I'm trying to render excel worksheet that contains list of employees data grouped by departments. The only way I have found is to to arrange list of e:worksheets with the same name by starting row. I find it to be unnecessarily difficult. And render subtotals requires extra e:worksheet per master record.
What I need is a tag that could help me to iterate (vertically and horizontally) e:worksheets without needs to calculate starting rows and columns.
Ideally it would be nice if seam-excel introduced a component similar to rich:dataTable. (Probably it would be possible to override render kit for this particular component).
And another difficulty is that e:worksheet does not work without var attribute. From the other hand I would like to just layout several cells on the worksheet. It would be convinient if there was a tag that renders just matrix with width and height specified.
You're one tough customer ;-)
Show me some imaginary xhtml what you are looking for
PS. worksheet should work without a var. Try
<e:workbook xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:e="http://jboss.com/products/seam/excel"> <e:worksheet> <e:cell row="1" column="1">Hello world!</e:cell> </e:worksheet> </e:workbook>
