<af:table>

af:table table table

UIComponent class: oracle.adf.view.rich.component.rich.data.RichTable
Component type: oracle.adf.RichTable

Naming container: Yes. When referring to children of this component ("partialTriggers", findComponent(), etc.), you must prefix the child's ID with this component's ID and a colon (':')

Table is used to display tabular data. It also supports row/column selection (both single and multiple), sorting, record navigation. Table is not meant for use as a layout component of disparate information. For more information about this, see the Accessibility Guidelines section.

Table Model

The Table component uses a model to access the data in the underlying list. The specific model class is oracle.adf.view.rich.model.CollectionModel. You may also use other model instances, e.g., java.util.List, array, and javax.faces.model.DataModel. The Table will automatically convert the instance into a CollectionModel.

Columns

The immediate children of a Table component must all be <af:column> components. Each visibleColumn component creates a separate column in the Table. Because of this stamping behavior some components may not work inside the column. Most components will work without problems, for example, any input and output components. If you need to use multiple components inside a cell you can wrap them inside a panelGroupLayout component. Components that themselves support stamping are not supported, such as tables within a table. For more information see the documentation for <column> section.

Headers

Use the "header" facet on a Column to create the column header. You can also use the "headerText" attribute to set the column header text.

DetailStamp

Use the "detailStamp" facet on the Table to include a collapsable content area for each table row. Please note that the height of the open detail area will be a set height based on the height of the detailStamp component. Adding a component that changes in height (like showDetail or panelBox) will by default produce strange results when the detailStamp component's height changes.

Detail Stamp can be selectively displayed for rows in the table by EL binding the "rendered" attribute of the "detailStamp" facet to "true" or "false". The EL binding can contain references to the table "var" attribute since during rendering it will be executed in the context of the row. Disclosure icon is displayed only for rows which have rendered="true".

Components that themselves support stamping are not supported within this facet of the table, such as table, treeTable, tree, region or carousel.

Selection

The selection feature of a Table lets the user select one or more rows in the list. The user can then perform some operation on the selected rows by activating an appropriate ActionSource component (e.g., by clicking on an CommandButton). Use the "rowselection" attribute on the Table to enable the selection feature.

Grid Lines and Banding

By default, the table draws both horizontal and vertical grid lines. These may be independently turned off by setting the "horizontalGridVisible" and/or "verticalGridVisible" attributes to "false".

Banding is a technique where groups of rows (or columns) are displayed with alternating background colors. This helps to differentiate between adjacent groups of rows (or columns).

The "rowBandingInterval" attribute on the Table controls how many consecutive rows form a row group (for the purposes of banding). If this is "0" all rows will have the same background color. If this is a positive number then adjacent row groups will have different background colors.

The "columnBandingInterval" attribute on the Table controls how many columns form a column group (for the purposes of banding). If this is "0" all columns will have the same background color. If this is a positive number then adjacent column groups will have different background colors.

Column Groups

<af:column> tags can be nested to produce groups of columns. The header of a column group spans across all the columns it contains.

Sorting

The Table component supports sorting columns in ascending or descending order. The table displays up/down arrow icons in the column header for sortable columns. Clicking on the up arrow sorts the column in ascending order. Clicking on the down arrow sorts the column in descending order. The ctrl+shift+up-arrow/down-arrow shortcut keys are also available to sort a column in ascending/descending order using the keyboard. The table shows a previously sorted column with a filled-in up/down arrow icon to indicate the ascending/descending sort order.

There are three requirements to enable sorting: the underlying table model must support sorting, the "sortProperty" and "sortable" attributes must be set on the column to enable the sort capability for that column.

To support sorting, the CollectionModel instance must implement the following methods:

    public boolean isSortable(String propertyName)
    public void setSortCriteria(List criteria)
    public List getSortCriteria()
            

If the underlying model is not a CollectionModel, the Table automatically examines the actual data to determine which properties are sortable. Any column that has data that implements java.lang.Comparable is sortable. This automatic support cannot be nearly as efficient as coding sorting directly into a CollectionModel (for instance, by translating the sort into an "ORDER BY" SQL clause), but is sufficient for small data sets.

