How to hide the "Show All Hidden Columns" menu item in table

Postby sks » Fri Feb 13, 2009 2:48 pm

Hello,
A quick question, how can I hide the "Show All Hidden Columns" menu item that shows on the header of a Sortable table? I tried different things but didn't work. After I hide the Connection Id and Results Id, I don't want to let the user show them by selecting the "Show All Hidden Columns" menu item. The code and classes I'm using are:


Code: Select all
  TableHeaderPopupMenuInstaller installer = new TableHeaderPopupMenuInstaller(
        this.table);
    installer
        .addTableHeaderPopupMenuCustomizer(new AutoResizePopupMenuCustomizer());
    TableColumnChooserPopupMenuCustomizer tableColMenuCustomizer = new TableColumnChooserPopupMenuCustomizer();
    tableColMenuCustomizer.setHiddenColumns(new int[] { connectionIdColIndex,
        resultIdColIndex });
   
    installer.addTableHeaderPopupMenuCustomizer(tableColMenuCustomizer);


Thanks,
SKS

We value your request and will provide APIs in next release so you can customize your own popup menu. Will let you know when we release the version.

Sorry, but that doesn't really answer my question if there is a way to hide the "Show All Hidden Columns". There isn't any way currently?

I would appreciate a specific answer.


Thanks

You can already do that by overriding customizePopupMenu. Call super first then remove any menu item you want from the popupMenu. It is just right now you need to hard code which menu item is the Show All Hidden Columns menu item in order to remove it. In next release, we will setName on each menu item so that you can remove the menu item based on the name.

Hi

I have a similar issue but with "Set to default" menu
So I want to override its behaviour, I want to get the menu with the name CONTEXT_MENU_RESET_COLUMNS and change the actionPerformed action to a custom one.

The parameter popup of the method :customizePopupMenu does not seem to have an accesor to this menu
Any idea ?

Regards,
majid

Please give the following sample code a try.
Code: Select all
        installer.addTableHeaderPopupMenuCustomizer(new TableColumnChooserPopupMenuCustomizer() {
            @Override
            public void customizePopupMenu(JTableHeader header, JPopupMenu popup, int clickingColumn) {
                super.customizePopupMenu(header, popup, clickingColumn);
                // find the menu item here and reset its action as you design
            }
        });

Thanks for your reply
Here what I did, it is working fine
Code: Select all
  super.customizePopupMenu( header, popup, clickingColumn );

            Component[] components = popup.getComponents();
            for( Component component : components )
            {
                if( component instanceof JMenuItem
                    && CONTEXT_MENU_RESET_COLUMNS.equals( ( (JMenuItem) component ).getName() ) )
                {
                    JMenuItem resetMenu = (JMenuItem) component;
                    final javax.swing.Action action = resetMenu.getAction();
                    resetMenu.setAction( new AbstractAction(
                                                             getResourceString( CONTEXT_MENU_RESET_COLUMNS ) )
                    {
                        private static final long serialVersionUID = 1363294215712070529L;

                        public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
                        {
                            action.actionPerformed( e );
                            //doSomethingElse()
                        }
                    } );
                    break;
                }
            }

However, it sounds not really a proper way :(

Unfortunately that's the way although it doesn't look the cleanest.

Thanks for your feedback.

After hiding some columns of the table.
I want to generate some html file with only the remaining shown columns.
From the table itself, I don't have the information about which column is hidden/shown (without keeping a reference to TableColumnChooserPopupMenuCustomizer
Is there anyway to iterate over only shown columns ? (or utility method )

table.getColumnModel() will give you the TableColumnModel which has all the visible columns.

With this method, I can get the visible columns, mainly headers information, but I need the values in the rows as well.
