New PrimeFaces PickList
October 5, 2010 18 Comments
As with any PrimeFaces development iteration, we try to add new features, fix reported bugs and enhance/maintain current features. Design principle of a PrimeFaces component is “It must be cool and look cool”. One component that was against this was PickList, here is an old screenshot of old picklist;
Pretty lame right? So when a PrimeFaces component is not cool, we usually reimplement it to match PrimeFaces standards preserving the backward compatibility as much as we can, here is how new PickList looks;
The look and feel satisfies the “look cool” part but what about the “be cool” part. New PickList features DragDrop based Reordering, various transition effects (e.g. fade, bounce, puff, clip …), theme support(all 28 themes and your custom PrimeFaces themes are supported) and more.
Live Demo to try the new PickList Beta is at http://www.primefaces.org/showcase/ui/picklist.jsf .
