Table Model

The DataManager contains a default support to bind a TableModel to the element. You can make the data observable using the getTableModel method. The getTableModel method also accept extra properties or properties with computed value that can be added to the TableModel. In the view, you can create a simple view by using the bindings getTableModel

Then the model is bound with the element using the bindTo.
