One of the very interesting JSF components that ADF 11g RichFaces has put in our hands is the Pivot Table. I have blogged about that component a while back (see ADF Faces 11g: Reloading the Matrix – using the Pivot Table component) – and now it is time to take the next step with this component. I have been getting some assistance from the ADF DVT team – Katia’s gang – and with their help I am able to demonstrate some ‘second step’ functionality for the pivot table – things that you do not do in the Pivot Table 101, that I described in the previous article.
First we create the Pivot Table – Timesheet – based on a Placeholder Data Control (with static sample data). We will run the page that contains the Pivot Table and see how versatile this already is. We will create a context sensitive context menu that displays additional information about the cell for which it was opened. We will also see how we can add data specific formatting to the cells.
