rich:comboBox problem !

Hi,

I�m trying to load a richfaces comboBox, but it only shows the IDs of the
selectItems, not the descriptions. Whith a h:selectOneMenu it works fine.

I return a list of SelectItems. The code is as follows:

<!-- it works -->
<h:selectOneMenu id="comboGrupo" value="#{userMB.grupoActivo}"<
< f:selectItems value="#{userMB.elementos}" />
</h:selectOneMenu>

<!-- but it isn�t work -->

<rich:comboBox id="richCombo">
<f:selectItems value="#{userMB.elementos}" />
</rich:comboBox>

The way I�m loading the elements in the managed bean for both richcombo and selectOneMenu is as follows:

ArrayList<SelectItem> col= new ArrayList();
while(..)
{
SelectItem si = new SelectItem(String.valueOf(myObject.getId()),myObject.getName());
col.add(si);
}

But I only get a comboBox whith IDs in the case of the rich combo... not any description...

Could anyone help me?

Thank you,

David

You might have more luck if you ask RichFaces specific questions at a forum devoted to RichFaces. There's of course one at its homepage, JBoss.org.

Ok, here is the solution, it seems rich:comboBox is working in a different way.