To associate a column with a particular property-name to be used for sorting purposes, use the "sortProperty" attribute on the column. To enable the UI for sorting a particular column, set the "sortable" property to true. For more information see the documentation for <column>.

In the following example, both columns are sortable. Sorting the first column sorts by the "firstname" property; sorting the second column sorts by the "lastname" property.

    <af:table ...>
      <af:column sortProperty="firstname" sortable="true">
        <f:facet name="header">
          <af:outputText value="Firstname" />
        </f:facet>
        ...
      </af:column>
      <af:column>
        <f:facet name="header" sortProperty="lastname" sortable="true">
          <af:outputText value="Lastname" />
        </f:facet>
        ...
      </af:column>
    </af:table>
          

Fetch Size

The table/treeTable and tree components are virtualized. This means that not all the rows that are available for the component on the server are fetched and displayed on the client. The number of rows that are displayed on the client are just enough to fill the viewport. More rows are fetched as the user scrolls the component vertically.

"fetchSize" is the number of rows requested from the client to the server on each attempt to fill the component. So if the height of the table is small, the fetch size of 25 is sufficient to fill the component. However if the height of the component is large, there might be a need to request the data multiple times from the server. For example, if the height of the table is 600px and height of each row is 18px. You need at least 45 rows to fill the table. With a fetchSize of 25 the table has to make a request to the server 2 times to fill the table. So it is appropriate to set the fetchSize to 50.

CSS Style Restriction

"width:auto" inside inline style or style class is not supported.

"width" attribute value should not be "auto".

Attribute Notes

Examples of the "width" attribute: width="700" for 700 pixels, or width="100%" to fill up the entire width of the container. If no value is defined then the default will be 300 px.

The "rows" attribute is not currently supported for the rich renderer kit. Use inlineStyle to set the height of a table.

Emailable and Printable Modes

Note that when a collection is displayed in emailable or printable mode, only the collection rows currently present on the client will be included as part of the emailable or printable content. If you are looking for a way to provide all table rows, your best strategy is to provide an export data option for the collection (using an exportCollectionActionListener). However, an alternative to an export option would be to dynamically adjust the rows and fetchSize properties to a upper limit in printable mode. This would of course be subject to some good judgment. If the table contained one thousand rows, you would want to place a upper limit of maybe one hundred rows in print mode.

<af:table value="#{bindings.EmployeesView1.collectionModel}" var="row"        
  emptyText="#{bindings.EmployeesView1.viewable ? 'No data to display.' : 'Access Denied.'}"
  rows="#{adfFacesContext.outputMode ne 'printable' ?  bindings.EmployeesView1.rangeSize : 100}"
  fetchSize="#{adfFacesContext.outputMode ne 'printable' ?  bindings.EmployeesView1.rangeSize : 100}"
  rowBandingInterval="0" ...
            

Geometry Management

  • This component can be stretched by a parent layout component that stretches its children, e.g. panelStretchLayout.
  • When stretching this component, the only valid setting for autoHeightRows is "-1".
  • When NOT stretched, autoHeightRows="0" can be used to size the height to the fetch size, which is similar to dimensionsFrom="children". Please refer to 'autoHeightRows' attribute for more information.
  • Use the columnStretching attribute to configure stretching of the children column components.

Supported Facets

Name Description
bodyContextMenu popup component containing the context menu that will be shown on right click within the table body, but outside of any table row. The af:popup must contain an af:menu to display the context menu. Note that the bodyContextMenu facet does not currently support a popup with the childCreation attribute set to deferred.

detailStamp the component to stamp below every row which is disclosed. Adding a detail facet will automatically cause the detail column to be displayed.
footer the component used to render the table footer. This facet existed in 10.1.3, but is currently not supported in RichTable and RichTreeTable
header the component used to render the table header. This facet existed in 10.1.3, but is currently not supported in RichTable and RichTreeTable

