Description

As a start we could always add id, uuid, created, updated. But if possible there should be a way to hide this columns if wanted. (created, updated is less important, if difficult to implement)

Going further it would be nice to have

  • further cache fields (e.g. nameCache and authorshipCache for TaxonName, abbreviatedCache("nomencl. cache") for Reference, nomenclaturalTitle for Person and Team)
  • Important atomized String fields like
    • TaxonName.GenusOrUninomial, .InfraGenericEpi, .specificEpi, .infraSpecificEpi
    • Reference.title, .abbreviatedTitle("nomencl. title")
    • Person.familyName, .otherName, .initials
    • Media.title, Media.description
  • Important boolean values like
    • TaxonBase.publish and Specimen.publish
    • Team.hasMoreMembers
    • protectedXXX fields (behind the respective caches)
  • More difficult are Specimen/FieldUnits, relevant columns here: Country, collector, collecting number, collection, accession number/barcode/..., but they are spread to various classes so don't know if they are easy to handle
  • ...

The above issues are ordered according to importance so feel free to start implementing only the first issues.

Looks ok.

Minor issues:

  • I do not understand the sorting of uuids. Looks like they sort from 8xxx to fxxx and then start from 0xxx to 7xxx. This might be due to the way how they are internally represented. But it would be better to do it more intuitiv for human users.

  • It seems not to be possible to reenable (unhide) single columns, but only all. Is this the only possibility that NAT offers?

  • The right click menu has 3 separators between "New" and "Hide column". It would be nice if they could be deduplicated.

Generally I think you can continue with the implementation.

I implemented all of the mentioned properties as columns.

Please check all types of bulk editors.

The symbol still switches to label if if one sorts by a "protected" boolean field.

Question: does NAT support multi-sort? E.g. you want to sort first by protected or not protected titleCache, second order should be alphabetic order of titleCache.

Note: Some frameworks implement this by first sorting by the second sort, then by the first. The previous sort order stil exists then but is reordered if and only if it does not fit with the later sorting. Would be nice to have this.

NatTable supports multi sort but I have still not tested it yet

I have been playing around with this and it is not an easy fix. Anyway, with the current column size it's not that critical for now because the icon just changes into the sorting arrow and you don't even see the text.

The view configurations dialog does not disable buttons which are not available. Also "Done" I would relabel to "Close". Or is this an RCP System dialog which can't be changed?

true, not critical, but we should remember the open issue.

This is a built-in NatTable dialog
