  1. Create a container that can load lazily from sources

    With huge datasets it is not good to load everything into the jvm at once. We need a container that can load lazily from various sources. I suggest that the container should take in an interface implementation telling it how to get more entries and telling it the size of the whole data set. getObjectById, sorting possibilities, filters etc would also be nice.

        • Animateable components

          The current components are pretty static, once rendered. Animations (in addition to the Notification's fade in/out) would bring some zing to the UI. There are also numerous usability gains in animating with taste.

            • Theme customizing documentation improvement.

              I'm studying themes, and existing themes are simple to use, but looks complex to make. The Vaadin book has a big chapter on CSS and a very small page on Vaadin themes.
              The Theme sample application shows how to use existing theme.
              I found no big enough example or tutorial on how to customize an existing theme (other than change the body background color).
              Example of more complex things that would be worth documenting: how to change the appearance of buttons (by only providing new bitmaps if possible).
              I'd like to understand existing theme betters without having to understand them…

              • Ability to create multi-level right-click actions

                Currently one can add right click actions to e.g. a tree or a table. The problem with the actions is that they can only be in one level, so an action cannot have sub-actions. This limitation makes it really hard to create user friendly and efficient action menus.

                    A paging menu would be nice to allow for display of page sets available and number of results required within a table. For example

                    • OptionGroup.setItemDescription(...)

                      I would be useful to assign an individual tooltip to each option of an OptionGroup (radio buttons).

                      • Create automatic scaffolding for working with datasources

                        Editing tables with fields or forms with fields is not enough. I need to link objects between them: automatic drop-downs or radio-buttons for one-to-one or many-to-one, multi-select or checkboxes for one-to-many and many-to-many. Make sure that when read-only a meaningful format is produced.

                          • Link that looks like a Button

                            Buttons can look like links and it's great.
                            I sometimes need links that look like Buttons (and I don't want to go to photoshop to create bitmaps ;-) or to digg my css.

                            myLink.setStyleName("button");

                            This would apply use the same layout as the current theme when creating a button.

                              • Menubar alignment

                                It would be nice if Vaadin had the ability to justify top level menu items in a menubar. For example, we have a requirement that the "Administration" menu item be right justified to keep it separate from other menu items. Other menu items such as File, View etc., are default left justified.

                                • Edit table cells like in Google Spreadsheets

                                  Large editable tables are very slow when hundred of editable fields are shown.

                                  The table must show the editor component only when the cell is focused.

                                  • Enable to set the style attribute of the tag produced by a Component

                                    In many situations, I don't like to create a style in the separate CSS file, and to reference it in my code with .addStyleName("myStyle").
                                    But I can live with it.
                                    Except when I write a reusable add-on. I don't wanna create client-side widgets just to have a CssLayout resulting in <div ... style="anything I want">. And I don't want to require the users of the add-on to modify their CSS because of me.
                                    It would be simple to add a method Component.setInnerStyle(String), and I'm sure a lot of Vaadin users would use it.

                                    • Extensible components made easier

                                      Currently it's pretty hard to properly extend components. Some times you get lucky, and you can fix things with just a simple subclass, but other times, even seemingly trivial changes require a full fork of a component.

                                        • addActionHandler() for TextField

                                          Why can't I add an action handler for a textfield? Form creation... Search fields...
