How to use a custom comparator in a TableSorter?
I want to use a custom comparator for sorting a table by a specific column.
As you possibly know, the constructor for the TableSorter class looks like this:
TableSorter(IWDTable table, IWDAction sortAction, Map comparators);
As Map is an Interface I chose Hashmap as comparator container. So, I use the put(Key, Value) method to insert my own comparator into the Hashmap in order to deliver this Object to the TableSorter constructor.
But there is an essential problem:
I assume, that the column which is to be associated with my comparator is determined by the key of the Map object from the TableSorter constructor.
Presuming this, <u>what should the map key be/look like?</u>
An Integer counted from the columns? The column header as String? Whatever? Or am I on the wrong way?
Hours of search did not lead me to some kind of documentation or javadoc of the TableSorter class! This can't be, does someone have a link please?
Thanks a lot for any help.
