Let's say I want to conditional rendering of outputPanel markup

<apex:page controller="SOQLBC">  

<apex:outputPanel id="sobj" rendered="{!LEN(sObj)>0}">
    <span>  --- {!sObj} --- </span>
</apex:outputPanel> 
<apex:form>
         -- {!LEN(sObj)>0} --
    <apex:selectList value="{!sObj}" size="1">
        <apex:selectOptions value="{!sObjList}"/>
        <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" reRender="sobj"/>
    </apex:selectList>
</apex:form>

controller

public with sharing class SOQLBC {

public SOQLBC() {
    sObj = '';
}
public string sObj {get; set;}
public List<System.SelectOption> getsObjList() {
    List<System.SelectOption> options = new List<System.SelectOption>();
    options.add(new SelectOption('', '-- Select SObject --'));
     for(Schema.EntityDefinition entity : SchAccess.getsObjectsLite()) {
        options.add(new SelectOption(entity.qualifiedapiname, entity.label));
     }
     return options;
}

}

I want to show updatePanel only if sObj does not equal '' but I can't reach my goal - updatePanel is always hided

   <apex:outputPanel id="sobj">
    <apex:outputPanel rendered="{!LEN(sObj)>0}">
        <span >  --- {!sObj} --- </span>
    </apex:outputPanel>         
</apex:outputPanel>

  • I can't see any part in the code that changes your Apex-variable "sObj". So it will always be an empty String. Commented Nov 25, 2019 at 13:50

  • by the way, <apex:selectList value="{!sObj}" size="1"> does not enough?

By Default value of sObj is blank hence outputPanel with sobj id does not exist on page load. So actionSupport was not working.

Update your code like below and it should work

  <apex:page controller="SOQLBC">  
       <apex:form>
<!-- Add parent outputPanel which will always render-->
           <apex:outputPanel id="parentPanel">
               <apex:outputPanel id="sobj" rendered="{!LEN(sObj)>0}">
                   <span>  --- {!sObj} --- </span>
               </apex:outputPanel> 
           </apex:outputPanel>
            <apex:selectList value="{!sObj}" size="1">
                <apex:selectOptions value="{!sObjList}"/>
                <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" reRender="parentPanel"/>
            </apex:selectList>
        </apex:form>
    </apex:page>
