Hi ,
I need to open a popup from a jsf page.
I tried with 2 options-

1. h:commandlink
Problem- It doesnot have onclick event so not able to show popup

2. hutputlink
problem- it doesn't have action or actionListener.

Actually what i am doing is that--
My application has a datatable and one column has h:commandlink (Store Number)
on click on that i need to interacted with database and open a popup which will show the details of the particular store.
so for that one i need to on bean methos and pass the store number to that method.

How can i implement these in JSf.

Please help.

Hi Dwijen,
You can try the target attribute in commandLink. This will open a new window.

Hope this helps.

The target attribute of <h:commanLink> has never worked for me-maybe it has to do with the version of jsf that I'm using. Either way...Try this it works for me...
On the command link itself... add an onmousedown like so-->
<h:commandLink styleClass="commandLink" id="CheckLnk"
<hutputText id="CheckTxt"
styleClass="outputText" value="Report">

Let me know if this meets your needs!
