ADF – How to get Selected Row when Row Selection is disabled

I am using jdev and due to some reasons, I have disabled row selection in my table. And I have given a check box for allowing the user to select a row. If Row selection is enabled, any row on which the user clicks becomes the current row and hence can be easily accessed in code. This post shows how to access a selected row when the row selection feature is disabled.

In short, when the user clicks on the checkbox, I want to get the row on which user has clicked the checkbox.
So I use the following code in my value change listener.

Method 1:

FacesCtrlHierNodeBinding changedRow = (FacesCtrlHierNodeBinding)linesTable.getRowData();

and u can get any attribute from the row using changedRow.getAttribute();

Method 2:

DCBindingContainer bindings = (DCBindingContainer)getBindings();
DCIteratorBinding iter = bindings.findIteratorBinding("LinesVO1Iterator");

List rowKey = (List)linesTable.getRowKey();
Key key = (Key)rowKey.get(0);
Row row = iter.findRowByKeyString(key.toStringFormat(true));

Method 3 :

BindingContext bc = BindingContext.getCurrent();
DCDataControl dc = bc.findDataControl("MyAMDataControl");
ApplicationModule am = (ApplicationModule)dc.getDataProvider();
ViewObject vo = am.findViewObject("LinesVO1");
Row row = vo.getRowAtRangeIndex(linesTable.getRowIndex());

Note : My table has a binding in this backing bean so that I can access it as linesTable variable.

    hii can i get the solution so that i want to disable the property of the VO iterator pointing at the first row in the rowset.

      Do you mean you dont want the first row as current row by default?
      In that case , please try vo.reset() which points to slot before first row and hence none of the rows will be current row.
