Hi all,

I'm looking to make something with similar functionality to that seen when
you are viewing your inbox in Pocket Outlook.

The items are listed something like this:

----------------------------------------------------
Item 1 title Field1 Field2
more details (A field that spans the entire column..
----------------------------------------------------
Item 2 title Field1 Field2
more details........................................
----------------------------------------------------
etc.

Any idea where I should start? I was thinking that maybe using Table and
extending TableItem might be a good start.. but then i read that TableItem
is not intended to be subclassed..

Does anyone have a suggestion on where to start to build such a control or
any idea where I can find a similar open source control for SWT?

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Hello, i have not exactly an idea for this, but i can give you a
interressant link :
www.swtplus.com/
It is several component derivated from the canvas class of swt and i
think that an exemple of list that you describe is present.
The code is free and downloadable.
I hope that is will be help you.
Good night !

Thanks for the reply,
Unfortunately it didn't help. I guess a better way to describe what i'm
looking for is a table that allows for table item that can span multiple
columns of a table (without separating) and can be separated over multiple
rows.

ie.
A single table item can be split over 2 lines and three columns as follows:

Col1 Col2
Col3
TableItem1 string1 string2
string3
string4whichisaverylongstringandiwanttocoverall3columns
end of TableItem1
TableItem2...etc

Any ideas?

The problem I have with KTable is that because I am developing for mobile
devices I want to minimise the footprint and unnecessary functionality.

But suppose it doesn't hurt to have a look..

Any other suggestions?
