Barcode Component

Barcode component is a new addition to the suite to generate various types of barcodes easily. SVG (default) and PNG are the supported export formats where PNG is used by default for browsers that does not support SVG like IE8. Under the hood barcode4j library is used as the generator and qrgen for qrcode support.

Usage is simple as;

<p:barcode value="#{bean.value}" type="int2of5" format="svg|png" orientation="0|90|180|270"/>

Barcode will be available in upcoming PrimeFaces 5.1 Release.

Triple PrimeFaces Elite Release

PrimeFaces Team is proud to announce the new updates to PrimeFaces Elite. 5.0.5 and 4.0.18 are available with defect fixes, new features and enhancements whereas 3.5.28 provides only defect fixes. Highlights of the recent changes are;

AutoComplete Grouping

Requested by a PRO user, groupBy attribute is added to group the suggested items into categories.

Grid CSS and Responsive DataGrid

Grid CSS is a lightweight (1.4KB) responsive layout utility optimized for mobile devices, tablets and desktops. Up to 12 columns are supported based on fluid and fixed modes.

While the Grid CSS can be used as standalone, we’ve also started integrating it with various components to take advantage of responsive features. One good example is DataGrid;

On a smaller screen, panels stack up.

Grouping with Dynamic Columns

p:columns component is used to generate dynamic columns on the fly but there was a limitation when grouping is used in headers or footers. To provide this, we have added ui:repeat support to generate columns in headers-footers as well. This is also sponsored by a PrimeFaces PRO User.

Accessibility Enhancements

Thanks to PRO sponsorship, a couple of more components get accessibility features such as keyboard access for datatable sort headers and screen reader support for autocomplete.

So that is it for highlights, here is the detailed changelog;
