My usecase is the following:
In a nebula grid column a footer text can be set. When the column is small and the footer text is long, then the text is augmented with ellipsis in RCP and is clipped in RAP.
Sometimes it would be convenient, if a footer text would be allowed to span accross multiple columns.

In RCP such a functionality could be acchieved with a GridFooterRenderer.
But in RAP I find currently no way of doing this, except for a custom footer component.

Are there plans for a Grid API for Footer, which is similarly usable from both RCP and RAP?
(Maybe something like setFooterComposite(Composite c), setFooterSpanColumns(GridColumn... spanCols), setFooterAlignment(int alignment))

Hi Joachim,
custom renderers are not supported in RAP port of Nebula Grid. We don't
have plans to extend the Grid API for Footer in a close future.
Nevertheless, any valuable contribution in this field is welcomed.
Best,
Ivan
