hi people

i need to set a different backgrount color in odd and even rows in my table

i have found this code snip :

private void fillTableColor(Table table){
TableItem item;
if (table != null)
{
for (int index = 0; index < table.getItemCount(); index+=2)
{
item = (TableItem)tableViewer.getTable().getItems()[index];
item.setBackground(new Color(null, 245, 245, 245));
}
}
}

but i dont like the idea that i have to "paint" my table again and again
after poppulate it with data

is it any other approach available


thanx

We have similar problems. One possible answer that we ran across that
might work for you is explained at:

http://wiki.schubart.net/wiki/wiki.phtml?title=How_to_Color_ Rows_in_a_TableViewer&printable=yes

In this article, an undocumented feature is exploited to set the back
color of rows. It involves implementing both ITableLabelProvider AND
IColorProvider in the label provider class used by your JFace table
viewer.
