I'm interested in using KTable to support a display where there is one
cell per row, and that cell is rendered as an SWT Composite. I've been
looking at the cell renderer structure in KTable and I'm not sure this can
be made to work.

Has anyone done something similar, or is this just a dead end?

Thanks,

Patrick Paulin

Hi,

I have no experience doing this - but I don't think that this would be a
problem.

I will try this with the existing cellrenderer interface and report
progress.

regards,
Lorenz

Hi,

Did a simple test - it works but getting the event handling correct is a
small nightmare.
It would probably better to implement the desired behavior by drawing
the appropriate controls directly...

I would be interested in the use case for that - in what situations
would it help?

regards,
Lorenz

Hi,

I'm interested in this way as well. I'm a Sybase PowerBuilder programmer
and
I'm get used to DataWindow which able to give you a very flexible way to
display
your data. Free style which mean you can place your column in anyway as
you like
and the grid is there if you prefer a very basic table style...

Thanks and i hope KTable able to do that. I like KTable very much!

Thanks for your all hardwork!

Hi Lorenz,

Thanks for looking into this. My use case is that I'd like to display
multiple (and very wide) diagrams for a set of financial instruments (e.g.
stocks). Each diagram is actually a GEF viewer, which requires a composite
parent. The diagram for each instrument would be displayed in a KTable
row. The user could resize rows to view the diagrams at a larger size.

If you're finding this difficult, I'm definitely going to look for a
different approach. I'll probably wind up placing the diagrams right onto
a composite and allow the user to resize them in some other way (zoom
button, or something like that).

If you think of a way to do this in KTable, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
again for your help.

Hi Lorenz/Patrick/Evan,


I am also in need of Composite cell renderer for KTable.
I wish to put ScrolledForm (or any other SWT widget) in each KTable cell.

Any sample code for this would be of great help to me.



Thanks,
Swapnil
