    It's seems lots of vcp components are lost!

    ricky lau Newbie

      Compare to richfaces 2.0...
      A lot of components are lost::::
      dialog window(not model window), panel menu, menu, calendar, speedometer, debug components, header components...

      And the skin seems not as beauty as richfaces 2.0....

      Is there any plan to do this???

          for starter, what new components are added:

          rich:dataTable
          rich:subTable
          rich:column
          rich:columnGroup
          rich:dataDefinitionList
          rich:dataFilterSlider
          rich:dataGrid
          rich:dataList
          rich:dataOrderedList
          rich:datascroller
          rich:dragIndicator
          rich:gmap
          rich:modalPanel
          rich:simpleTogglePanel
          rich:tree

          Technically, we have created the 3.0 set using our new Component Factory (Ajax4jsf Component Development Kit). It was not so much different what to do - new component or re-factor the old one. On the priority bases, some of the old components are moved to the next release or removed

          To your list:
          dialog window was based on the iframe and has it own conversation context. So, it has to be re-factored to be flexible. For example, to use Seam Conversation context

          panel menu, menu, calendar need to be refactoring toward improving their models

          speedometer. Such component should developed as a complete set of industrial-like components.

          debug components. a4j:log from ajax4jsf core library has the similar behavior. We have a plan to have more sophisticated client-side monitor of the server-side data.

          header components. Ie. h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6. As soon as facelets as well as jsf 1.2 allow to use just pure html h1-h6, those header components just do not make any sense

            Thank you very much, SergeySmirnov:
            It's a good message.
            Hope richfaces become stronger and stronger!
            And hope can see the next release soon. ^_^

              Hi
              What about the skin issue? will it be possible to customize the skin as in v 2.0?
              We are especially missing the round corner option:

              panelRadiusCorner=10px

                In general, the skins are expendable. You can create your own skin and have what even parameters you want there.

                We refused the idea to have a cornered panels, because the components with heavy layout are killers for Ajax (the traffic issue).
