There is an important feature in RichFaces 4 that get documented at wiki recently and today I want to point you to that article. That article is related to Programmatic control of partial processing in RichFaces 4.
If you working with RichFaces 3.3.x and looking for the same info - do not ignore that page. It's written as comparison of 3.3.x and 4.x functionality so you will see RichFaces 3.3.x methods also!
Questions which are adressed in that article (for both RichFaces 3.3.x and 4.x) listed below. Again all the answers related to programmatical access to PartialViewContext and not just working at component/attributes level.
- How to add component to set of execute'd ones.
- How to add component to set of render'ed ones.
- How to check if current request is Ajax request.
- How to limit Ajax updates to just set of render'ed components excluding automatically rendered ones.
