Nebula components questions [message #573488] Tue, 02 January 2007 14:37

I am wondering if there is an online table that compares the features of Grid,
CTableTree and CompositeTable? I'm not sure which is the right one to use or
the features/limitations of each.

I'm also wondering if Nebula components have their API javadoc online
somewhere, like other packages?
http://help.eclipse.org/help32/nftopic/org.eclipse.platform. doc.isv/reference/api/index.html

Finally, I wonder if these nebula components can use native headers so they
look native on different OSes? I notice in the screenshots the headers are
not native. Is there a way to use the XP looking TableHeaders on XP, and the
MacOSX ones on OSX and GTK theme aware ones on GTK? Maybe this requires SWT
to make a Tableheader class (will this be in 3.3? Will nebula offer options to
use it?)

I'm particularly looking for the right control to use for a stock tracking
tree grid, which updates very regularly, has a lot of rows and leaves, and
re-sorts very regularly, so all these updates need to be fast and smart
without excess screen redraws (don't redraw things that don't move due to
re-sort every second, just the things that do). Also, are SWT-Tree features
like a header sort indicator and sorted column colors, alternating row colors
(like OS native which really help readability) supported on any of these
controls?

Thanks
