I've seen a couple other posting references but most are several years old.

Is there a way to set focus on a particular cell in a table? I've tried everything I can think of and had no luck.

Thanks.

Maybe org.eclipse.jface.viewers. FocusCellOwnerDrawHighlighter is what your looking for?
Here's an example:

Snippet036FocusBorderCellHighlighter in JFace snippets might be helpful
for your scenario.

At the swt level this is done with TableCursor, for an example see

Thanks for the replies. I've looked at some of the examples and I'll keep experimenting but I was hoping for a relatively simple way to programatically put the focus in a particular cell.

Say if I have 5 rows and 4 columns, put the focus (as if a mouse click) in row 2, column 3.

It doesn't seem like it should be that difficult.
