How to change how a table item is drawn on the screen [message #443117] Sun, 19 September 2004 03:10 Go to next message

I am currently evaluating changing my code from Swing to SWT. But I find
that SWT is fairly primitive
and cumbersome. I don't really know enough yet to be sure. In Swing I have
a table that uses a custom
table renderer to draw a colored circle around text in a cell. How can
this be implemented in SWT
without going to a large amount of trouble. In Swing this is fairly easy
to do.

SWT tables are based in the native controls for the platform and don't
provide support for renders. Can you present your information in another
way, perhaps changing the color or the font of the table item?

No, unfortunately this means that SWT sucks for my puposes. My native
platform is Mac and I know
that supports changing renders and I have complete control over a native
Table control on the Mac.
This tells me that SWT just simply does not support the native interface
very well. I need flexibility on
all platforms however. Thats the point of using Java isn't it!!! Thanks
for the info though I will simply
stick with the best environment SWING.
