How to get column header text in IWDTable


Just want to know how to get column header name in IWDTable.

I know that you can get it with

IWDAbstractTableColumn[] groupedColumns = table.getGroupedColumns();
for (int i = 0; i < groupedColumns.length; i++) {
	IWDAbstractTableColumn column = groupedColumns<i>;

But what if text isnt set on header level but its rendered from cellEditor model binding (im not sure if its like that).

    You can change the column headers even you bind with model node.

      Finally after your suggestion i did it with this code

      String header = column.getHeader().getText();
      			    if ((header == null || header.length() == 0) && column instanceof IWDTableColumn){
      			    	IWDTableCellEditor tableCellEditor = ((IWDTableColumn) column).getTableCellEditor();
      			    	if (tableCellEditor instanceof IWDTextView){
      			    		String bindingPath = ((IWDTextView)tableCellEditor).bindingOfText();
      						StringTokenizer tokenizer = new StringTokenizer(bindingPath,".");
      						String token = "";
      						IWDNodeInfo nodeInfo = context.getNodeInfo();
      						while (tokenizer.hasMoreTokens()){
      							token = tokenizer.nextToken();
      							if (tokenizer.hasMoreTokens()){
      								nodeInfo = nodeInfo.getChild(token);		
      						IWDAttributeInfo attribute = nodeInfo.getAttribute(token);
      						ISimpleType simpleType = attribute.getSimpleType();
      			    		header = simpleType.getDescription();
