Description Jiri Rechtacek 2003-03-03 16:04:37 UTC
HIE team, please provide UI specification for
TreeTableView including: new features for 4.0,
keyboard navigation/updading values, sorting,
selection mode, etc.
Comment 1 Jiri Rechtacek 2003-03-03 16:06:04 UTC
pls. provide at the soonest phase of 4.0 development cycle
Comment 2 Tim Lebedkov 2003-03-13 12:58:53 UTC
It is not possible to hide/move first column in a 
TreeTableView. I would like to rearrange columns in my 
task list (tasklist module) like this:

Done | Description
 X   | First task 
 0   | Second task

JTreeTable from the Swing Connection (with source code) 
supports this.

A few generic items for consideration in the UI spec please. I am 
sure this spec would get a lot of input from the OpenIDE community if 
a thread was started.

1) Keeping the node tree column visible whilst scrolling the property
columns to the right (imagine a node with 20, 50 + columns). 
2) Selecting arbitrary regions of the table and allowing cutting and 
pasting of their string values into the clip-board for use with 
spreadsheet applications for instance. 
3) Freely selecting cells using the cursor keys (selecting columns as 
well as rows)
4) Editing the selected cells directly from a legal key-stroke event 
by default(selecting with a mouse each time is cumbersome if editing 
many values)