Attributes

Name Type Supports EL? Description
activeRowKey Object Yes this is the row that is currently active on the client. In click-to-edit mode, the active row will be made editable and is brought into view (if not already visible). Upon initial display, the click-to-edit component defaults the active row to the first visible row.
allDetailsEnabled boolean Yes Default Value: false

whether or not to enable the show/hide all links above the table, which allow the user to show/hide all the detail rows. To enable the detail rows, a "detailStamp" facet must be set on this Table. This attribute existed in 10.1.3, but is currently not supported in RichTable
Not supported on the following renderkits: oracle.adf.rich
attributeChangeListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to an attribute change listener. Attribute change events are not delivered for any programmatic change to a property. They are only delivered when a renderer changes a property without the application's specific request. An example of an attribute change events might include the width of a column that supported client-side resizing.
autoHeightRows int Yes Default Value: -1

The number of rows used to size the component height. The default value is -1 (no auto-sizing for any number of rows).

  • The height of the component can grow to a maximum of 'autoHeightRows' after which a scrollbar is displayed.
  • This attribute is also supported when the component is inside PanelCollection.
  • A value of 0 can be used to default the autoHeightRows to the current fetchSize.
  • 'autoHeightRows' value cannot be larger than "fetchSize" attribute.
  • If a value larger than fetchSize is specified, the value is capped at the fetchSize.
  • If a value larger than the number of rows is specified, the number of rows in the component is used to size the component height.
  • 'autoHeightRows' works with contentDelivery=immediate/lazy/whenAvailable.
  • In screen reader mode, the default 'autoHeightRows' value of -1 still indicates no auto-sizing. With a value of 0+ the component will expand horizontally, but beyond this the 'autoHeightRows' attribute has no effect in screen reader mode.
  • Note that specifying a CSS "height" in the "inlineStyle" attribute will have no effect and will get overriden by the auto-sized height.
  • Specifying CSS "min-height" and "max-height" values in the "inlineStyle" attribute is not recommended and is incompatible with the autoHeightRows attribute.
  • When the component is placed in a layout-managing container, such as panelSplitter, it will be sized by the container (no auto-sizing will occur).

Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
binding oracle.adf.view.rich.component.rich.data.RichTable Only EL an EL reference that will store the component instance on a bean. This can be used to give programmatic access to a component from a backing bean, or to move creation of the component to a backing bean.
bodyContextMenuId String Yes A search expression to identify the popup component containing the context menu that will be shown within the table body, for clicks outside of any table row. Expressions are relative to this table component and must account for NamingContainers (for example, table and panelCollection are NamingContainer components). You can prepend a single colon to start the search from the root, or multiple colons to move up through the NamingContainers. For example, a leading "::" will pop out of one NamingContainer (including the component itself if it is a naming container, like table) and begin search from there, ":::" will pop out of two NamingContainers and begin search from there, etc.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
clientComponent boolean Yes Default Value: false

whether a client-side component will be generated. A component may be generated whether or not this flag is set, but if client Javascript requires the component object, this must be set to true to guarantee the component's presence. Client component objects that are generated today by default may not be present in the future; setting this flag is the only way to guarantee a component's presence, and clients cannot rely on implicit behavior. However, there is a performance cost to setting this flag, so clients should avoid turning on client components unless absolutely necessary.
columnBandingInterval int Yes Default Value: 0

the interval between which the column banding occurs. This value controls the display of the column banding in the table. For e.g, columnBandingInterval=1 would display alternately banded columns in the Grid.
columnResizing String Yes Valid Values: enabled, disabled
Default Value: enabled

Setting this value to "disabled" will turn off user column resizing. The default is "enabled".
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
columnSelection String Yes Valid Values: none, single, multiple
Default Value: none

whether columns in this table are selectable.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
columnSelectionListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to a ColumnSelectionListener
columnStretching String Yes Default Value: none

