    Highlights of the JideFX Beta Release (3 of 3)

    by  • June 11, 2013

    The last post in this series, before I get back to coding, is the validation. The idea of a validation framework (at least in Java) can trace back to JGoodies Karsten’s validation framework, alongside his work on the data binding. JavaFX has a great data binding framework. However the validation is still not anywhere...

    Highlights of the JideFX Beta Release (2 of 3)

    by  • June 11, 2013

    Next one in the series I would like to talk about is the decoration feature. As I said, this release is about the foundation for future JideFX. It applies to this one. I really think this feature should be part of the JavaFX. What is “decoration”? The “decorating” technique is to put a node...

    CellStyle, way to go!

    by  • February 27, 2012

    Recently I ran into a post on StackOverflow about how to color the table cells depending on the value in the table model. In the post, I am very sorry to see that he had to write so many lines of code to implement such a simple requirement and yet had trouble to get...

    Analysing code size using JIDE TreeMap

    by  • January 18, 2012

    One of the visualization techniques that people ignored is the treemap. A lot of our customers used our group table or pivot grid to display the data. What you don’t know is the same data can also be visualized in a treemap. And it will be more effective for your users to find out...

    A great enhancement to the CellStyle feature in JIDE Grids
