class: The column definition class reads the column configuration and displays the column accordingly. The class must implement the ColumnDefinition interface. You can write your own class or use one of the ready-made classes. Set the value to the fully-qualified class name. Examples:
editable: Makes the data displayed in the column editable inline. When the user double-clicks the data, the value turns into an editable field. This works for simple data. If you have a detail subapp, you want to set the editable property to false and configure a
defaultActionwould launch the detail subapp where the data can be edited in a form, for example.
enabled: Defines whether the column is displayed or not. Default is
expandRatio: Defines how excess space is divided among columns. A table can have excess space if its width is defined and there is more horizontal space than is occupied by the column data. For example, assume you have three columns with expand ratios
1. The first column takes 40% of the horizontal space, the second column also takes 40% and the last column takes 20%. The default expand ratio is
formatterClass: Defines how the column's value is displayed in the UI. This is useful for making the raw data more readable or making it adhere to a formatting convention. For example, the Contacts app implements a ContactNameColumnFormatter which concatenates the first name and last name of the contact person and displays them as full name in one column. So
Van Goghis displayed as
Vincent Van Gogh. Another example would be to segment a phone number such as
+41 61 228 9000. The formatter class must implement the ColumnFormatter interface. Set the value to the fully-qualified class name.
displayInChooseDialog: Display the column in a choose dialog.
label: Text displayed in the column heading.
propertyName: Name of the property to display. Needed when using the PropertyColumnDefinition class.
sortable: Allows the user to sort the data by clicking the column heading.
width: Column width in pixels. Five pixels are deducted for left margin. So when you define a column width of 60 you get 55 pixels of space for data. Set the value to a number without unit.
