Requirement: Let us assume we have a Table Filter applied to our Departments table.

In the Table Filter text box we can type some value and hit enter to filter the Departments table data.

Now, I want to have an icon, on the header of one of the column, on click of which it should clear all the Filter Criteria that was applied to the Departments table data.

Sample screen is shown below:

Solution: For solution of the above requirement follow the steps as shown below:

Step 1: Create an Oracle ADF Fusion Web Application.

Create Business Components from Tables for the Departments table in the Model project.

Create a demo.jspx in the View Controller project

Step 2: Drag and drop DepartmentsVO1 from the Data Controls panel to the demo.jspx page as a table.

Make sure that Enable Filtering option is checked.

Step 3: Drag and drop a column from the Component Palette as a first column of the Departments table.

Set the headerText=”Sl No”, and rowHeader=”true”.

Here the rowHeader property as true will make the icon visible in the column header. And on click of this icon it will clear all the Filter conditions that was applied to the Departments table data.

Various other values for the rowHeader property are as shown below:

Drag and drop af:outputText inside the above created af:column and set value=”#{vs.index+1}”. This is just to generate the Serial Number of the Row.

Thus, the complete demo.jspx is shown below:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<jsp:root xmlns:jsp="" version="2.1" xmlns:f=""
    < contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/>
        <af:document title="demo.jspx" id="d1">
            <af:messages id="m1"/>
            <af:form id="f1">
                <af:table value="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.collectionModel}" var="row"
                          emptyText="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.viewable ? 'No data to display.' : 'Access Denied.'}"
                          rowSelection="single" fetchSize="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.rangeSize}"
                          filterModel="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1Query.queryDescriptor}" filterVisible="true"
                          queryListener="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1Query.processQuery}" varStatus="vs" id="t1">
                    <af:column id="c5" headerText="Sl No" rowHeader="true">
                        <af:outputText value="#{vs.index+1}" id="ot5"/>
                    <af:column sortProperty="#{}" filterable="true"
                               sortable="true" headerText="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.DepartmentId.label}" id="c1">
                        <af:outputText value="#{row.DepartmentId}"
                                       shortDesc="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.DepartmentId.tooltip}" id="ot1">
                            <af:convertNumber groupingUsed="false"
                    <af:column sortProperty="#{}" filterable="true"
                               sortable="true" headerText="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.DepartmentName.label}"
                        <af:outputText value="#{row.DepartmentName}"
                                       shortDesc="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.DepartmentName.tooltip}" id="ot2"/>
                    <af:column sortProperty="#{}" filterable="true"
                               sortable="true" headerText="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.ManagerId.label}" id="c3">
                        <af:outputText value="#{row.ManagerId}"
                                       shortDesc="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.ManagerId.tooltip}" id="ot3">
                            <af:convertNumber groupingUsed="false"
                    <af:column sortProperty="#{}" filterable="true"
                               sortable="true" headerText="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.LocationId.label}" id="c4">
                        <af:outputText value="#{row.LocationId}"
                                       shortDesc="#{bindings.DepartmentsVO1.hints.LocationId.tooltip}" id="ot4">
                            <af:convertNumber groupingUsed="false"

Save all and run the application. Thus, the ran application is shown below:

Let me provide the ManagerId value in the filter as 20% and the LocationId value as 1700. Hit on the enter button of your keyboard. Thus, the filtered data is shown below.

Click on the Icon at the header of the Sl No Column. and with that we can see the Filter that was applied to the Departments table data is cleared off and we can now see the unfiltered data as shown below.

Hence, the solution to our requirement.
