I have create a new toggle component which has an onToggle event defined in its java class:

static {
    addClientEvent(Toggle.class, "onToggle", CE_IMPORTANT|CE_REPEAT_IGNORE);

the service method handles the event:

public void service(org.zkoss.zk.au.AuRequest request, boolean everError) {
    final String cmd = request.getCommand();
    if (cmd.equals("onToggle")) {
    Event evt = Event.getEvent(request);
    final Map<String, Object> data = request.getData();
    super.service(request, everError);

In my widget javascript I fire the event using this code:

this.fire('onToggle', {value: this.getState()});

The problem is the event never gets to the server as an AuRequest.

If I use the to server option:

zAu.send(new zk.Event(zk.Widget.$(this), 'onToggle',{value: this.getState()}, {toServer:true}));

it works fine, but if I do it this way I cannot capture the event on the client using the client namespace.

Am I missing something - the doco indicates that the event should go through to the server.
