having different row fonts in a AbtContainerDetailsView

Postby ericwhitehead » Thu Feb 21, 2008 11:17 pm

Hi all,
I am working with a container detail view that has a colum that allows
you to select different size of fonts - it lets you type in 6 , 8, 10
My container details view will have a number of rows - each with their
own value for font size.
My question is - is it posible to allow each row in the
AbtContainerDetailsView to have different size fonts based on what I
select in the font size field?
I have made a start on it - I have connected the #aboutToEndEdit event
on the cell to an action on my GUI.
From there I am able to get all the cells in the row by going (self
subpartNamed: 'BLA') widget getAllCellsFor: aCallback item position:
aCallback itemPosition. Is there a way that I can dynamically update
each row?

Currently it is using the font name of the parent
AbtContainerDetailsView for all rows (items) - is there a way around
this or is it technically impossible?

I don't have alll the details at hand, but if my memory serves me right what you want to look at is the #visualInfoRequested Event and an override of #visualInfo: aCnrWidget clientData: clientData callData: visualInfoCallData