Indicates what kind of stretching you want applied to the columns. For optimal performance, use the "none" (default) option. If you want the last column to stretch to fill up any unused space inside of the viewport, use the "last" option. If you want to have an empty blank column be automatically inserted and have it stretch (so the row background colors will span the entire width of the table), use the "blank" option. If you want to have a specific leaf (non-group) column stretch to fill up any unused space inside of the viewport, use the option where you specify "column:" followed by the ID of the column that you want to have stretched, e.g. "column:myColId". If you want more than one column stretched, use the "multiple" option. When the "multiple" option is used you can set the widths in the columns (non-group) to be percentages. See the column documentation for how percentages are handled. Note that row headers and frozen columns will not be stretched because doing so could easily leave the user unable to access the scrollable data body of the table.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
contentDelivery String Yes Valid Values: immediate, lazy, whenAvailable
Default Value: whenAvailable

whether data should be fetched when the component is rendered initially. When contentDelivery is "immediate", data is fetched and inlined into the component chrome. If contentDelivery is "lazy", data will be fetched and delivered to the client during a subsequent request. If contentDelivery is set to "whenAvailable", upon initial rendering, the renderer queries the model for available data. Data is fetched and rendered immediately if model indicates that data is available. So contentDelivery="whenAvailable" behaves like "immediate" if data is available upon initial rendering.
contextMenuId String Yes A search expression to identify the popup component containing the context menu that will be shown on right click of any table row. Expressions are relative to this table component and must account for NamingContainers (for example, table and panelCollection are NamingContainer components). You can prepend a single colon to start the search from the root, or multiple colons to move up through the NamingContainers. For example, a leading "::" will pop out of one NamingContainer (including the component itself if it is a naming container, like table) and begin search from there, ":::" will pop out of two NamingContainers and begin search from there, etc.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
contextMenuSelect boolean Yes Default Value: true

Indicates if we should actually select the row clicked when right clicking to show a context menu. By default the row is selected before the context menu is displayed. However if contextMenuSelect="false", and if user right clicks a row, the new row is highlighted and the highlighting for the currently selected row(s) is cleared when the context menus is displayed. The highlighting of the currently selected row(s) is restored after the context menu is dismissed. It should be noted that when the context menu is displayed, the attribute selectedRowKeys still contains the selected row(s). The highlighted row key is established as a currency in the table when the action for context menu item is executed. The currency in the table can be retrieved by calling "table.getRowKey()".
customizationId String Yes This attribute is deprecated. The 'id' attribute should be used when applying persistent customizations. This attribute will be removed in the next release.
disableColumnReordering boolean Yes Default Value: false

whether column reordering is disabled in the table. Column reordering is on by default.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
disclosedRowKeys org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.RowKeySet Yes the set of disclosed rows for this component. Each entry in the set is a rowKey.
displayRow String Yes Valid Values: first, last, selected
Default Value: first

the row to display in the table during intial display. The possible values are "first" to display the first row, "last" to display the last row and "selected" to display the first selected row in the table. The default value for this is null which means that the first row is displayed. Please note that this API will have no effect if the total number of rows are not known from the table model (model.getRowCount()==-1).
displayRowKey Object Yes the rowkey to display in the table during intial display. Specifying this attribute will override the displayRow attribute. Please note that this API will have no effect if the total number of rows are not known from the table model (model.getRowCount()==-1).
dontPersist String[] Yes a list of attributes whose changes are NOT to be persisted by FilteredPersistenceChangeManager via the "Persistent Change Manager" registered in adf-config.xml. The token 'ALL' can be used in the list here to indicate that all attribute changes that the component implicitly persists should be excluded. If there is a conflict of values, "dontPersist" always precedes "persist".
editingMode String Yes Valid Values: editAll, clickToEdit
Default Value: editAll

