I have a complex table design that I'd like to implement with SWT/JFace,
but I'm not sure its possible, any hints on how to accomplish this would
be appreciated.

We need a table where the contents of some columns is more complicated
than a single text string or image. For instance, in one column we may
need to display a set of radio buttons arranged vertically. In another
we need to display a 4x4 matrix of numbers, a table within a cell.

In Swing I could accomplish this by creating a JPanel based component
that displays the cell contents I want and then using that component as
a renderer for the table.

I'm wondering if there is a way to do this with SWT using TableEditor
where I could place a composite with my non-trivial cell layout over the
table cell to get the same effect.

Are there issues with trying to use TableEditor for an entire column of
a table that may contain 100+ rows of data? What about multiple columns
in this table.

Am I barking up the wrong tree, is there another way to accomplish this?

Thanks
Chris

See the following snippet (Placing arbitary controls in a table):
