I am trying to puzzle out using Vaadin to create a vertical table, i.e.:

Caption element 1: | Table Row 1 info | Table Row 2 info | Table Row 3 info
Caption element 2: | Table Row 1 info | Table Row 2 info | Table Row 3 info
Caption element 3: | Table Row 1 info | Table Row 2 info | Table Row 3 info
Caption element 4: | Table Row 1 info | Table Row 2 info | Table Row 3 info

This kind of layout is totally absent in the book of vaadin (though a really short illustration of icon based row headers is offered) as well as absent from discussion in forums.

Does anybody acquainted with Vaadin understand how this layout could be accomplished?

Thanks

You can possibly hide the table header by:

Table t = new Table();
t.setColumnHeaderMode(Table.COLUMN_HEADER_MODE_HIDDEN);

And then you utilize a cellStyleGenerator coupled with a TableFieldFactory to achive your particular layout. However, To be sure along with you this choice is missing in the standard vaadin table.
