 As an example suppose we need to have list of cars information to some of the entities in our application.

<t:dataList id="datalist" style="myStyle"

 When layout is simple,the list of cars displayed as follows:


<t:dataList id="datalist" style="myStyle"

 When layout is unorderedList,the list of cars displayed as follows:

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Cadillac
  • Chevrolet
  • Chrysler
  • Dodge
  • Ford
  • GMC
  • Honda
  • Hummer
  • Hyundai

<t:dataList id="datalist" style="myStyle"

  3. Cadillac
  4. Chevrolet
  5. Chrysler
  6. Dodge
