GroupTable component is a table with an ability to group information dynamically by any field. In order to group a table by a column the required column should be dragged to the left and dropped on the gui_groupTableIcon element of the table header. Grouped values can be expanded and collapsed using gui_groupBox_plus/gui_groupBox_minus buttons.

Component is implemented only for Web Client. In Desktop Client it behaves like a regular table.

groupDatasource must be specified for GroupTable in the datasource attribute of the rows element. Otherwise, grouping will not work. Example:

    <groupDatasource id="ordersDs" class="com.sample.sales.entity.Order"
            select o from sales$Order o order by o.date
    <groupTable id="ordersTable" width="100%">
                <column id="date"/>
            <column id="customer.name"/>
            <column id="amount"/>
        <rows datasource="ordersDs"/>

group is an optional element that can be present in a single instance inside columns. It contains a set of column elements, by which grouping will be performed initially when opening a screen.

Each column element can contain the groupAllowed attribute with boolean value. This attribute controls whether a user can group by this column.

If aggregatable attribute is true, the table shows aggregation results for each group and results for all rows in an additional row on the top. If showTotalAggregation attribute is false, results for all rows are not shown.

The rest of the GroupTable functionality is similar to a simple Table.