Indicates the mode used to edit the table when it contains editable components. When a table is rendered as readOnly, the editingMode attribute is ignored. The possible values are "clickToEdit" and "editAll". In "editAll" mode all the editable components are displayed at a time in the table view area. In "clickToEdit" mode a single row is editable at a time. The following is the behavior:
  1. Stay in edit mode: If in edit mode, stay in edit mode when a read/only cell is reached via keyboard navigation.
  2. Enter key navigation: When in edit mode, ensure that pressing Enter or Shift+Enter navigates to the adjacent cell when possible.
  3. Esc key reverts cell edits: When in edit mode, pressing the Esc key reverts all edits made to cells in a row and disables edit mode.
  4. (NEW) Navigation pattern recognition: Using the Tab and Enter keys to navigate in edit mode establishes a row-wise navigation pattern that is repeated in adjacent rows.
  5. Input Field Text Selection: When a cell contains an input text field widget, the text is selected automatically when the widget has focus.
  6. Arrow Key Navigation: When in edit mode, pressing the arrow key allows the user to navigate from cell to cell in the same row or between rows.
In "clickToEdit" mode, quick row navigation is supported with arrow up/down key by changing to read-only mode with Esc key. Hitting F2 or Enter key changes the row back to edit mode with focus on the column that was previously focused. Here is how it works by clicking the following keys:
  1. Esc Key
    When the edit navigation focus is within an input component and hitting Esc, reverts the cell back to its original value. Navigation focus is at the cell level to enable navigation between cells. Then the user hits Esc key again, the row goes into read only mode.
    When it is in edit mode and the cell has focus, hitting Esc changes the row directly into read only mode.
    Once focused row is in read-only mode, user can use the arrow up/down key to quickly navigate between rows.
  2. F2 Key
    When in read only mode and the user hits F2 key, it takes the user into edit mode. Hitting F2 again (now that you are in edit mode) will turn off cell navigation mode so that user can navigate within cell or input component.
  3. Enter Key
    When in read only mode and the user hits enter key, it changes to edit mode and the focus is on the previously focused column.
emptyText String Yes Default Value: No data to display.

the text of an empty table. If the text is enclosed in an open and closing html tag, it will be formatted. The formatting behavior is similar to outputFormatted component. If it is not enclosed in an open and closing html tag, it will not be formatted.
fetchSize int Yes Default Value: 25

the number of rows in the data fetch block
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
filterModel Object Yes the model used for filtering of data in the table. This attribute must be bound to an instance of FilterableQueryDescriptor class.
filterVisible boolean Yes Default Value: false

whether the filter fields are displayed on the top of the table.
first int Yes Default Value: 0

the first property is used internally in the rich client and should not be set externally
Not supported on the following renderkits: oracle.adf.rich
horizontalGridVisible boolean Yes Default Value: true

whether the Horizontal GridLines are to be drawn.
id String No the identifier for the component. The identifier must follow a subset of the syntax allowed in HTML:
  • Must not be a zero-length String.
  • First character must be an ASCII letter (A-Za-z) or an underscore ('_').
  • Subsequent characters must be an ASCII letter or digit (A-Za-z0-9), an underscore ('_'), or a dash ('-').
immediate boolean Yes Default Value: false

whether or not data validation - client-side or server-side - should take place when events are generated by this component. When immediate is true, the default ActionListener provided by the JavaServer Faces implementation should be executed during Apply Request Values phase of the request processing lifecycle, rather than waiting until the Invoke Application phase.
inlineStyle String Yes the CSS styles to use for this component. This is intended for basic style changes. The inlineStyle is a set of CSS styles that are applied to the root DOM element of the component. Be aware that because of browser CSS precedence rules, CSS rendered on a DOM element takes precedence over external stylesheets like the skin file. Therefore skins will not be able to override what you set on this attribute. If the inlineStyle's CSS properties do not affect the DOM element you want affected, then you will have to create a skin and use the skinning keys which are meant to target particular DOM elements, like ::label or ::icon-style.
partialTriggers String[] Yes the IDs of the components that should trigger a partial update. This component will listen on the trigger components. If one of the trigger components receives an event that will cause it to update in some way, this component will request to be updated too. Identifiers are relative to the source component (this component), and must account for NamingContainers. If your component is already inside of a naming container, you can use a single colon to start the search from the root of the page, or multiple colons to move up through the NamingContainers - "::" will pop out of the component's naming container (or itself if the component is a naming container) and begin the search from there, ":::" will pop out of two naming containers (including itself if the component is a naming container) and begin the search from there, etc.
persist String[] Yes a list of attributes whose changes are to be persisted by FilteredPersistenceChangeManager via the "Persistent Change Manager" registered in adf-config.xml. The token 'ALL' can be used in the list here to indicate that all attribute changes that the component implicitly persists should be included.
queryListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to a Querylistener. The queryListener is called when the user preforms a query on the table using the query filter feature (see the filterModel and filterVisible attributes for how to enable the query filter feature)
rangeChangeListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to a rangeChange listener that will be called when a new range is selected.
rendered boolean Yes Default Value: true

