This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm currently engaged with developing an AWT Table, which can contain editable cells, and i'm stuck technically in how to enable scrolling. In horizontal scrolling scenario, i just want to synchronize scrolling the cells data area and scrolls the header area. In vertical scrolling scenario, i want the header row area to stay on top, like the spreadsheet header.
I assume the correct way to enable scrolling in AWT is to do the following : 1 create one panel for header at the top 2 create another panel for the data cells 3 add an invisible horizontal scrollbar for the header panel 4 add visible horizontal and vertical scrollbar for the data panel 5 when scrolled vertically, the header panel is unaffected 6 when scrolled horizontally, the header panel also scrolls, which updates his own graphics
And i have no idea how i'm gonna implement step 6, about how to synchronize the horizontal scrolling. Anyone got a simple example ? Or perhaps there are easier ways to do this ?
