Displaying a link in a tableView


I am trying to display a link in column of a tableview in a jsp page.

the source code is:

public void initAttachmentsModel() {

Vector colName = new Vector(2);

colName.addElement("File Name");


attachmentsModel = new DefaultTableViewModel(attachmentsList, colName);

TableColumn col = attachmentsModel.getColumn("URL");




But no link is displayed within the tableview.

I also tried setUserTypeCellRenderer() and still no results.

    Hi Aviad,

    You can do this in two ways. Populate the value of all columns in Table Model.

    <u>I Way</u>: Set the column type as Link in TableView Model.

    <hbj:tableView  id="myTableView"
                    model= "myTableViewBean.model"
                    design = "ALTERNATING"
                    headerVisible = "true"
                    footerVisible = "true"
                    fillUpEmptyRows = "true"
                    selectionMode = "MULTISELECT"
                    navigationMode = "BYLINE"
                    headerText = "<h3>tableView</h3>"
                    visibleFirstRow = "1"
                    visibleRowCount = "4"
                    onNavigate="onNavigate" >
    myTableView.setColumnType(TableColumnType.LINK,column no);

    <u>II Way</u> Set the column type as TableColumnType.USER and write the cell renderer.

    myTableView.setColumnType(TableColumnType.USER,column no);        
    myTableView.setUserTypeCellRenderer(new TableViewCellRenderer()); %>

    In Cell Renderer ""

    import com.sapportals.htmlb.*;
    import com.sapportals.htmlb.rendering.IPageContext;
    import com.sapportals.htmlb.table.ICellRenderer;
    import com.sapportals.htmlb.table.TableView;
    public class TableViewCellRenderer implements ICellRenderer {
        public void renderCell(int row, int column, TableView tableView, IPageContext rendererContext) {
            if (column == 1) {
             Link mylink = new Link();
             String linkText = tableView.getValueAt(row,  
         // Set the renderer

    Hope this helps.



    PS. Dont foget to award points if it is useful/solved
