Hi all,

Has anybody tried to use KTable in Eclipse Forms ? What does it look like ?
I need to be certain that KTable looks like standard SWT tables when used
in Eclipse Forms.

Regards,

Setya

Hi,

Using KTable in Eclipse Forms should be no problem.
Regarding the look:
Since it is a custom control, you can exactly define what it should look
like (implement your own renderers).
In Forms you probably will want to use the flat header style - or draw
it more platform-like. Friedrich Kupzog pasted some code that can serve
as a base for a WinXP-like table header. Check the thread "Ktable too
slow - Any alternative" (13.12.2005)

Thanks Lorenz for the response,

Does it mean that I should use different renderers on every platform to
achieve the native look ? If so, this is so unfortunate since I don't have
skills nor knowledge to do custom widget drawing.

Thanks for the pointers, but what if I change the Windows theme to classic
?

BTW, I love KTable because of its architecture that's really like Swing's
JTable, but for the look I think we need some more work.

The flat style is designed to look acceptable on all platforms -
especially in an environment created using Eclipse Forms.

If you want a 100% real native look, you would have to implement special
renderers, or stick with the SWT table.
I would propose checking the examples that come with ktable on different
platforms and then decide if the look is suitable.

Well if so, there's nothing I should worry about, since I'll use Eclipse
Forms anyway.
I'm just afraid that KTable will not look like the rest of the SWT Widgets
when rendered in Eclipse Forms, since I've invested my time to migrate
from SWT Table to KTable, but not yet try it on Eclipse Forms.
