VAADIN Grid Dummy Rows

Hello there,

is it possible to always show row strips in VAADIN Grid, also if the privider is empty?


I don’t believe that is possible directly, since the row stripes come from actual rows. But there is no row, if there are no items.

I can think of some workarounds that come close, but I personally would not want to implement them, I’d rather push back on the requirement of having the row stripes in the first place.

bad workaround #1: define a background-image on the grid that looks like row stripes.
bad workaround #2: check if your dataprovider returns an empty list, and if so then create empty mock items and return those instead.

i guess i will push back the requirement, but thanks for your reply and workaround-ideas!
