I am using the default Table Viewer Snippets Snippet059CellNavigationIn33 or Snippet058CellNavigationIn34. snippets/Eclipse%20JFace%20Snippets/org/eclipse/jface/snippe ts/viewers/ snippets/Eclipse%20JFace%20Snippets/org/eclipse/jface/snippe ts/viewers/

I changed the code as follows to enable cell editing when any character is entered on the key board.

ColumnViewerEditorActivationStrategy actSupport = new ColumnViewerEditorActivationStrategy(v) {
protected boolean isEditorActivationEvent(
ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent event) {
return event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.TRAVERSAL
|| event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.MOUSE_DOUBLE_CLICK_SELECTI ON
|| (event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.KEY_PRESSED && event.keyCode == SWT.F2)
|| (event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.KEY_PRESSED && event.keyCode == SWT.CR)
|| (event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.KEY_PRESSED && event.keyCode > 31 && event.keyCode < 127)
|| event.eventType == ColumnViewerEditorActivationEvent.PROGRAMMATIC;

Now with the above code change, when ever a cell is highlighted in the table widget and any key is entered on the key board the table cell is put into edit mode but I am getting a beep sound. What does the beep in this case trying to tell me ? Any way I can avoid the beep ? Is this a feature or bug ?

Thanks in advance for providing your thoughts.
