Render a panelconfirmation conditionally

I want to show a confirmation dialog on click of by Create commandlink but only when a particular condition is satisfied based on value enetered by the user in a text field. So I evaluate this condition inside the validator of that field and set the panelconfirmation only if that condition is satisfied:

HtmlCommandLink cmd = (HtmlCommandLink) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getViewRoot().findComponent(

However, there's a loophole. If I enter something in the text field and directly click on Create link without losing focus from the field, the panelconfirmation is not set and the confirmation dialog doesnot appear.
Any workaround anybody?
