Hi Guys,

I'm facing problem creating Sub-header in datatable column, something like this.
|main header column |
|sub header-1 | sub header-2 |
|sub data-1 | sub data-2 |

One bad solution would be using multiple data tables and use external styles/ divs to manipulate the column / sub column widths.

Thanks Varun for the suggestion.
What if i have editable table then things get worse,
in that situation it will be very tough to get hook of
full row.
May be we can raise an RFE to extend the datatable to include
this fuctionality.

Other rancher please post your comments if you have resolved
this of problem.

I agree. Here's the link:
