B4A Library [Class] Flexible Table

This thread will be used by Erel, Melamoud and myself to discuss / post new releases of the Table class.

The table class is a flexible UI component that enable scrollable table like UI, with sortable columns, multiselect rows etc

the table is very efficient, maintaining labels only for visible rows

old thread with details : http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/addi...view-supports-tables-any-size.html#post110901

The class depend on following libraries:
- StringUtils (standard)
- SQL (standard)
- JavaObject (standard)
- ScrollView2D (additional)

List of major features.
1. scrollable table UI
2. sortable columns
3. select a row, cell or multi select rows
4. callback for selection / click a cell / row
5. callback for long click action
6. read / write to CSV file

Current version --> 3.30 Custom View
Current version --> 1.44 Class

Other complementary routines:

Load data with the Remote Database Connector.


EDIT: LucaMs has written a routine to fill a table with a Remote Database Connector query result see post 182.
The routine hasn't been added into the Class for the reasons explained in post 183.
A sample program can be found HERE.

Code:
B4X:
'load data from a RDC Request
'Result = DBResult object got from a RDC request
'AutomaticWidths  True > set the column widths automaticaly
'Written by LucasMs
Public Sub LoadRDCResult(Result As DBResult, AutomaticWidths As Boolean)
    cAutomaticWidths = AutomaticWidths
    NumberOfColumns = Result.Columns.Size
    innerClearAll(NumberOfColumns)

    Dim Headers(NumberOfColumns) As String
    Dim ColumnWidths(NumberOfColumns) As Int
    Dim HeaderWidths(NumberOfColumns) As Int
    Dim DataWidths(NumberOfColumns) As Int
    Dim col, row As Int
    Dim str As String
    For col = 0 To NumberOfColumns - 1
        Headers(col) = Result.Columns.GetKeyAt(col)
        If AutomaticWidths = False Then
            ColumnWidths(col) = 130dip
            HeaderWidths(col) = 130dip
            DataWidths(col) = 130dip
        Else
            HeaderWidths(col) = cvs.MeasureStringWidth(Headers(col), Typeface.DEFAULT, cTextSize) + 8dip + cLineWidth
            DataWidths(col) = 0

            Dim FieldValue As Object
            For row = 0 To Result.Rows.Size - 1
                Dim Record() As Object = Result.Rows.Get(row)
                FieldValue = Record(col)
                If GetType(FieldValue) = "java.lang.String" Then
                    DataWidths(col) = Max(DataWidths(col), cvs.MeasureStringWidth(str, Typeface.DEFAULT, cTextSize) + 8dip + cLineWidth)
                End If
            Next
            ColumnWidths(col) = Max(HeaderWidths(col), DataWidths(col))
        End If
    Next
    SetHeader(Headers)
    SetColumnsWidths(ColumnWidths)

    For Each Record() As Object In Result.Rows
        Dim R(NumberOfColumns) As String
        Dim FieldV As String
        For col = 0 To NumberOfColumns - 1
            FieldV = Record(col)
            R(col) = FieldV
        Next
        AddRow(R)
    Next
End Sub

This is another routine updated by cimperia in post #392 using a Map for the columns and a List for the rows.
B4X:
'load data from a RDC Request

    Else
      HeaderWidths(col) = cvs.MeasureStringWidth(Headers(col), Typeface.DEFAULT, cTextSize) + 8dip + cLineWidth
      DataWidths(col) = 0

      Dim FieldValue As Object
      For row = 0 To Rows.Size - 1
        Dim Record() As Object = Rows.Get(row)
        FieldValue = Record(col)
       If GetType(FieldValue) = "java.lang.String" Then
         DataWidths(col) = Max(DataWidths(col), cvs.MeasureStringWidth(str, Typeface.DEFAULT, cTextSize) + 8dip + cLineWidth)
       End If
      Next
      ColumnWidths(col) = Max(HeaderWidths(col), DataWidths(col))
    End If
  Next
  SetHeader(Headers)
  SetColumnsWidths(ColumnWidths)

  For Each Record() As Object In Rows
    Dim R(NumberOfColumns) As String
    Dim FieldV As String
    For col = 0 To NumberOfColumns - 1
      FieldV = Record(col)
      R(col) = FieldV
    Next
    AddRow(R)
  Next
End Sub

For a Table added in the code:
The Initialize routine has been splittend into two routines.
New:
Initialize (CallBack As Object, EventName As String)
InitializeTable (vNumberOfColumns As Int, cellAlignement As Int, showStatusL As Boolean)

'Example:
Table1.Initialize(Me, "Table1")
Table1.InitializeTable(5, Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL, True)

Strange, when filling the table - starting some line the cells are filled by the number, and the same if to tap the table:

B4X:
    Dim row(11) As String
    For i = 0 To CurD.RowCount - 1
        tb.AddRow(row)
    Next

    For i = 0 To tb.NumberOfRows - 1
          tb.SetValue(0, i, i)
    Next

Video, showing the process: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8tskcuLtEqbbkQxNHp6bTV0NTA

Seems, some strange in this Sub:
B4X:
' draw a Row, now col is hidden (width <2)
Private Sub ShowRow(Row As Int)
    For I = 0 To lbls.Length - 1
        If (Header.GetView(I).Width > 1 ) Then
            SV.Panel.AddView(lbls(I), Header.GetView(I).Left, Row * cRowHeight, Header.GetView(I).Width, cRowHeight - cLineWidth)
            lbls(I).Text = values(I)

upd: source class of Erel has the same trouble ! :(
B4A v.6.50, Android 5.0

If to use "tb.AddRowAutomaticWidth" - no such trouble !

