ADF UI- Show DVT Chart inside af:table and other collection components

Hello All

This post is about showing a chart inside  ADF Faces Collection component like af:table or af:listView

This is a simple task to create normal chart but in case if we have to show table row record as a chart or graph then we have to change chart value and chart item value references so that it doesn't show all record but only values of that row

This post talks about these two requirements

1. Show same viewObject values as chart in af:table or af:listView
2. Show child viewObject values as chart in af:table or af:listView

Responsive UI with new Masonry Layout in ADF

What is Responsive UI and Why it is Important-

User interface or view of website or web application changes as the screen size of device changes
This type of UI is called Responsive and it is important to design responsive UI for your application because each device have different screen dimension and you can not restrict user to use any specific device to view your application . This is very basic requirement of web development that UI should look good on Mobile, PC, Tablet or any other device
