’entreprise", "Développement du dirigeant", "Environnement de l’entreprise" or "Management"), I would then try the "eq" operator in my EL instead of "==". No sure it would solve your problem, but maybe worth it.

Greg Drayon I've read in the following link that "==" and "eq" operator are the same , also as i said i've no problem with this while creating a new document so i don't think that this is the problem. I'm not too good on Javascript but i think it has something to do with some JS code i've noticed that in creation useCapture is set to "true" and in Edit it is set to "false" .

If it is, then if you don't see you dropdown list in your page, you should check the page code source (CRTL + U, if you use Firefox). As the rendition of the page code source is calculated server side, you should appear inside, even if the displayed page itself doesn't show the drop down list. If it doesn't appear in the page code source, then JS is not involved. One again, I would check in the page itself the values and class of field and field_1. Not through a summary layout or any other page, but from the edition form itself. But that's just me.

Greg Drayon I just want to mention that the dropdown list is displayed but the problem is that it's values don't change when changing the value of the first dropdown list

OK, I clearly missed the hint. So you want the 2nd dropdown list to change when you change the value of the 1st one, without reloading the page nor saving the document? Like with some Ajax process?

Greg Drayon Yes i want the second dropdown list to change it's values when changing the value of the first one, with the code above it . refresh the second dropdown list but only when creating a document for the first time. In edit tab both dropdown lists are displayed

Got it. Yes, it won't do. When you create the document, the "field_1" has no value. Whe you save, the value is registered and you can see the second drop down list in the edition form because it is calculated to be displayed server side. I guess if you set a news value in the first drop down list, then save, then try to edit again, the second drop down list if correctly updated? If so, it's because the new value is not sent to the server before your sabing, and the page is not recalculated. You should check this page to bind two widgets.

Greg Drayon if you set a new value in the first drop down list, then save, then try to edit again, the second drop down list if correctly updated? Yes it's true. I thought this could be done using Ajax …

It can. But there is no Ajax in your given code.

Can you try getting rid of the h:form tag? Seems you have two nested forms, since the edit layout is already surrounded by a h:form tag, and this could produce strange behaviors. The h:head tag should be removed too.

My bad, I hadn't seen the "f:ajax render="tables" /" part…

Thank you Greg Drayon and Anahide Tchertchian for your help i finally got it working

Can you please share what you had to change to make it working?

Anahide Tchertchian I've followed what you said , can you please move your comment to an answer

You should get rid of the h:form tag: it seems that you have two nested forms, since the edit layout is already surrounded by a h:form tag, and this could produce strange behaviors. The h:head tag should be removed too.
