In a project we have been using the dataTable component (non lazy) for CRUD with filtering/sorting and multiViewState.
Some how after a series of manipulation actions the visually representation of the dataTable sort/filter will get messed up.
A full page refresh (non ajax) seems to fix the issue (multiViewState is restored). Working on a fully-reproducible example.

As a workaround i am trying to fully reinialize the table sort/filter/cache/... instance state based on the stored multiViewState state.

Something like:

Code: Select all

DataTable dataTable = (DataTable) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getViewRoot().findComponent("form:datatable");
Has someone dealt with this before?
Using primefaces 10.0.7 (latest version) and mojarra23.

We do exactly what you do above in our projects and it works. It removes all sorting and filtering.
