What's the right Grid component to use ?

Hi all,

I have to start a new project and I chosed to use Vaadin because it is cool :slight_smile:
Well, I have to create a lot of modules which must display data in a Grid; the grid should manage filtering,sorting,paging,etc.
So, could you advise me some good Grid components or some examples ?
Cheers.

Hello There,

By grid I think you mean table. If so, Grid is currently not available with Vaadin(As of 7.1 and it is expected to be part of 7.2 release). On the other side, there are implementations(basically addons) to look at which closely resambles the functionality that you are looking at. You can use either of the following addon or combinations to achieve it


  1. JDAL

  2. FilterableTableState
    with
    PaginationBar

  3. FilterableTable
    (I believe most of the users use this to achieve the functionality of grid)
  4. If you wish to have simple one use Plain Vaadin
    Table
    with
    PaginationBar

If you wish to lay various components in an orderly fashion just like

in html then you can use
GridLayout

Hope this answers you question!

Thanks,
Krishna

The upcoming Grid component
has been postponed
until Vaadin 7.3.

Now that 7.3 is out, I guess that means 7.4 (unless Grid is hidden somewhere)?
