Validating s:fileUpload

Hi. Using seam/RichFaces, I'm trying to validate a filename when it's selected in a s:fileUpload, before it's submitted.

I can get the method called on onchange(), but the value I've set (the fileName) is still undefined. Is there a way to do this?


In the UploadRules bean, I have getters & setters for these variables:

And the method that gets called when the filename is selected (before it's uploaded by clicking the submit button). Neither variable is set ... and there's my problem. Ideas?
