Hi,

I'm trying to implement my own filtercomparator but it seems that is never gets called.
When I debug the Example "FilterRowGridExample" at line 94 the getIngnorecaseComparator() is called so it should be registered - shouldn't it?
........
// Configure custom comparator on the rating column
configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(FilterRowConfigAttributes.FILTER_COMPARATOR,
getIngnorecaseComparator(),
DisplayMode.NORMAL,
FilterRowDataLayer.FILTER_ROW_COLUMN_LABEL_PREFIX + 2);
..........

private static Comparator<?> getIngnorecaseComparator() {
return new Comparator<String>() {
public int compare(String o1, String o2) {
System.out.println(o1+"/"+o2);
return o1.compareToIgnoreCase(o2);
}
};
};

Now I would expect that the compare Method ist called everytime I enter a value in the filterrow for rating and press enter. But it isn't.

Even if I completly remove the lines for configRegistry.registerConfigAttribute(... the row gets filtered correctly. So it seems that the FilterComparator isn't used at all.

Is this a bug or do I simply missunderstand the concept?
How can I implement a CustomFilter for one of the rows?

Thanx
Thomas

PS: I'm using Nattable Version 1.2.0.201410270901, GlazedList 1.9.0, Java 1.8.0_25

from looking into the code it seems the comparator is not used because a TextMatcherEditor is used since a simple text matching is performed.
Using another match mode that accepts matchers like >, < etc. would create a ThresholdMatcherEditor that makes use of the comparator.

So if you want to name it a bug then it is a bug in the example.

thank you for the quick answer.

What I would like to achive is a CustomFilter that gets a value from a Dropdown and compares it to the fieldvalue.
The Dropdown contains ("IET","DO","D","O","I","E","T")
=> if I choose "IET" all rows containig either I,E or T in the column should show up. If I choose "I" only the rows with "I" should show up.....

Unfortunately I can't find any example or documentation on that topic and since the FILTER_COMPARATOR isn't used I have no clue how to do that.

A comparator is used for sorting in Java. So the filter comparator is intended to sort the filter result and has nothing to do with filtering itself.

What you are looking for is an excel like filter, since there should be a dropdown with multi selection. If you want to use that have a look at the corresponding examples in the Tutorial examples section.

Oh, just saw you don't want multi selection. In that case I guess you need to implement a custom IFilterStrategy that transforms the value into several single values on apply. Extending the default might be worth a look.

Indeed I would have liked that for this particular column only, but what I saw I have to use Excelfilters on all columns which is not what I want.

Thank you for the hint. Do you know if there is an example for that?

No there is no example for that. But there are internal classes that extend DefaultGlazedListsFilterStrategy for the combo boxes or for adding static filters

Great. I will have a look at these classes.
Thanx und schönen Tag noch
