    Drawable

    public class TableCursor
    extends Canvas
    A TableCursor provides a way for the user to navigate around a Table using the keyboard. It also provides a mechanism for selecting an individual cell in a table.

    For a detailed example of using a TableCursor to navigate to a cell and then edit it see http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.swt.git/tree/examples/org.eclipse.swt.snippets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet96.java .

    Styles:
    BORDER
    Events:
    Selection, DefaultSelection

    • Constructor Detail

      • TableCursor

        public TableCursor​(Table parent,
                           int style)
        Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent table and a style value describing its behavior and appearance.

        The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

        Parameters:
        parent - a Table control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
        style - the style of control to construct
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
        • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

      • addSelectionListener

        public void addSelectionListener​(SelectionListener listener)
        Adds the listener to the collection of listeners who will be notified when the user changes the receiver's selection, by sending it one of the messages defined in the SelectionListener interface.

        When widgetSelected is called, the item field of the event object is valid. If the receiver has SWT.CHECK style set and the check selection changes, the event object detail field contains the value SWT.CHECK. widgetDefaultSelected is typically called when an item is double-clicked.

        Parameters:
        listener - the listener which should be notified when the user changes the receiver's selection
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the listener is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver

      • setVisible

        public void setVisible​(boolean visible)
        Description copied from class: Control
        Marks the receiver as visible if the argument is true, and marks it invisible otherwise.

        If one of the receiver's ancestors is not visible or some other condition makes the receiver not visible, marking it visible may not actually cause it to be displayed.

        Overrides:
        setVisible in class Control
        Parameters:
        visible - the new visibility state
      • removeSelectionListener

        public void removeSelectionListener​(SelectionListener listener)
        Removes the listener from the collection of listeners who will be notified when the user changes the receiver's selection.
        Parameters:
        listener - the listener which should no longer be notified
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the listener is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
