You can download the sample workspace from here.
The main.jsf page contains a task flow(dept-task-flow) with a search view embedded inside an  af:popup . Each time you invoke the popup, the search panel state in the popup is reset as the task flow is re-activated each time.

  1. Hi Jobinesh,

    Try replace the panel window in the popup with a dialog component , your solution will work only when the dialog cancel button is pressed but when Ok button pressed the re-activation is not working ... do you have any idea about this issue.

    Thanks , Mahmoud Abdultawab

  2. Hi Jobinesh,

    We have to put the same popup canceled listener code inside the dialog listener to invert the condition.

    public void dialogListener(DialogEvent dialogEvent) {
    // Add event code here...
    ADFContext.getCurrent().getPageFlowScope().put("forceActivate", "false");

    Sorry for the disturbance.

  3. Great Article. Thank you for sharing! Really an awesome post for every one.
