[Grid] cellSelection and rowSelection [message #63172] Tue, 28 April 2009 20:03 Go to next message

Hi,

i'd like to have both:

1. the selected rows should be rendered how it is done when
cellSelectionEnabled is disabled (in my case blue background of the
selected row - macos)
2. the selected cell should be renderd as if cellSelectionEnabled is set
to true.

In other cases i used the FocusCellOwnerDrawHighlighter which couldn't not
be used here, right?

Could you please point me to the right direction?

Cheers,

Thomas E.-E.

yes this is right - this is special to SWT/JFace and won't (ever) work
in Grid/Nebula.

But I thought our special internal classes ensure that the cell
selection it restored as needed. I'm not 100% sure what you are aiming at.

i am aiming at giving the user (visual) support which row (and ideally
which column - like crosslines) he is traversing/editing at the moment.
Hence our table is very broad and deep one could loose orientation very
quickly. Does this sound reasonable?

Hi,

So why don't turn on cell-selection in the grid? JFace has to emulate
this concept whereas CellSelection is "natively" implemented in the Grid
simply by calling setCellSelectionEnabled(true) - or do I don't get your
use case?

that's what i did. But when i switch setCellSelectionEnabled on, the
selected cell is marked as focused, which is fine. But what i miss in that
case is the marked row (blue background). Ideally i'd like to mark the
corresponding column as well (like crosslines).

I'd like to have "the best out of two worlds" ...

Ok. You can simply solve this writing your own CellRenderer and setting
it on the Grid-Instance. Attached to this mail you find a modified
version of the default cell-renderer which draws the crosslines :-)

Hi Tom,
Unfortunately the file does not show up in the forum posts. Although it says "This is a multi part message in MIME format " , the attachment is not visible. I tried searching in the forum post using the Safari and Firefox browser but the attachment is not visible.

Hi Tom,

I do not see any place to download the file you claim you can see through Thunderbird. If you can, would you mind explaining how to set up Thunderbird to work with this forum to allow us to download the file. Otherwise, please feel free to upload the document somewhere else; it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
