Subject Re: basic questions about common table renderers
Date Sun, 16 May 2010 12:27:38 GMT
I assume that the button needs to be interactive (i.e. pushing it will trigger an action)?
If so, you probably want to use TablePane rather than TableView. Cell renderers don't support
any kind of user interaction - they are simply used to "rubber stamp" content into a table
view. In other words, they are used for presentation, not interaction. TablePane is for laying
out components, such as buttons, and functions more like an HTML table.
