SWT Table with large number of columns does not display column headers [message #723873] Fri, 09 September 2011 18:20 Go to next message

Hello,

I have an SWT Table with large number of columns (500). With some predefined column width (100), I can only see some 300 columns' headers, rest look blank. If I resize to reduce the column width, I can see more columns. There is no problem in seeing the actual data though. This is observed only on Windows (XP). On Linux, I dont see this issue.

Is there any workaround or solution to this?

Is there a defect already filed? Can I have the number please?

Thanks,
Ravi

Thanks, Lakshmi. Looks like the bug is still open.

I found another old 72293 one which is marked as RESOLVED WONTFIX.

Not sure if this will be pursued further.

Hi,
As mentioned in the bugs this is a OS limitation/bug, hence I don't think it could be fixed in SWT.

Actually Tables and Trees are intended to show metadata,hence it would be a bad practice to show more no of columns in a table or tree..
instead the table should show important(sortable or filter columns only) columns and on selection your may show the detailed view in a form kind of GUI.

why, mr. Anderson, why, why do you persist?
Because I Choose To.

I agree it is an OS limitation/defect and cannot be fixed in SWT, but was hoping to see if the Eclipse developer team pursue this further by opening a vendor OS defects.
