Subject Re: [Trinidad] How to get control over tr:table detail disclose link table cell?
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 08:26:49 GMT
Hi Bart,

the skinning support for the automatic disclose link is not sufficient as far as i can see.

E.g. in <tr:column> i can set the style class via EL so i have full control over the
styles in a rendered table row,
and I can explicitly change the style class of a disclosed row's table cells.

But there is no possibility to change the style class of the cell with the built-in disclose
link of a disclosed row.

i am missing something like:

 <f:facet name="discloser" ></f:facet> 

an attribute in tr:table like: 

any way to hide the built-in disclose link (cell). 
we already implemented an own listener for enhanced control over the row disclosing which
we place inside a normal tr:column.
but there is no way to hide the built-in disclose link (cell). As soon as i add the necessary
detail facet, the cell gets rendered.

you see my problem? 

Best regards,
