    Thanks for all the hard work you all do to make PrimeFaces my favorite JSF component library. However, sorry to say I don’t like the new showcase. For me it’s hard to find what I’m looking for by category than the old way which was alphabetical. Just my 2 cents worth.

    I cleared browser cache multiple times and attempt to open the page, but megamenu is on upper left as demonstrated in screen capture (here), but remainder of page content is displayed at the bottom of the mega menu, so I have to scroll down to see everything. In screen capture, the page content is rendered to the right of the mega menu after selecting options on mega menu.

    I wonder why content is at bottom of DOM for me. 🙁

    Hi PrimeFaces-team,
    I like the overhaul of the show case, but I’m having some minior improvement suggestions:
    * Make the panels collapsible
    * Add the componentes in an alphabetical order (it’s much easier to find)
    * The centered showcase was a little bit more appealing to me (instead of aligning it to the left)

    Anyhow, great work in general I really do appreciate your work.

    Hi Cagatay,

    I like the font “Segoe UI”. Very nice font. Saidy, but it’s not available in IE (Windows 7). Plain Arial is shown.

    By the way, do you have any plans to add Vdldoc and JSDoc to the showcase?
    JSDoc: you know this tool, there are at least two Maven plugins to intergrate into pm.xml.

    I user would have the option to see components by group and alphabetical, That will be great.
    And I think it’s better to decrease the width of the left column.
    Thanks for the great job!

    While I appreciate the additional space in the component area I found the old alphabetical navigation with component -> feature selection much easier to use.

        I concur! Much more efficient when you already know the component name and just want to refresh your memory.

    As I use a vertical monitor, the selected showcase moves to the bottom of the screen, which is very uncomfortable (same effect probably on small screens). It would be nice to be able to make the menu on the left smaller or the actual showcasearea more flexible in width.
    I generally like the ordering by category, because it makes it easier to find a solution for some specific problem. Still overall order could be improved. Maybe return to alphabetic order and use Tagcloud or something similar to filter certain elements (like Input etc.)? Just a suggestion.

      The same happens for IPad2 as well.

    🙂 Number of components / use cases is so big that we need an autocomplete now to find them.

      Now, components are displayed on the right of the menu. Thanks Cagatay!

    I prefer the old way!
    for example: I found the fileupload because i know it, if is the first time, i can’t found it

      I also like the older/traditional look-n-feel of Showcase, but PrimeFaces is doing ‘new’ things. So, I welcome the ‘new’ look-n-feel of Showcase.

      Go PrimeFaces!

    In my opinion the new showcase is great. That new structure was probably a necessary step, because of the growing amount of components.
    Thumbs up

    I quite liked the new layout. You better organizationally speaking.

    But I think you could implement a structure shaped like Full Page Layout, where the bar components to the left, could be reduced at will, or even minimized. Perhaps, using a structure similar to the example layout TabbedLayout ( of “Primefaces Extensions”, where each tab, could be the Showcase sections (PrimeUI, PrimeMobile, PrimePush). The Themes selector is fine where it is (Upper right).

    Another suggestion would be to provide the components menu on the left, in two formats (Functional and Alphabetic), to please everyone. When the selected format is Functional, rather than Panel, AccordionPanel could be used.

    And finally, the menu component could stay afloat, leaving the contents roll in the central area and if the components exceed the space available on the screen, make the menu scroll vertically (These two above, may be corrected when using a layout structure described above). Just for that after the change in the Showcase, I realized that is somewhat annoying having to scroll the screen to change the sample.

    These are my suggestions, though he talked a lot, liked the new changes in the Showcase and I know you find it interesting comments that contribute to the better.

    Thanks, keep doing the good work you do.

    Perhaps there are simply no updates as of yet for the 3.3 snapshot version of PrimeFaces but I always found it helpful, when visiting the labs demo, to have the updates since the last released version highlighted for easy recognition. Again, if there are no updates since the last release and such highlighting already exists then please disregard.

    At any rate I find PrimeFaces very useful for my projects, not to mention some bragging rights I recently obtained against a coworker who is an ardent IceFaces fan.

      Nevermind, the was an update to some components in the snapshot demo and I see that they are highlighted. Thanks.
