FilterTable is an extension of the Table component in Vaadin. FilterTable is available for both Vaadin 6 and Vaadin 7 (versions postfixed with '.v7').

Added features: • Provides automatically generated filter components between the table header and body • Automatically filters enum, boolean and date properties • Other properties are filtered as a string • Numeric properties can optionally be filtered with a comparator popup • Allows developer to provide own filter implementation for any property • Allows developer to decorate the numeric, date, enum and boolean filter components with custom captions and icons • Provides integration of PagedTable add-on with the filter bar • Provides integration of TreeTable with the filter bar

NOTE: The Vaadin 6 version of this addon requires Vaadin 6.8.7 or later, starting from add-on version 0.8.4.

NOTE: The Vaadin 7 version of this addon requires Vaadin 7.0.1 or later, starting from add-on version 0.8.4.v7.

NOTE: The Vaadin 7 version of this addon requires Vaadin 7.1.0 or later, starting from add-on version 0.9.0.v7.

NOTE: The Vaadin 7 version of this addon requires Vaadin 7.2.0 or later, starting from add-on version 0.9.9.v7.

NOTE: The Vaadin 7 version of this addon requires Vaadin 7.3.0 or later, starting from add-on version 0.9.11.v7.

Known issues: Please see the issue list in the linked GitHub page.


Please report any issues in the linked forum thread or GitHub - not the review comments. Thank you.


Please note that only the latest versions of FilteringTable for both Vaadin 6 and Vaadin 7 are supported. I will not backport bugfixes to earlier releases.
