PrimeFaces Ajax

Ajax Attributes

The following table contains Ajax attributes.

Attribute Default value Return type Description

async false boolean When set to true, ajax requests are not queued.
process null String It is used to process in partial request.
update null String It is used to update with ajax.
onstart null String It is used to execute before ajax request is begins.
oncomplete null String It is used to execute when ajax request is completed.
onsuccess null String It is used to execute when ajax request succeeds.

If this option is not specified, or if the value of delay is the literal string ‘none’ without the quotes, no delay is used.
partialSubmit false boolean Enables serialization of values belonging to the partially processed components only.
partialSubmitFilter null String Selector to use when partial submit is on, default is “:input” to select all descendant inputs of a partially processed components.
