Table Elements Fonts, Background etc


I want to change the Font/Colour of the Text and background of Table elements dynamically. Is there some material for the same available in SDN, or could someone point me in the right direction?

    1. You can change background of complete table / column via <i>design</i> property

    2. You can change certain properties of table cell editors (like <i>design</i> or <i>semanticColor</i> in TextView or <i>type</i> of LinkToAction

    3. For certain version of NW some of these properties may be not reflected on UI due to CSS styles in use. For example, earlier preview of NW does not display correctly customized properties of cell editors, however, the most recent NW fails to display table / column customizations correctly when certain editor is used.

    Next to your actual question. The most simple and straight-forward way is to create extra attributes in your context data node these are responsible for representing UI properties. Sure, you must set type of these attributes from <b>uielementdefinition</b> dictionary. Afterwards you can just set necessary values to context element attribute and your UI will reflect this changes automatically.

    Hope this helps,
