This is from a forum thread. the URL to the forum thread is:

The messages pasted by the customer are:
Hello ALL,

What is the procedure to create the checkBoxList component that should render
into tabular form

I mean to say, it has to take support both pageDirection and lineDirection
Property of checkBoxList component

How can I do this?


OK, I understand that.

But having different radio button groups/checkbox groups involoves lots of
client side coding(Javascript) and also much coding at server side as each group
will be assigned with different ID. So it may leads to some confusion in coding
also (Code become little complicated).

So, I Think this functionality should be available for these JSF components
which helps the developer a lot. I hope/expect this functionality will be
included in next JSF specfications revision



Hi Giri,

This is what I got from my client.

If is it possible to provide the answers in rows (more than one choice per row),
that would be great. For the more complex jobs, we may need more space to have
more information provided.

He is not interested on ListBox model for chckboxes.

So, I think some of the clients are interested in these type of models also, and
I think components display in tabular form is must. to fulfill the client's
requirements. Isn't it ?

After all a client is a god for any software company :)

The requirement is to display the options of a checkboxList in multiple rows.
For example if a checkboxList has 5 items, then there should be an option where
the first 3 items are displayed in row 1 and the other two items are displayed
in row 2.
