In Nat Table, we are working on color coding the sub expressions in a large expression for better readability. We want to display each sub-expression with different color like in Microsoft excel.
We have seen coloring the entire cell but we wanted to know whether coloring a partial string within a cell is possible.

IIUC you want to format substrings inside a cell. That is only possible by using the RichTextCellPainter in the NatTable Nebula extension. Using this painter you can add HTML markups in the text which get interpreted accordingly by the painter.

But as of now the RichTextCellPainter does not support all features the default TextPainter has, e.g. text wrapping etc. But if that is not required the RichTextCellPainter is a good choice.
