Before I go through the exercise of making a new custom component, I wanted to check if anyone else has already completed this.

Basically a merging of a dataTable and a panelGrid. You provide a collection, a number of columns and a 'body' for the tag.

The body would then be repeated for each item in the collection in a grid format with the specified numbers of columns and as many rows as is needed to display the entire collection. Picture a thumbnail view of a bunch of images.

I have duplicated this funcationality using a datatable, a repeater and a collection of collections, but it's ugly.

FYI - rich:dataGrid already contains this functionality. Saved me some time.
