From Documentation

A renderer is a Java class that is used to render the items specified in a data model[1]. The implementation of a renderer depends on the component. For example, the display of Listbox can be customized by an implementation of ListitemRenderer, and Grid by RowRenderer[2].

  1. If you prefer to define the rendering of each item in the ZUML document, you could use templates instead.
  2. The same model usually can be shared by components having the same logic model. For example, ListMode can be used in both Grid and Listbox. However, a renderer is usually specific to a particular component.
