AutoFilterTableHeader wrong rendering

Postby dgolesn » Fri Aug 31, 2012 5:38 am

Hi,

I have a SortableTable with some customized renderers (e.g. a Boolean is rendered to "wahr" (german for "true") or a resource key value is rendered for the users language)
The renderers are set to the column later (after UI creation), because we are using a binding framework (JGoodies) with descriptors per cell (rest is generated)

I have added an AutoTableTableHeader like this:

Code: Select all
        SortableTable comp = new SortableTable();
        /* autofilter header */
        AutoFilterTableHeader tableHeader = new AutoFilterTableHeader(comp.getColumnModel()) {
            private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

            @Override
            protected void customizeAutoFilterBox(AutoFilterBox box) {
                super.customizeAutoFilterBox(box);
                box.setAllowCustomFilter(false);
            }
        };
        tableHeader.setAutoFilterEnabled(true);
        tableHeader.setUseNativeHeaderRenderer(true);
        tableHeader.setDefaultRenderer(new TableHeaderRenderer(true));
        comp.setTableHeader(tableHeader);
        // the renderers are set later in the binding step


First problem is, that the #customizeAutoFilterBox is never called.
Second (main) problem is, that the autoFilter combobox contains values that are different to the table (resource key instead of the rendered value).

How can I force the autofilter to use the normal rendered cell values? Or how can I add my own renderers for the autofilter combobox entries?

Thanks!

1. AutoFilterTableHeader#customizeAutoFilterBox() was not invoked because you used the native mode by tableHeader.setUseNativeHeaderRenderer(true). There are two different implementations on AutoFilterTableHeader. One is called native, and the other is non-native. AutoFilterBox is only used in non-native mode.
2. Please register an ObjectConverter by ObjectConverterManager#registerConverter(). It will take effect both on table cell and AutoFilterTableHeader. ObjectConverter is designed to do this kind of job, converting an object to string. While renderer is designed to do many other stuff. And they have different scope. You can get more detail info about ObjectConverter, Renderer, Editor from our developer manual. It can be found at http://www.jidesoft.com/products/JIDE_G ... _Guide.pdf.

1. Does that mean, I have to use the always-visible autofilter button in the table header if I want to customize the autofilter entries?
Is there another way to customize the autofilter entries (e.g. removing "custom...", adding my own filter, etc.) but keeping the #setUseNativeHeaderRenderer(true) behavior?
2. Thanks, that works now

In native mode, you need to provide a customized UI delegate to achieve your goal. Please give the attached demo a try.

Thanks,
