I am attempting to put an isolated form within the main form of my page. I found http://cwiki.apache.org/WICKET/nested-forms.html which was helpful in understanding how the processing works. I was even more excited when I found http://cwiki.apache.org/WICKET/conditional-validation.html which instructed me exactly how to alter the form object to do what I wanted. Unfortunately, the trick does not work as I expected it to.
It seems that if I simply implement IFormVisitorParticipant.processChildren, it is not enough to stop the Nested form's FormValidator from firing when the main form is submitted. Therefore, I tried to implement the isEnabled technique. This did have the desired effect the first time through a page (enter data, submit main, no nested validator fires) but when the page re-renders after the submit, the nested form is now disabled! It seems that the findSubmittingButton() method finds the button that was used to submit the form, even though the page is rendering again. Another thing I noticed upon my different attempts is that altering the isEnabled method to use findSubmittingButton() won't work because findSubmittingButton() calls isEnabled()! which puts the code in an infinite loop. Could someone please enlighten me on how to code an isolated nested form using Wicket 1.4.x. Where isolated means that I want the form to have its own submit button and those fields are only submitted/processed/validated when that button is clicked. I want the form to be ignored by the parent form. ________________________________ This is a PRIVATE message.
