I am using tomahawk datatable. whan row of the datatable is clicked , I need to display another page.

Is there any way by which the action method of bean can be called on rowclick of datatable?

never used tomahawk datatable...but on h:dataTable and rich:dataTable, you can create an action using a command button, command link, or whatever you like just like you do when you are outside a data table.

Tomahawk's datatable is an extension to the basic (core) JSF datatable - one extra feature it offers is the support for multi-page tables.

To make it possible to click anywhere on a row would mean doing some JavaScript work, since that's not a basic HTML ability. However, most apps just put links or buttons on "interesting" areas in the row and people find that acceptable.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
