Grid Renderer

From Documentation

When a Grid is assigned with a model, a default renderer is assigned too (see the Model-driven Display ). The default renderer will assume that each row has only one column, and it converts the data into a string directly[1]. If you want to display multiple columns or retrieve a particular field of the data, you have to implement RowRenderer to handle the rendering and assign it by setRowRenderer().

For example,

public class FoodGroupRenderer implements RowRenderer, {
    public void render(Row row, Object obj, int index) {
        if (row instanceof Group) {
            row.appendChild(new Label(obj.toString()));
        } else {
            User user = (User) obj;
            row.appendChild(new Label(user.getName()));
            row.appendChild(new Label(user.getDescription()));
            row.appendChild(new Label(user.getDomain()));

  1. If the grid is assigned a template called model, then the template will be used to render the grid. For more information, please refer to the Grid Template section.
