variable column length

2003-03-27 09:02

Hi Teodor,

I want to creat e generic tool that will display different tables. The problem is that in advance I do not know what will be the length and the data type of the columns.

Ex.1 id - length 10 | name - length 30 | description - length 100

or it could be the other way around. So I cannot use static textField width. The of every field will change with each table.

For data types I guess I can always use String as field type.


Do you have any ideas how to deal with variable column width? I have used expand on overflow but it works only downwards, while in my case the fields have to expand to the right if we assume similair approach.


Thank you for your help.
