Just over two years ago I wrote an article on this blog – integrating-adf-faces-and-myfaces-tomahawk-creating-a-popup-with-adf-faces-shuttle-component (supported by Changing the order of columns in a JSF Table Component -in the client, at run-time, by the end user and having-the-end-user-hide-and-display-columns-in-a-jsf-table-component) – on how to implement functionality in ADF 10g applications that allowed the end user to bring up a popup window associated with a table. In this window, she can select the columns to display in the table and determine their other. This means for example that you can define a table with 25 columns, specify only five or so to be displayed when the page is first displayed and have the user select a different set of columns to display. In specific situations this can be very useful functionality – and at the very least it looks cool in demos.
The ADF 10g implementation is not extremely straightforward. It entails using the Apache MyFaces popup component and leveraging the ADF Shuttle Component. Some additional wiring with a managed bean is required. Not too hard, but not very elegant either.
I thought to implement this feature with the ADF 11g More >
