I am trying to craete a JSF page. I want to get the user input either from a drop down list or input text field
If the user starts typing in "input text" then the drop down list should be disabled. Otherwise if the user selects a name from the drop down list, then input text filed should be disabled. I tried as follows. But it doesn't work properly. Can anyone give me some suggestion?

Should I use Ajax for this? But I haven't used it before.
So any simple solution for the above situation? Thanks.
What you are describing closely resembles a ComboBox control, except that a traditional ComboBox doesn't actually disable the list, since typing can be used to more rapidly locate an entry in the list. A variation of this for Web 2.0 is to use AJAX to cause the list to dynamically adjust itself based on what has already been typed.
