      I am trying to use the t:datalist control in <%@ taglib uri="http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk" prefix="t"%>

      My data is fetched from the backing bean. My JSF is as follows:

      <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" prefix="h" %>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f" %>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" prefix="c" %>
      <%@ taglib uri="http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk" prefix="t"%>

      <f:view>



      <t:outputText value="Testing"/>
      <t:outputText value="Testing//"/>
      <f:verbatim>

      <%int c =1;
      System.err.println("1111111111111111111111111****************"); %>
      <t:dataList value="#{registerBean.books}" var="book"
      id="horzNav" layout="grid" >
      <f:verbatim>


      <t:commandLink action="#{registerBean.institutions}">
      <t:outputText value="#{book.ISBN}" />
      </t:commandLink>
      <t:outputText value="Testing"/>
      <t:commandLink action="#{registerBean.institutions}">
      <t:outputText value="#{book.title}"/>
      </t:commandLink>
      <f:verbatim>

      </f:verbatim>


      </f:verbatim>

      <%

      if(c == 3)
      {
      System.err.println("dgsahfashfasjfasfafs****************");%>
      <f:verbatim>

      </f:verbatim>
      <%}else{
      System.err.println("(((((((((((: "+c);
      }
      c = c+1;
      System.err.println("(((((((((((: "+c);
      %>
      </t:dataList>


      </f:verbatim>



      </f:view>

      I am not able to run sciptelts in between the t:datalist tag, though it is read only once but i am not able to increment the value of the count variable "c".
      My aim is to populate my data in the form of 3 columns and n rows.

      Please let me know if my approach of using the t:datalist is correct or not. I failed to use <h:panelgrid> and <h:datatable>

      Please reply.
      Thanks in advance.
