Improved Table with Formatting Wiki

The aim of the project is to create an improved version of the JTable class that can be used to easily define the formatting of each cell. As an example, we can take any popular spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc. They let the user specify precisely how a cell is rendered: font, font style, font color, background color, numerical format...

To modify the rendering of table is already possible with the JTable but it is not always easy to change it quickly or to just change it for few cells. To do it you always have to define your own TableCellRenderer, with all the problems that are associated (duplication of code, the loss of functionnalities, difference between looknfeel...). The FTable library tries to avoid or reduce all this problems.

The FTable class add only few functionalities in order to be easily maintain when the original JTable class is updated.
