[ZK EE]
[Since 5.0.0]

With ZK EE, you can enable Render on Demand for Grid and Listbox to boost performance to show huge amount of data. Grid and Listbox will load only the necessary data chunk from associated ListModel, render required Row(s)/Listitem(s) on the server, then create only the required corresponding widgets and render the DOM elements really needed in browser. It improves the performance and saves memory significantly on both the server and browser sides.

Note: ROD actually brings performance boost on both the client side and server side. However, if you use forEach to populate Rows or Listitems, the components will be all in memory, which does not give you any performance benefits on server side. (The client side still enjoys a boost.) If you want to fully leverage the power of ROD, the use of model is recommended.


ROD: Grid

If you want to enable Grid ROD for the whole application, you can specify a library property called grid rod with true. For example, specify the following in zk.xml:

<library-property>
	<name>org.zkoss.zul.grid.rod</name>
	<value>true</value>
</library-property>

Or, if you prefer to enable it for a particular page, then specify true to a page's attribute called grid rod, such as

<custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.grid.rod="true" scope="page"/>

Or, if you prefer to enable it for all descendant grids of a particular component, then specify true to the component's attribute. You can enable it for a subset of the descendant grids. For example,

<window>
  <custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.grid.rod="true"/> <!-- enable it for descendant grids of window -->
  <grid ...>
    ..
  </grid>
  <div>
    <custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.grid.rod="false"/> <!-- disable it for descendant grids of div -->
      <grid ...>
        ..
      </grid>
      ..
  </div>
</window>

Note that Grid ROD is will not work unless the Grid is configured with a limited view port; i.e. you have to set height or vflex attribute of the Grid or set the Grid to paging mold so the user can see only a portion of the content of the Grid.

Specifies the number of rows rendered

[default: 100]
[inherit: true]
[since 5.0.8]

Specifies the minimum number of rows rendered on the client. It is only considered if Grid is using live data (Grid.setModel(ListModel)) and not using paging mold (Grid.getPagingChild()).

<custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.grid.initRodSize="30"/>

ROD: Listbox

If you want to enable Listbox ROD for the whole application, you can specify a library property called listbox rod with true. For example, specify the following in zk.xml:

<library-property>
	<name>org.zkoss.zul.listbox.rod</name>
	<value>true</value>
</library-property>

Or, if you prefer to enable it for a particular page, then specify true to a page's attribute called listbox rod, such as

<custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.listbox.rod="true" scope="page"/>

Or, if you prefer to enable it for all descendant listboxs of a particular component, then specify true to the component's attribute. And, you can enable it for a subset of the descendant listboxs. For example,

<window>
  <custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.listbox.rod="true"/> <!-- enable it for descendant listboxs of window -->
  <listbox ...>
    ..
  </listbox>
  <div>
    <custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.listbox.rod="false"/> <!-- disable it for descendant listboxs of div -->
      <listbox ...>
        ..
      </listbox>
      ..
  </div>
</window>

Note that Listbox ROD is not working unless the Listbox is configured with a limited view port; i.e. you have to set height, vflex, or rows attribute of the Listbox or set the Listbox to paging mold so the user sees only a portion of the content of the Listbox.

Specifies the number of items rendered

[default: 100]
[inherit: true]
[since 5.0.8]

Specifies the number of items rendered when the Listbox first render. It is used only if live data (Listbox.setModel(ListModel)) and not paging (Listbox.getPagingChild()).

<custom-attributes org.zkoss.zul.listbox.initRodSize="30"/>
