Description nickbeare 2008-07-16 14:50:00 UTC
This is probably not an issue, but I cant find where to post a question!
I am using VW JSF working with JPA. I am having some problems with Woodstock drop down list. I have managed to bind to 
my entity okay, but having selected an option from the dropdown, when a subsequent post back is performed (a search 
button is clicked), the drop down control no longer shows the selected option. 

The dropdown is initially populated in the sessionBean's init() method.
I have placed some debugs in the various events (prerender() for example, and evaluate the selected option (ie 
ddlStatus.getSelected() where ddlStatus is the id of my bound dropdown control) it appears selected okay!
The pages init() method does nothing, neither does the preprocess() method.

Can anybody offer any suggestions?

Also if, as I guess, this is not the forum for posing such questions, could anybody enlighten me as to where to make 
such posts?

Rephrase of earlier post, where I say "drop down control no longer shows the selected option" what I meant to say 
was "drop down control no longer shows the option as selected"
