Integrating the easiest example of using NatTable into an eclipse plug-in, the export to excel function via key "CTRL+e" is not working.

Do you have any idea, why?

As plug-in dependencies I added:
- net.sourceforge.nattable.core
- new.sourceforge.nattable.extension.poi
- org.apache.poi (the poi-osgi plug-in)

I have to admit that I haven't used all of the features of NatTable yet. Smile But I'm not quite sure if simply adding plugin dependencies will tell the NatTable to export with POI.
Did you add the configuration for exporting to the example? I have seen that not all examples make use of this, so I suppose the example you are talking about isn't using the POI extension too.

Try to add the following configuration to your example:
natTable.addConfiguration(new AbstractRegistryConfiguration() {
	public void configureRegistry(IConfigRegistry configRegistry) {
		configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(ILayerExporter.CONFIG_ATTRIBUTE, new HSSFExcelExporter());
	}
});


Hope this helps,
Dirk

The same example doesn't make use of this configuration. The default configuration of NatTable (DefaultGridLayerConfiguration) defines an excel export binding on key event CTRL+e. This works great on running as a java application but as soon as embedded into a plug-in, this is no longer working.

Adding your configuration to the NatTable is without any effect.

Is your plugin running in the eclipse ide? Ctrl+E is an already defined shortcut there. So you'll need to override that shortcut I guess. But I haven't looked at that before.

The key combination is already in use, that's true. I had to define a context for the view, a key combination and a command to run the excel export. Now I try to override the default key combination by an unused comb.

Do you have an example code of how you did this? Setting up a different shortcut key for the export to excel in eclipse plugin?
