Possibility to show all text columns default in alignment left?

2 weeks 3 days ago #1 by Michael
Hi Devmachines,

is there a possibility to show all text columns default in text alignment left and not in right?
I found in the GridColumnBase Constructor the AlignRight statement for all columns in default.
I would not change this because then also numeric columns are alignet right by default.

Thanks for feedback.
Michael

GridColumnBase::GridColumnBase(GridViewBase* view, const QString& caption)
: QObject(view->grid()), m_visible(true), m_fixedPosition(Qtitan::AtNone), m_view(view),
m_caption(caption),
m_captionVisible(true),
m_textAlignment(Qt::AlignVCenter | Qt::AlignRight),
m_iconAlignment(Qt::AlignVCenter | Qt::AlignLeft),
m_textElideMode(Qt::ElideRight), m_textOrientation(Qt::Horizontal),
m_decorationColor(Qt::transparent), m_columnEditor(Q_NULL),
m_isHidingEnabled(true), m_isMovingEnabled(true), m_isHorSizingEnabled(true), m_autoWidth(true),
m_minWidth(QtnGridMinTableColumnWidth), m_maxWidth(QtnGridMaxTableColumnWidth),
m_menuButtonVisible(false)
{
}

Unfortunately, this setting is customizable individually for each column. But it’s easy enough to write a function that will change this setting for all columns at a time.
static void setViewAlign(GridViewBase* view, Qt::Alignment alignment)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < view->getColumnCount(); ++i)
    {
        view->getColumn(i)->setTextAlignment(alignment);
    }
}

setViewAlign(m_grid->view<Qtitan::GridBandedTableView>(), Qt::AlignLeft);

Also, this setting can be changed by the end-user, if he call the popup menu at the column.

Thanks for this information.
In this case I have to mark each field wheter the value of the column is a text or not.
Is there a possibility to get this information automatically like by the grouping decision if I can use the summary function. Or in the footer line. There it is only possible to calculate a summ if the field value is not a text.

If I understand you correctly, you need to get the type of editor that is used for editing in the column.
if (static_cast<GridColumn *>(view->getColumn(i))->editorType() == GridEditor::String)
          view->getColumn(i)->setTextAlignment(alignment);

Yes your understanding was correct.

I tried your suggestion.

But I always gives back the Value GridEditor::Auto
And this for numeric fields and string fields.

I tried to use the value of supportedSummaryTypes also. But this ist always 0.
for (int i = 0; i < view->getColumnCount(); ++i) {

        GridTableColumn *currentColumn = static_cast<GridTableColumn *>(view->getColumn(i));

        //        if (currentColumn->editorType() == GridEditor::String) {
        if (currentColumn->dataBinding()->supportedSummaryTypes() == GridSummary::Count) {
            currentColumn->setTextAlignment(Qt::AlignLeft);

In my understanding the editorType GridEditor::String has to be set manually first. If I don't set this type then the GridEditor value is always GridEditor::Auto

In case of Auto editor type use the cast to the string editor class like this:
if (qobject_cast<GridStringEditorRepository *>(static_cast<GridColumn *>(view->getColumn(i))->editorRepository()) != Q_NULL)
          view->getColumn(i)->setTextAlignment(alignment);
