Hi everyone

I'm working in a software project at the moment using SWT. Unfortunately
we ran into problems with some swt components. the problems are as follows:

In a table we want to merge rows and colums. is this possible in swt? we
also need multiple lines in one single cell? is there any way this could
be implemented? if not, are there any alternatives? (one alternative might
be using kTable, has anyone expiriences with this?)

and we also ran into problems using swt's tabletree. is it possible to
have the tree in any other column than the first one. so the expand /
collaps boxes would appear in lets say second or third column? are there
any alternatives as well if you can't use swt's table tree?

I'm thankful for every input.

with kind regards, Serge

Currently you can not merge cells in Table (vertically or horizontally) and
you can not have multiple lines in a row.

The TableTree does not support the +/- in any other column than the first
column. Also it is deprecated. Tree with TreeColumns also does not support
the +/- in any other column than the first column.

I have a similar problem (to the table) and am currently looking at Forms
and the TableWrapLayout.

It does allow wrapping and spanning but it is not a table as such.

Thanks for your fast answers.

In that case you might wanna take a look at KTable
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/ktable) That's probably what I'm gonna
use as well.

Well if the tabletree is depricated what would be an alternative then? is
there nothing else that allows me to have a tree in a table and that might
even let me choose where the table should appear (in which column I mean)
