Hi,

we have successfully ported a fairly large RCP application to RAP. The application makes heavy use of the Nebula Grid mainly because our users require spreadsheet like behaviour.

The port went pretty smooth and user feedback is generally positive but the big stumbling block in production acceptance is the lack of the multi-cell selection feature and therefore the lack of a convenient copy and paste of selected grid data.

So my questions are:
Is porting the multi-cell selection feature from RCP to RAP feasible or are there known technical issues which would make it very difficult?
If it is feasible any hints were we should start looking in the RAP code base?
Alternatively, anyone out there who is intimately familiar with the RAP code interested in doing this on a paid basis (of course code to be donated back to Eclipse)?

Thanks

Manuel

Hi Manuel,
RAP Nebula Grid port does not "paint" the Grid like in the original code. It uses the same client-side JS implementation as Table and Tree. This is the most complicated widget in RAP and adding support for cell selection is not an easy and fast task. It's a completely new development on both client and server.
We already have an enhancement request about it [1].
About copy/paste functionality - generic clipboard support is not available in RAP as RAP is a distributed environment [2]. Probably in some widget/cases (like in cell copy/paste) we could mimic this functionality on the server only.

If you are interested in sponsored development, please contact us at

Hi Ivan,

thanks for the prompt response.

As recommended I have sent an e-mail to info at eclipsesource com regarding the possibility of sponsored development.
