Table Searching

I am using Vaadin 6.6 and using a two column table. I am just wondering if there was an easy way if I were to press “L” for it to jump to the values starting with L, or some other letter?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don’t think there’s any very easy way. ComboBox and NativeSelect support that kind of selecting, but Table doesn’t.

With Table, you might typically have a TextField to filter or search, and then do the search or filtering either on Enter or with TextChangeEvents, as is done in
this example
.

Without a TextField, it gets more difficult. I guess you could use shortcut keys for that purpose as well, but the action API is not really designed for that (you’d need to define every key as a separate shortcut). Making a Table extension on the client-side would of course be one possibility to catch the keypresses. Key presses of course require having the focus, which may be less clear with a table than with other components.
