T5 Desired complex community components

Daniel Jue
I was wondering what kind of components people are looking for that
are not yet available as an open source example.  T5 seems to have the
simple html components pretty well covered, and we're all waiting
anxiously for direct AJAX support.  I was thinking simple things, up
to the complexity of  Pallete, Grid and BeanEditForm.

I am using the EnhancedPallete (on the wiki) with good success, and I
created an EnhancedGrid that allows for a component to be stuck in
it's body (good for rows of totals that you want to align with the
grid, but not have sorting apply to)

Some other ideas that I've seen come up in the past:
A Grid-independant Pager (sounds easy to do, but I haven't needed it yet)
Fisheye Menu (Was part of Tacos?)
Date Picker and Color Picker (I think they are available now)
Progress Bar (would probably require AJAX to be any good)

What about codified versions of these components?
PivotTable (kind of like a Grid and Tree I guess)
Tabs (Examples have been given, but a nice out-of-the-box one with CSS
would be cool for tutorials)
Dashboard (Something for dealing with IFrame layouts?)

How about things that delve into areas normally reserved for web
designers?  (dynamic generation of Flash buttons would be a great
starter example, using something like JGenerator)  The Tapestry
rounded-corners service is in this kind of gray area. I'm kind of
hooked on the idea, especially if caching works as well as serving
image files.

What else is out there (either on the web or in a rich client) that
you'd rather not reinvent?

How about a filtering grid? :)

What I really miss now in Tapestry 5 is all the flexibility and ease of  
use of T4's contrib:Table in Grid. I love the way contrib:Table columns  
can be reordered and added. You shouldn't need to create a new BeanModel  
just to reorder columns or add an additional column. Unfortunately, I  
haven't had the time to fix that myself and then contribute it back to  
Tapestry 5.

I think that a "tree" component would be great.
The component could be used to traverse tree structure as, for exemple,
directory tree or menu.

Some details are given here :
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-1718

I have an simple tree component...

I hate those tree implementations with nodes and recursions like
dojo.tree.. feels so heavy

there is already a very nice tree example on the wiki by ErikVullings
using :
http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/scripts/drag-drop-folder-tree/drag-drop-folder-tree.html

Version I have is a simple (basic) tree component that can render a tree
from a TreeModel
and generates an action event with node id included.
I know that not everybody likes this approach, but if ther's interest, I'll
put it on the wiki
so we can see where it goes. One more reason for not putting it out
is waiting on first parts AJAX support to enter tapestry to maybe add
some value from it.

Hi,

here is a good place to start: http://www.jsfmatrix.net/

Click on the demo links to see what other frameworks have. The list of
components is long...