whether the component is rendered. When set to false, no output will be delivered for this component (the component will not in any way be rendered, and cannot be made visible on the client). If you want to change a component's rendered attribute from false to true using PPR, set the partialTrigger attribute of its parent component so the parent refreshes and in turn will render this component.
rowBandingInterval int Yes Default Value: 1

the interval between which the row banding occurs. This value controls the display of the row banding in the table. For e.g, rowBandingInterval=1 would display alternately banded rows in the Grid.
rowDisclosureListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to an ExpansionListener
rowSelection String Yes Valid Values: none, single, multiple, multipleNoSelectAll
Default Value: none

whether rows in this table are selectable. If row selection is allowed, you need to make sure at least one column is set as a row header with rowHeader=true. Use the value "single" to enable single selection, "multiple" to enable multiple selection and "multipleNoSelectAll" to enable multiple selection but disable the user from doing select all.
rows int Yes Default Value: 25

the rows property is used internally in the rich client and should not be set externally
Not supported on the following renderkits: oracle.adf.rich
selectedRowKeys org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.RowKeySet Yes the selection state for this component.
selectionListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to a selection listener
shortDesc String Yes the short description of the component. This text is commonly used by user agents to display tooltip help text, in which case the behavior for the tooltip is controlled by the user agent, e.g. Firefox 2 truncates long tooltips. For form components, the shortDesc is displayed in a note window. For components that support the helpTopicId attribute it is recommended that helpTopicId is used as it is more flexible and is more accessibility-compliant.
sortListener javax.el.MethodExpression Only EL a method reference to a sort listener
styleClass String Yes a CSS style class to use for this component. The style class can be defined in your jspx page or in a skinning CSS file, for example, or you can use one of our public style classes, like 'AFInstructionText'.
summary String Yes the summary of this table's purpose and structure for user agents rendering to non-visual media.
unsecure java.util.Set Yes A whitespace separated list of attributes whose values ordinarily can be set only on the server, but need to be settable on the client. Currently, this is supported only for the "disabled" attribute. Note that when you are able to set a property on the client, you will be allowed to by using the the .setProperty('attribute', newValue) method, but not the .setXXXAttribute(newValue) method. For example, if you have unsecure="disabled", then on the client you can use the method .setProperty('disabled', false), while the method .setDisabled(false) will not work and will provide a javascript error that setDisabled is not a function.
value Object Yes the data model being used by this component. The specific model class is org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.model.CollectionModel. You may also use other model instances, e.g., java.util.List , array, and javax.faces.model.DataModel. This component will automatically convert the instance into a CollectionModel.
var String No Name of the EL variable used to reference each element of this collection. Once this component has completed rendering, this variable is removed (or reverted back to its previous value).
varStatus String No Name of the EL variable used to reference the varStatus information. Once this component has completed rendering, this variable is removed (or reverted back to its previous value). The VarStatus provides contextual information about the state of the component to EL expressions. For components that iterate, varStatus also provides loop counter information. Please see the this component's documentation for the specific properties on the varStatus. The common properties on varStatus include:
  • "model" - returns the CollectionModel for this component
  • "index" - returns the zero based row index
verticalGridVisible boolean Yes Default Value: true

whether the vertical GridLines are to be drawn.
visible boolean Yes Default Value: true

the visibility of the component. If it is "false", the component will be hidden on the client. Unlike "rendered", this does not affect the lifecycle on the server - the component may have its bindings executed, etc. - and the visibility of the component can be toggled on and off on the client, or toggled with PPR. When "rendered" is false, the component will not in any way be rendered, and cannot be made visible on the client. In most cases, use the "rendered" property instead of the "visible" property.
Not supported on the following renderkits: org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.core
