I want to conditionally display a h:commandLink in a dataTable row, based on a column in the DB for that row.

So for example, say the dataTable consists of three rows:

Col1, Col2, Col3
Hi, 0, NO
Hello, 1, NO
Hi, 0, YES

<h:commandLink styleClass="columnCommandLink" id="link25" action="#{dosomething}" rendered="#{var.col3IsYES}" >
<hutputText value=" [Delete]"></hutputText>
</h:commandLink>

I only want the delete link to show for the third element, so the output would look like this

Col1, Col2, Col3
Hi 0 NO [update]
Hello 1 NO [update]
Hi 0 YES [update] | [delete]

I have tried the above method - it doesnt work - it will just display or not display delete for ALL rows.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Ayan

use the "rendered" attribute of h:commandLink to show/hide the link

As I said in the post - the "rendered" column for commandLink will display or not display the link for ALL the rows in the table. It will not conditionally display the link, row by row, as I showed above. Maybe I am using it incorrectly?

I showed How I am using it above.
