Hello all,

I have the following question. Is there a possibility to overlay a table cell with a grid? I am having a URI image source queried conditionaly. I want to use this image as a background in the table cell and the grid cell to display the value. I want this two to be one in other, centered.

If you have a solution, please let me know.

Thank you very much.

So, within the table, you just want to change the background image for the cell and then display a text over it? This should be able to be done just by setting the background image dynamically and having your data element within the table cell with your text, like normal. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the issue.

Hi Michael,


Thank you for your answer. Problem is that I use a condition in the SQL query. I only retreive a cell value that based on the query condition will display an image (traffic light) in an image cell, URI type. What I want is to put one grid with 2 rows, one with value and the other with u.m. (this one will be a text cell with default value) over this png image. Table cell already has the desired dimensions so the image to fit properly.

Can you give me an example based on these requirements?

If you have any idea, please let me know.

Thank you again!

You should be able to put something like:

this.getStyle().backgroundImage = row["imageURL"];

in the onCreate of the table cell. Then, simply put a grid within the table cell. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the issue. Let me know.
