Is anyone using sandbox selectManyPicklist? I have searched the forums , but did not find any related to this.

If anyone is using it, I would like to get feedback.
Is there any equivalent available for that feature?

I'm not exactly sure what kind of answer you are looking for here. You ran the demo. What did you think of the component? What kind of feedback are you looking for?

Is there any equivalent available for that feature?

Do you mean is there another component by another vendor that does the same thing?

Thank you for replying, Pardon my English. Yes, I meant by another vendor. By feedback, I meant to know if there will be any compatability issues when using that component in WAS6.
I am already using Myfaces and Tomahawk, so if I include another vendor (like Oracle)'s components will there be any issues?

I don't believe the picklist is an ADF component. Some of the sandbox components may have came from the ADF contribution, but since they are in sandbox I believe they no longer have any ties to ADF in that regard.

That being said, I have no idea about WAS6. We are using Websphere6 but not WAS. I ran all the sandbox examples and they seemed to work fine. You should be able to just include the sandbox jar and add the taglib declaration to your pages. I will remind you that these components are considered BETA which is why they are still in the sandbox library. So any issues you have will probably be related to immature components still being modifed and changed and enhanced on a daily basis.

You'll probably want to make it a habit of getting the latest build at least 2-3 times a week to make sure you are getting all the updates regularly. Especially if you run into issues. You never know when they might have fixed the bug you are experiencing.

Thanks for your suggestions. I will be downloading sandbox jars and will start working with them.

Gregg,
Can you please give me an idea how to reset selectManyPicklist. I have a Reset button on my page. When I click that I need to reset the picklist with all items on the left list box and right list box should be empty.

Thank you in advance.

I figured it out. I don't know if there is a better way to do it, but I am doing like this:

On click of a button I am calling an actionListener method in the backing bean. In that I am making the value of selectManyPicklist null. Then it is automatically reset the way I wanted.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
