    CDK creating Custom select

    Ilya Dyoshin Newbie

      Good day.

      I need to implement some kind of select component. But when user clicks on select button there should not be a simple list but the panel with tree or dataTable or dataGrid and simple filter fields.

      How to make such thing. Is there a base triggerable component in Richfaces CDK. or I have to make a whole bunch.

      Any adwise would be great. 'cause I'm total newbie in development of JSF UI Components.

          No, there's no base triggerable component, you'll have to make the whole bunch. Here we have developer guide for CDK: http://docs.jboss.org/richfaces/latest_3_3_X/en/cdkguide/html_single/, you can start with it. For client-side code you can employ some kind of jQuery plugin or implement the whole JavaScript/CSS stuff from scratch. CDK doesn't help to create composite components (e.g. component that includes rich:tree or rich:dataTable as an integral part), however you can use external rich:tree or rich:dataTable defined as child of your component.

          Another option is creation of Facelets tag that will implement the required functionality by composing several existing components together into a single easy-to-use tag.
