Subject Re: Field not binding.
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 14:40:28 GMT
Hi Kamal,
I can't see anything wrong with your binding, except 
"<fb:identity><fbvalue id="position" path="position"/></fb:identity>" 
where fdvalue should be fb:value, but this would prevent your repeater 
from binding correctly also all other fields in the repeater, so I think 
this is a typo in your mail rather than in your form.

Try to set it required=true, this will cut your problem : if the form 
returns a validation error, then the form is not receiving the value, so 
maybe the problem is in the HTML/XSL or somewhere else after the form 
itself, while if it does not return a validation error, then the forms 
receives the value, so the problem is in the binding/bean.

Another suggestion could be to run cocoon in debug mode, connect to it 
with your IDE, and place a breakpoint both in Information.getChannelInfo 
and Information.setChannelInfo to see if they are called and if the 
proper values are passed. This will again cut your problem, if setter is 
called correctly then the problem is not in binding, if it's not called 
then it is in binding.

Let me know.
