<h:inputText value="#{pmsPatientWebGuiListBean.lastName}" />
<h:commandButton value="Search"
action="#{pmsPatientWebGuiListBean.searchPatient}"/>
<h:dataTable id="adresstable"
value="#{pmsPatientWebGuiListBean.pmsPatients}"
var="patient">
<h:column id="firstname">
<f:facet name="header">
<h:outputText value="First Name" />
</f:facet>
<h:commandLink action="#{pmsPatientWebGuiListBean.select}" >
<h:outputText value="#{patient.firstName}" />
</h:commandLink>
</h:column>

Did you put your code within the

<h:form>
</h:form>

tags.

I experience sometimes that the <h:commandbutton> is not working when it's not within a form.

Sorry I see it's the <h:commandLink />

This is also certain true with the <h:commandLink> button because it's submits the enclosing form.

Hi wilhelm,

Thanks for your reply.
I have included <h:commandLink /> within <h:form></h:form>.
even though its not identifying action method under bean class.

Thanks,
Vinutha.

Did you check the following link.

Maybe you can find the solution in here

Sun Developer Network "dataTable and commandLink not working together"

I've tried the combination within dataTable and commandLink and it worked.

Hi wilhelm,

Thanks for your response,
I solved that problem by keeping managed bean under session.

Thanks,
Vinutha.

"vinutah ml", you have previously been warned on one or more occasions regarding adjusting your display name to meet JavaRanch standards. This is not optional. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it prior to your next post.

Your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are removed.

"vinutha"

Your name is still not correct. Please review the naming policy and update it. This is your third and final warning.

The only way I've been able to get commandlinks to work inside of a datatable is to set the scope of the backing bean to session in faces-config. Try that out and see if it works for you.

It is still not working for me.

I put the h:commandLink inside h:form tags, and my backing bean is session scoped, but it is not responding.

Can someone please advise?

Thank you
Frank
