    Datatable inside a Datatable

    flo thomas Newbie


      Hi,
      I was wondering if nested Datatables ( one inside another, the inner one using the "var" tag of the outer one) work with seam. I have messages and each message has variable numbers of "information"-tags, and i want to display first the outer properties and then the "variable-length" inner properties like this:

      <h:dataTable value="#{msgList}" var="con" rendered="#{msgList.rowCount>0}">
      <h:column>
      <f:facet name="header">Person</f:facet>
      #{msg.owner.username}
      </h:column>
      <h:column>
      <f:facet name="header">Details</f:facet>
      <h:outputText value="No information found" rendered="#{con.information != null and con.information.rowCount==0}"/>
      <h:dataTable value="#{con.information}" var="con2" rendered="#{con.information.rowCount>0}">
      <h:column>
      #{con2.information.displayName},#{con2.information.firstName},#{con2.information.lastName}
      </h:column>
      </h:dataTable>
      </h:column>
      <h:column>
      <f:facet name="header">Action</f:facet>
      <s:link value="View Details" action="#{msgSearch.select}"/>
      </h:column>
      </h:dataTable>


      would that generally work? It doesn't seem like it, but maybe I am doing something wrong... Any links regarding this would be appreciated!!
      Thanks...
