Is it possible to not display the selection anchor that appears using the selection layer?
It seem hard coded in SelectionLayerPainter, it is only possible to change the style.

Change the selection anchor style to look like the selection.

The problem with that approach is that since the border is still drawn, it will cover the external grid lines: http://imgur.com/qqXq7rR

But even worse is when we don't draw grid lines, then the border will cover part of the upper cell and there will be a noticeable height difference between the row header and the selected cell: http://imgur.com/IubNFaV

That's why I think there should be a way to not paint it at all.

This is the code I used for the examples:
    public static class MyTheme extends DefaultNatTableThemeConfiguration {

		public MyTheme() {
			// for no grid lines:
			renderBodyGridLines = false;
			renderColumnHeaderGridLines = false;
			renderRowHeaderGridLines = false;
			renderCornerGridLines = false;

			// selection background color
			defaultSelectionBgColor = GUIHelper.COLOR_RED;

			// anchor background color
			selectionAnchorSelectionBgColor = GUIHelper.COLOR_RED;

			// anchor internal border
			selectionAnchorBorderStyle = new BorderStyle(1, GUIHelper.COLOR_RED, LineStyleEnum.SOLID);

			// anchor selection border
			selectionAnchorGridBorderStyle = new BorderStyle(1, GUIHelper.COLOR_RED, LineStyleEnum.SOLID);
		}

	}

This is an open source project. Feel free to create a ticket and provide a patch via Gerrit.

In theory you simply need to add a new configuration parameter and skip the whole processing regarding the border painting in the SelectionLayerPainter.

After thinking more about this, there is no need to add such a configuration parameter. The SelectionLayerPainter only exists to render the selection borders. So you achieve your desired result by not using it.

selectionLayer.setLayerPainter(new GridLineCellLayerPainter());


By adding that simple line of code there will be no rendering of the selection borders.

That was what I did, but then I added a FillHandleConfiguration which take the selection layer and substitute his painter with a FillHandleLayerPainter which extends SelectionLayerPainter and so it paints the borders again.

In the end I managed with a messy solution, creating my own FillHandleLayerPainter and remaking the whole paint method.

It would be definitely better to just decide to not draw the borders.

You didn't mention the fill handle before.

As I said before, this is an open source project and we accept contributions.
