Multi-column list?

Is it possible to create a list (of class List()) with multiple columns and if so, can you treat and format these columns separately? If not, how could you simulate that, in which a row is like a record of a table in a database with multiple fields?

Re: Multi-column list?

hey eugenevk,


this has been brought up in a few threads in the past. basically you can use the List class and apply a cell renderer to it to make it looks like a two column list. Then the other option is to use the TileList class which was made to look like a data grid of sorts.


Here is a thead relating to the List with a modified cell renderer:




and here's the thread relating to a tile list class method:




the only problem that i've run into is making the column width's different using the tilelist. that may be possible using the cell renderer in the first example if you can work it just right.


hope that helps. good luck!
