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

'could be called as is:

Public Sub LoadRDCResult(Columns As Map, Rows As List, AutomaticWidths As Boolean)

      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 Designer, this is new
'No need to initialize nor add it onto a parent view

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)


Old:
Initialize(CallBack As Object, EventName As String, vNumberOfColumns As Int, cellAlignement As Int, showStatusL As Boolean)
Example:
Table1.Initialize(Me, "Table1", 5, Gravity.CENTER_HORIZONTAL, True)

EDIT: 2015.04.29 Version 1.43
As the modifications in LoadSQLiteDB don't work in all cases I went back.

Added LoadSQLiteDB2 where the column data types must be given.

EDIT: 2015.04.26 Version 1.42
Changed he LoadSQLiteDB routine, version 1.41 didn't work as expected.
The final solution was suggested by cimperia HERE.

EDIT: 2015.04.16 Version 1.41
Changed the LoadSQLiteDB routine according to the error reported in the SQL issue thread
and the SQLite Cursor GetString versus GetDouble thread.
The problem appears with numbers bigger than 999999.

I tested it with a few databases, but I am not sure if it works in all cases.

Sorry, I hadn't read your post deeply enough.
It is not possible, in the current version, to append the table content to an existing *.csv file.
The SaveTableToCSV routines are based on the StringUtils library which doesn't allow to append data.
To append data you need to write your own routine.
B4X:
    If Register_CellClick(sCol,sRow) = False Then
        Log("Error")
    Else If Register_CellClick(sCol,sRow) = True Then
        Dim FullString As String
        Dim MyTextWriter As TextWriter
        MyTextWriter.Initialize(File.OpenOutput(File.DirRootExternal, "test.csv",True))
        newID = register.GetValue(0,sRow)
        newPO = register.GetValue(1,sRow)
        newCust = register.GetValue(2,sRow)
        newComm = register.GetValue(3,sRow)
        FullString = newID & "," & newPO & "," & newCust & "," & newComm
        MyTextWriter.WriteLine(FullString)
        MyTextWriter.Close
        Log("Success")
    End If

I was able to find a solution to this issue

Thank you for reporting this bug.
The Class has been updated to version 3.09 in the first post.
Thanks, but with this version and FirstColumnFixed = true the last column is showed for half size

is it possible have a parameter for set the number of fixed columns?

On my device it works OK.
Can you post your project, so I can look what exactly happens.

No, not in this version and not in my pipeline.

Sorry

but with FirstColumnFixed=True doesn't work the header align

B4X:
Dim Alignments() As Int
 Alignments = Array As Int(Gravity.LEFT, Bit.Or(Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.CENTER_VERTICAL), Gravity.CENTER, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT, Gravity.LEFT)
 Table1.SetHeaderAlignments(Alignments)
 Table1.SetCellAlignments(Alignments)

Can you please test the class from the attached project.
Perfect, work fine. Thanks

I would like to contribute with a 3.12 version where you can set each row with a color from 5 custom colors

I tried your project.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
You have three lines like this cRowColor3 = Props.Get("Row3Color") in DesignerCreateView.
But you don't have the equivalent #DesignerProperty: Key: Row3Color, DisplayName: Row 3 color, ... lines !?
Do you have a working project?

Are you sure that it works with the lazy loading method?

Now, I got it to run.
There were two problems.
I first load your test project from post#936 and then copied the Table.bas file to my demo program..
There were these lines missing:
#DesignerProperty: Key: Row3Color, DisplayName: Row 3...
Added those, but then I got another error. So i stopped.
Then I tested your project from post#938, it worked.
I copied the Table.bas file to my demo program and got the same error as before.
I found the error:
In Table.bas, line 2432 cTypeFaces = TypeFaces must be cTypeFaces0 = TypeFaces.
I checked my Table.bas file from version 3.11 and that line was OK. Don't know when nor why the '0' was removed.

Another problem is the new AddRow method. As its signature has changed it is not backward compatible.
I renamed it to AddRow2 and added a new AddRow routine with the original signature to be backward compatible.

I will further work on it.
I have some other ideas.
