limitToList attribute prevents flashing

If you have some elements (or even the whole page) that flash/twinkle using RichFaces, it probably means that these elements are AJAX-rendering. The question is by whom and how to fix it?

A lot of tags in RichFaces can AJAX-render elements such as:

    <a4j:jsFunction name="updateName" reRender="showname">
        <a4j:actionparam name="param1" assignTo="#{}"  />                  

On the above example, the JavaScript function updateName will AJAX-render the element which has the ID showname.

In some cases, you would have some elements that would AJAX-render without asking them to do so!
I still didn’t figure it out why. 🙁 (if anybody has an idea, please don’t hesitate to tell me!)

But, I found a way to prevent this!
You simply can add the following attribute to your tag:


You even can add it to the tags that don’t have a reRender attribute.
For example:

    <a4j:poll id="poll" interval="1000" limitToList="true" />
