One of the most popular feature requests we get from PrimeFaces community is the horizontal scrolling for datatable to deal with many columns, before 3.0.M3 we had vertical scrolling and now we have x, y and xy scrolling; Implementing this is quite easy, you just need to; Set scrollable option to true in datatable Provide fixed widths to your columns Use scrollHeight/scrollWidth in pixels to specify which type of scrolling you want And then we deal with the...

Spring ROO - PrimeFaces Add-On is progressing but help is needed! Attached is the message from Spring Roo Lead Alan Stewart; The Spring Roo team have started an exciting new add-on to create Roo applications with a PrimeFaces UI.

Tooltip component was far away from the PrimeFaces standards, it had serious positioning issues(see here) and had problems with ajax updates. It was based on qtip jquery plugin so in order to fix these issues to provide a production ready component, I've followed our new approach that is working quite fine which is writing a native PrimeFaces widget instead of using a third part work to have full control. So for 3.0.M3 I've rewritten the tooltip...

PrimeFaces M3 work continues with the new enhanced AutoComplete. Our old autoComplete was based on jQuery UI autocomplete which was working fine but limits us on displaying customized html content since suggestions were JSON based. So I've rewritten the autocomplete as a native PrimeFaces Widget. All features are backward compatible and css structure is slightly changed to fit PrimeFaces conventions. Various options (delay, minLength, forceSelection, maxResults ...

PrimeFaces 3.0.M3 begins with the new ThemeSwitcher component. Old themeswitcher had many shortcomings, it can't work in an offline environment since it needed a connection to load the themes and saving the selected theme on the server side was tricky. For new themeSwitcher I've created a native PrimeFaces widget as an extension of selectOneMenu that can load themes locally since it is an input component selected theme can be passes to the backing bean. Using optional...

We are adding it back to the taglib file nowadays so you'll get that sort of docs plus there...

David Heffelfinger has released his new book titled "Java EE with NetBeans 7". Importance of this book other that being a great resource on Java EE 6 for us is the wide coverage of PrimeFaces. As you know NetBeans 7 only bundles PrimeFaces as the component suite and David showed how to utilize PrimeFaces to create awesome looking RIA easily. Lately an interview with David is posted on dzone where he also praises PrimeFaces. And now it's the...
