Suggestions for display of editable and non-editable cells in Grid [message #47160] Wed, 23 January 2008 07:02 Go to next message

Hello,

Can anyone give suggestions for my below points,

1.In grid as the default background is white; we can't differentiate
between editable and non-editable cells till we select the cell.
So what would be the better GUI approach to represent editable and
non-editable cells?

2.What is the better GUI approach to display default values in grid
(editable/non-editable)? Default values are values that the user has not
entered but a possible value he could enter in the cell.

Thanks & Regards,
Chethan

Hi Chethan,

If you wrote your own cell renderer, you could put watermarks or other
decorations inside the cell to denote any special information.

Hello Chris,

Thanks for the answer...

I am already painting the background and setting images,text in columns
using 'GridColumnLabelProvider', which does the same work as cell
renderers i feel.

Is this cell renderer different from 'GridColumnLabelProvider'? If same,
which will be the better one to use in Grid viewer, cell renderers or
'GridColumnLabelProvider'?

Regards,
Chethan
