Hello Everybody,
I started using TableEditingSupport for editing data in a TableViewer.
My TableEditingSupport looks about like the one Lars Vogel uses in his
RCP tutorial:
http://www.vogella.de/articles/EclipseJFaceTable/article.htm l#jfaceeditor

Now I have several Questions:

1. Is the CheckboxCellEditor supposed to work in RAP? In my case I do
not see a Checkbox.

2. Is it possible to navigate cell-wise? I did not use
SWT.FULL_SELECTION, though I can only navigate row-wise with the arrow
keys. How can I navigate from a cell to neighbour cell with the keyboard?

3. Is it possible to navigate to the next lower cell (same column, next
row) when leaving a cell with <ENTER>? The same is for navigating to the
right neighbour cell when a cell is left with <TAB>. This would more be
user-friendly because everyone expects this (Excel-Like) behaviour.

I appreciate any hints and prposals to achieve the described behaviour.

Regards,
Björn

The CheckboxCellEditor has no checkboxess in RCP either. Please read
the JavaDoc.

Did you have a look at the code in the controls demo (class
TableViewerTab)?

A starting point could be TableViewerEditor#create(). A very basic
example that makes use of this method can again be found in
TableViewerTab.

Hi Rüdiger,
thanks for your answer. Phew, that seems to be quite a confusing topic.
But with the controls demo I think I can dig my way through it :-)
