    There is a table component in ADF Mobile (well, some sort of a table).
    You can make one yourself using an iterator and the table component.
    Check out the code generated by the listview, it's a table in fact.

    The table grid you are talking about is not practical with Mobile apps. If you want table component then use ADF mobile browser app instead of native app. I have seen some example on web with table on iPad.

    P.S. This i was talking about http://download.oracle.com/otn_hosted_doc/jdeveloper/11gdemos/ADFFacesTouch/ADFFacesTouch.html

    HI, what is your target device, and what type of data are you displaying?

    If you are targeting the phone form factor, then displaying table would typically be sub-optimal. You would want to use listView. You can arrange your listView so it displays data in several columns using tableLayout/RowLayout/CellFormat, although the text you can display will need to be very short to make it practical.

    If you are targeting a tablet, the most common UI pattern is to use panelSplitter where left side is a listView and right side are additional details for the selected record. You can use the tableLayouts/RowLayout/CellFormat to format your controls essentially as a grid. You can also leverage iterator component if you want display multiple child record within a row.

    The HR demo (in the page for iPad) has such a pattern - please take a look.

    It is highly unusual for any native mobile app to display data in a table - table is really intended for web-based UI and does not give device-native user experiences.

    Thanks,

    Joe Huang

    Hi Zeeshan,

    i know that none of the mobile app development platforms have "table/grid " like components,there is a "List" component at all . I watched the Shays video that you sent to me. I need native resources of mobile device and i have online/offline scenarios.
