dataTable onclick

In a form, I have a dataTable and I have some inputFields that do not belong to the dataTable.

I'm looking for some "onclick" behavior: If the user clicks on a row, the values of that row should be made available in the inputField, preferably using ajax.

I'm using JSF 2 (MyFaces) with Tomahawk. I would prefer a solution that doesn't need additional libs.

Does anyone know if there is some way to achieve this?

Thank you!

You could render the text in the data table fields as command links.
