Humm ... merde ... I guess not :-/[/img]
I think I read somewhere that they will be reworking this whole thing (as it's not only performance but buggy too) some time - but I do not remember where I read this.
Besides I switched to the normal rich:dataTable (due to bugs in scrollable) doing scroll function via a rich:panel and selecting via a4j:support. The only thing scrollabledatatable can do mor is adjusting size of columns and the header remains fixed when scrolling.
I would concur that I have found that performance of the SDT not to mention buggy.
I have made several posting in the past in this regard and would love to get some sort of statement from the RichFaces team when they are going to finally address the quality of this component as a whole.
It is disappointing that the overall quality of the RichFaces component library is detracted from by the quality of this one key component (at least to our application).
You may notice the tone of frustration in this post and it is meant to sound that way since we are back-leveled several releases of RichFaces due to the state of this component.
Please RichFaces team, a reply here would be nice.
Could you post your JSP code to replicate the scrollabledatatable with a panel and a4j:support please, that sounds a good workaround to the scrollabledatatable problems I'm having.
