TableScrollPane Zoom In Zoom Out Feature

Postby gehatg » Fri Dec 02, 2011 3:45 am

Hallo,

This should be not that difficult to do, I have a request to allow the users to zoom in / out to the whole TableScrollPane. Exactly like what is happenning to Excel.

Maybe if you add some methods to TableUtils like.

Code: Select all
// where float amount +1.0 is MAX ZOOM IN, -1.0 MAX ZOOM OUT and 0 NO ZOOM???
TableUtil.zoomTable(tableScrollPane, float amount);


You can check out that feature in excel on bottom right corner (see image)
Do you think that we can have it soon??? The only difficulty I see there is with row and columns header fonts that you need to reacalculate their size every time, and this should be transparent from CellStyles, correct?

Thanks

Thanks for your suggestions. Comparing Excel, I believe TableScrollPane misses more features than this zoom one. And, of course Excel is more pricy. JIDE, as an component provider, never expects a plain TableScrollPane could be an alternate of excel indeed. For this specific feature, I don't think we would put it in our default package at this moment. You could develop it on your end by adjusting the cell style and row height dynamically. You would also need add a component in UI to control the zoom in/out behavior.

Thanks,