No project, just try to make a table by SetValue:
B4X:
    For i = 0 To tb.NumberOfRows - 1
          tb.SetValue(0, i, i)
    Next
and tap it later

I am working with a MYSQL DB, PHP, and SQLite, I am bringing the data from mysql using PHP, then I show them in the table with this same class (table), I now need to show the results (filter on the table / grid) that contain what the user is typing on the edittext, but I can`t find a way to make it work.
Thanks!!

:(
Please, I need some help. I'm stuck and I need to make progress on this project. Thanks

What is the trouble ?
Use a timer to wait for the typing result, then make SELECTion from SQLite by the typed text, and update the table.

You should move Dim row(11) As String
B4X:
Dim row(11) As String
For i = 0 To CurD.RowCount - 1
    tb.AddRow(row)
Next
into the For / Next loop.
B4X:
For i = 0 To CurD.RowCount - 1
    Dim row(11) As String
    tb.AddRow(row)
Next

Is this what you are looking for?
Clicking on the header City or Country opens a serch view.
The selected item is highlighted in the table.
I modified a bit the SearchView Class and set the Data List in the Table Class to Public.

Hello. I have a very big sqlite table ( over 800.000 rows). I can upload in grid table only rows visible in screen or few more, and upload more when scroll?
Thanks

Not inside the Table.
You need to manage it yourself.
Trying to scroll more than a few hundreds of rows is not realistic from my users point of view.

Ok, i must intercept a scroll finish event and after make a new query...
Is possible intercept scroll finisc?
Variable maxVisibleRow what do? Can i set it to help me for this problem?

Hi,

Not sure if it was mentioned before but I think that row and col on the Cell_Click and LongCellClick have the row & col the wrong way around:

B4X:
Private Sub Cell_Click
    Dim rc As RowCol
    Dim L As Label
    L = Sender
    rc = L.Tag
    '    SelectRow(rc.Row)
    SelectRow(rc)
    If SubExists(cCallBack, cEventName & "_CellClick") Then
        CallSub3(cCallBack, cEventName & "_CellClick", rc.Col, rc.Row) 'should be rc.Row, rc.Col
    End If
End Sub

Thank you for reporting this:
You should not change in the Cell_Click and Cell_LongClick routines, it has been so since the beginning.
You should change:
#Event: CellClick(row As Int, col As Int)
#Event: CellLongClick(row As Int, col As Int)

to
#Event: CellClick(col As Int, row As Int)
#Event: CellLongClick(col As Int, row As Int)

The only event is Private Sub SV_ScrollChanged.
You need to check there.
I have thinked this solution. What do you think about it?
B4X:
    Private LimiteQuery As Int
'Modify on class table
' the caller can set this variable
Public Sub setLimiteQuery(LQ As Int)
    LimiteQuery = LQ
End Sub
Private Sub SV_ScrollChanged(PosX As Int, PosY As Int)
....
'add thi code
    Dim n, n2 As Int
    n = maxVisibleRow + 1
    n2 = currentMax + 1
  
    If SV.ScrollingIsFinished And n2 = LimiteQuery  And Not (Fine) Then
        Fine  = True
        UltimaRiga
    End If
    If n < LimiteQuery Then
        Fine = False  
    End If
    If SV.ScrollingIsFinished And  currentMin <= 0 And    Not (Inizio) And maxVisibleRow > - 1 Then
        Inizio = True
        PrimaRiga
    End If  
    If minVisibleRow > 0 Then
        Inizio = False  
    End If
End Sub
' return to the caller when scroll stop on last and frist page

Private Sub UltimaRiga
    If SubExists(Callback, Event & "_UltimaRiga") Then
        CallSub(Callback, Event & "_UltimaRiga")
    End If
End Sub
Private Sub PrimaRiga
    If SubExists(Callback, Event & "_PrimaRiga") Then
        CallSub(Callback, Event & "_PrimaRiga")
    End If
End Sub

'Modify on projet
Sub Tabl_UltimaRiga
    Pagina = Pagina + 1
    Tabl.ClearAll
     LoadSqliteDb
End Sub
Sub Tabl_PrimaRiga
    If Pagina > 1 Then
        Pagina = Pagina - 1
         Tabl.ClearAll
         LoadSqliteDb
    End If
End Sub
Sub LoadSQLiteDB
    limitequery = 300
    Tabl.setLimiteQuery(limitequery)
    StrQuery = "SELECT ..."
    limini  = (Pagina - 1 ) * limitequery
    StrQuery = StrQuery & " LIMIT " & limini & " , " & limitequery
  
    Tabl.LoadSQLiteDB(Main.dbSql, StrQuery,False)
  
End Sub
