Hi all,
In my application I am showing a dataTable .The dataTable has 4 columns.
I want that all the columns will take same width(i.e. each column will 25% width of the dataTable) irrespective of the data length.
But I am not able to control that one beacuse <h:column> doesn't have width attribute.
What is happening in my application is that the columns size is diffrent depending upon the length of the data.as example--

-------------------------------------
col1| col2 | col3 |col4
-------------------------------------
1 | jdjhsdhsdshj | 1 |2

as the length of the col2 data is bigger than others so it's taking the most of the width .
But I want that each column should have the same width.

How can i do that one.please help.

Hello,
you can use columnClasses attribute of dataTable tag to specify css classes for columns.
Please take a look at this page

Almost anything visual for JSF is set by CSS.

Thanks for yours reply .Actually I am already using ColumnClasses,StyleClass to display the table with some style..

In the columnClasses i used a css style to set the data alignment for diffrent column.now if i add the width with that style then.in all other pages where i am using the same style they also set to the same width. but that pages may have more or less number of columns so the alignment getting wrong.
for clarification i use the following css in columnClasses
.leftAlign{
text-align :"left";
}
.leftRight{
text-align :"right";
}
now if i add width then all other pages are getting effected .
now one solution may be to use diffrent style sheet with diffrent width as appropate.but is it good practice? as there will be repetation of the alignment ;only the width is changing..please suggest.
