Creating Multiple PageBlockTables Dynamically
There are times when we want to display the table dynamically. Not just the columns, but we might come across a scenario where we the table needs to be repeated itself fetching the data dynamically, which could change on fly. For example, the user can chose a list of first names, and we want to show the contacts with the same names in separate table. Here the user can select just a single name as the query parameter, or can select multiple. Our static pageblock table will not work here as it is, but can be used in combination to repeat tag to achieve the same
Steps to Repeat multiple pageblocktable Using Repeat Tag:
In this we can first create list of list of contact records which would store contacts for multiple tables. Based on the criteria selected by the end user, we can add new list of contacts. This list of contact can then added as a property in our controller, which can in turn be used to bind the data with the tables in the VisualForce page.
- VisualForce page:
Bind the controller to VisualForce page and use repeat tag to iterate the contents of collection and create the pageblocktable accordingly. Pageblocktable can now be created dynamically.
Here is the output of VisualForce page:
