    Use richfaces datatable inside PanelMenuItem

    Vinny Tiwari Newbie

      Hi,

       

        I am new to Richfaces and trying to use datatable inside panelmenuitem. I want to get the datatable loaded using AJAX on the expansion of menuitem but not able to do so. Right now bean is getting loaded with the page and I want to get this loaded only when the menu item is expanded.

       

      Pl. tell me how to get this done. I tried calling bean in Action of PanelMenuItem but not able to render the datatable.

       

      Pl. guide me do this.

       

      Thanks,

      Vinny

          I am trying to render the datatable on action but get the exception. I want to make AJAX call to load the data from server only when the menuitem is expanded.

           

           

          <rich:panelMenuGroup style="none" label="#{app.appName}" expandMode="ajax">
                                                              <rich:panelMenuItem icon="none" rendered="ext" mode="ajax" onclick="true" action="#{rolesBean.dataList}">
                                                                  <rich:datatable
                                                                      id="ext"
                                                                      value="#{rolesBean.list}"                                                                      
                                                                                  var="dataItem"
                                                                                  rowClasses="dataTableOddRow, dataTableEvenRow" rows="4"
                                                                                  reRender="datascroller1"

                                                                                  onRowMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor='#{a4jSkin.rowBackgroundColor}'"
                                                                                  width="350">

              if you need to fill the table on expansion of the group use action or listener of menu group instead of action of item itself. It's executed afetr item click. Also change mode of the item to none as I do not sure if the click on the table should be processed with item as just menu activation. Also check please rendered and onclick declaration. Them contains senseless values. It's standard attibutes and: rendered - boolean attribute which defines if the componetn should be rendered and on* attributes - client events handlers.

               

              As about exception - check some other components with the same id and make sure that you not using session scoped bindings.

                I tried doing the following but getting NULL object. Is this the way you said

                 

                 

                <rich:panelMenuGroup rendered="true" label="Applications" actionListener="#{rolesBean.loadData}" reRender="roles">
                                          <rich:panelMenuItem icon="none" id="pitem" >
                                                        <rich:dataTable value="#{rolesBean.list}"  <-- Calls the list object from bean
                                                                                            id="roles"
                                                                                            var="dataItem"
                                                                                            reRender="datascroller1"
                                                                                            rowClasses="dataTableOddRow, dataTableEvenRow" rows="4"
                                                                                            columnClasses="50,100,100,100"
                                                                                            onRowMouseOver="this.style.backgroundColor='#B5F3FB'"
                                                                                            onRowMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor='#{a4jSkin.rowBackgroundColor}'"
                                                                                            width="350">

                 

                 

                 

                public void loadData (ActionEvent event) {

                             loadRoleseList(); // This method builds the object with values.
                }

                 

                Pl. help.

                  add reRender defined with dataTable id to the group.

                    it is already there in the panelMenuGroup

                     

                    <rich:panelMenuGroup rendered="true" label="Applications" actionListener="#{rolesBean.loadData}" reRender="roles">

                     

                     

                    Do I need to define any event like onclick for actionListener or any other even.. I even tried using onclick="true" but getting NULL object.. infact, bean's method in the actionListener is not getting invoked.

                      t.. infact, bean's method in the actionListener is not getting invoked.

                      Can you post actionListener method ?

                          The code seems correct.. no "onclick" is needed...

                           

                          What is the scope of the bean class rolesBean ?

                            The bean is in request scope. In my bean I have a method called public void loadRoleseList() {}. This builds list of roles. I have


                            //Action Event method which calls Roles List method and this is called in actionListener for PanelMenuGroup
                            public void loadData (ActionEvent event) {
                             
                              loadRoleseList();
                                }


                            //This is returning List of roles. I am calling this in Datatable.  
                            public List <RolesData> getList()

                              return rolesList;
                            }


                            I want to build the object using actionListener of PanelMenuGroup and get the object in datatable.

                             

                            But loadData() is not getting called from actionListener() and when getList() is called in dataTable it returns NULL because the object is not yet constructed.  I am wondering why actionListener is not able to invoke loadData()

                             

                            Do you see any issues with the loadData method for actionListener.

                             

                            Thanks

                              Hi,

                               

                              You have removed expandMode="ajax", so panel menu group is operating solely on the client. That's the reason "actionListener" is not being called.

                                Now I am able to get the actionListener invoked but only after a click on the header dataTable and then the data gets loaded.

                                 

                                                     <rich:panelMenuGroup label="Roles defined" expandMode="ajax">
                                                            <rich:panelMenuItem icon="none" rendered="true" reRender="Roles" actionListener="#{rolesBean.onAction}">
                                                                                       <rich:dataTable value="#{rolesBean.list}"
                                                                                                            id="Roles"
                                                                                                            var="dataItem"
                                                                                                            reRender="datascroller1"
                                                                                                            rowClasses="dataTableOddRow, dataTableEvenRow" rows="4"
                                                                                                            columnClasses="50,100,100,100"
                                                                                                            onRowMouseOver="this.style.backgroundColor='#B5F3FB'"
                                                                                                            onRowMouseOut="this.style.backgroundColor='#{a4jSkin.rowBackgroundColor}'"
                                                                                                            width="350">

                                 

                                 

                                Inititally, after expanding the PanelMenuItem dataTable gets loaded without any data but after clicking on the header of DataTable I see the action method getting invoked and data getting loaded.

                                 

                                Can you tell why is this happening.. ActionListener should be fired on the click of Menu item...

                                 

                                Pl. guide

                                  Set ActionListener and reRender to menuGroup not to it's item:

                                   

                                  <rich:panelMenuGroup label="Roles defined" expandMode="ajax" actionListener="#{rolesBean.onAction}" reRender="Roles">

                                    Thank you so much for your help. It worked this time with panel menu group.

                                     

                                    I have another query I am trying to iterate using <c:forEach> to populate <rich:panelMenuGroup>. I need to get the ID for DataTable changed with each iteration to avoid exception for duplicate ID.

                                     

                                     

                                     

                                    <c:forEach var="app" items="#{applicationBean.dataList}">
                                              <rich:panelMenuGroup  label="#{app.appName}">
                                                        <rich:panelMenuGroup label="Roles">
                                                                  <rich:panelMenuItem icon="none">
                                                                             <rich:dataTable value="#{rolesBean.dataList}"

                                                                               var="dataItem"

                                                                               id="??" 

                                     

                                     

                                    How can I do this?
