On a JSP page, I have a dataTable and a few buttons on top (not inside the dataTable). These buttons are commandLink(s); when the user clicks on one of them (form example) a pdf report opens in a new window (target=_blank).
The problem is that once the user clicks on the commandLink button to open the new report page and closes it, clicking on other components on the same (original) page also run the action from the commandLink button. For example, clicking on the next page button of a pagerDeluxe at the bottom of the page will not advance the dataTable to the next page but open the pdf report window again.
Has anyone encountered this behavior, and what was your solution?
