Get row ID from af:table with javascript

Hello, I have a table that has client listener. When I select a row from a table it triggers the JS code. Now, I'd like to fetch either row ID or a value from a selected row. I have so far put the table as client component and fetched it with var textfield = AdfAgent.AGENT.getElementById('pt1:r1:1:pc1:t2'); . Now I would need a way to find out the ID of the caller row or to manipulate cell from called row.

jDev version

With regards,

    Hi, I've been trying to look into this and I think I've found a way to a partial solution to what you are looking for, at least for single selection.

    I've gotten the selected row keys and index of the selected row.

    Here is the javascript function, its a bit hacky in its implementation due to the seeming oddness of how the object returned by getSelectedRowKeys is

    function jsSelectionListener(evt){

        var source = evt.getSource(); // javascript representation of the ADF table

        var selectedKeys = source.getSelectedRowKeys()  // object that holds all of the selected row keys

        var selectedRowKey;


        // Got to iterate through the selected keys to find the actual selected key

        for(var i = 0; i < source.getRows(); i++){

            if(selectedKeys[i] !== undefined)

                selectedRowKey = i;



        if(selectedRowKey !== undefined){

            console.log(source.getRowIndex(selectedRowKey) + " " + selectedRowKey); // shows two numbers, one for the row's index and another for the rowKey, they aren't necessarily the same number.



    Its called through a client listener through an af:table

    <af:clientListener type="selection" method="jsSelectionListener"/>

    This method only gets a number, rather than an ID or value, so it isn't quite what you were asking for.

    Here is docs I used if you'd like to look further.



    Hope this helps.

    If i understand correctly then take a look at the attached application and run it.

    You get a popup with dynamic client Id from button clicked in the table (the part of the path before the button id is the 'rownum' - that you want).
