Using ActionSupport on a picklist to rerender and call a controller function - not working

Hi, I have a couple of issues, but will start with the 2 basic ones and try to be brief:

Setup:  My page will display an Account name and then populate a picklist with all child accounts.

When the user selects a child account (from the picklist) a portion of the page should rerender with additional details about that child...there's more to it, and it's not the basic SFDC details page, but not important. 


First:  My picklist seems to be rerendering, but the function doesn't seem to be called.  I stuck in a simple "counter" to see if it's being called, and doesn't look like it.


2nd:  My debug logs don't seem to be doing anything.  I don't see either the system log window doing anything, or when I set up the debug log monitoring.  I have several system.debug("...") calls that don't show up.


Thanks in advance for any help.


I've put my vf page and controller below:



public with sharing class z_ppBOStartCtrl { private final Account distributor; private List<Account> shiptos; String[] shiptoselected = new String[]{}; List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>(); String poNumber; String[] pickupType = new String[]{}; List<SelectOption> pickupOptions = new List<SelectOption>(); public Id ShiptoID {get; set;} public Account shiptoselected1;// {get; set;} Integer count = 0; public Integer getCount() { return count; } public Account getshiptoselected1() { return shiptoselected1; } public String getPoNumber() { return poNumber; } public void setPoNumber(String s) { poNumber = s; } public Account getDistributor() { return distributor; } public PageReference save() { update distributor; return null; } public List<SelectOption> getoptions(){ return options; } public String[] getShiptoselected() { return Shiptoselected; } public void setShiptoselected(String[] shiptoselected) { this.shiptoselected = shiptoselected; } public List<SelectOption> getPickupOptions(){ return pickupOptions; } public String[] getPickupType() { return pickupType; } public void setPickupType(String[] pickupType) { this.pickupType = pickupType; } public z_ppBOStartCtrl() { try{ //don't worry about some of this logic as I'm not using it yet... //Use URL ContactId to find a usable contact for the queries for testing if(ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')!=NULL){ Contact conAcctid=[select c.account.id,c.account.parent.id from contact c where c.id =:ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')]; //Populate my picklist below //If the Account is a Parent if(conAcctid.account.parent.id==NULL) { distributor = [select id, name, parentid from Account where id = :conAcctid.account.id]; shiptos = [select a.id, a.name, a.pickup__c from Account a where a.parent.id = :conAcctid.account.id ]; options.add(new SelectOption('','--Select Below---')); for (Account a : shiptos) { options.add(new SelectOption(a.id,a.name)); }//end for }//end if //Otherwise, it's a child else { distributor = [select id, name, parentid from Account where id = :conAcctid.account.parent.id]; //The ship to will be the same account shiptos = [select id, name, parentid, pickup__c from Account where id = :conAcctid.account.id]; options.add(new SelectOption('000','--Select Below---')); for (Account a : shiptos) { options.add(new SelectOption(a.id,a.name)); } //end for }//end else } else { User currentUser = [Select ContactId, Contact.AccountId from User Where Id = : UserInfo.getUserId() Limit 1]; id conAcctid=currentUser.Contact.AccountId; distributor = [select id, name, parentid from Account where id = :conAcctid]; } } public pageReference xShipto() { system.debug('#### child selected...' + System.currentPageReference().getParameters().get('selected')); shiptoselected1 = [select a.id, a.name from Account a where a.id=:System.currentPageReference().getParameters().get('selected') limit 1]; //I've tried hardcoding a known id above, that didn't work either... count++; system.debug('#### child selected...' + shiptoselected1); return null; } }
