Sort indicator in table header [message #458164] Mon, 11 July 2005 13:30 Go to next message

Since there is no way to add a sort indicator I need to figure out a
work around. I can simply add an image to the table header. This sort of
works except it always shows on the left and the table header seems to
resize the image somehow and causes oddly shaped sort icons. Also I
can't also display any other image on the table header.

Another method I tried is actually creating a new image where I draw any
specified table header image, the header text and then add any sort
icon. I figured this should work if I then just disply the image in the
table header with no text. What I am seeing here is the strange reizing
of the image. The table header seems to try and shrink my image down to
something very narrow. Is there anyway to allow the image to take up the
entire table header space?

Any other solutions?

We are very close to releasing the code for this. It was supposed to go
into 3.1 but we ran out of time. Please add yourself to
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=43192 and stand by!

As for the other issues you are seeing (other than the image in the right
which is a known problem), can you enter a bug report with the code?

Steve:

I have tried to reproduce this and found it wasn't easy. I actually have
a table row with images in 2 different columns. Then when I try to place
the generated image in the table column it gets compressed. Is there any
limit or restriction on images in table cells or table columns? It seems
like I can't have an image in all theree places. 2 of the 3 work OK but
not all 3. I will keep working on a testcase.

Go ahead and try the code. It's released.

OK, I will try it but we probably can't use it. We will need to code
based on the SWT 3.1 which is released with Eclipse since we may run as
an Eclipse plugin and eventually in RAD when they support 3.1. And we
also need a way to indicate sort column order. I.E. we can sort a
primary column then secondary etc.
