How Do I Customize A Table's Columns?
A column template is nothing more than a LiveCode control that is named after a column in your table. This control is located in the row template group for your data grid. This lesson will discuss how to create templates for columns in a data grid table.
Drag out a new Datagrid from the Tools Palette, and open the Property Inspector. On the "Data Grid" tab, check that the Style is "table". Now move to the Columns tab. Click the "+" (1) next to the Columns: heading. Create three columns and name them Name (2), Email and Login.
In the Property Inspector, select the column you would like to customize (1). Click the "+" button next to the Column Behavior at the bottom of the pane to create a new column behavior (2).
In order to customize the look we need to edit the contents of the template group.
Ensure you have "Select Grouped" turned off (1), select the "Row Template" group (2) and click "Edit Group" (3) in the LiveCode toolbar.
Now select the column group (1) and click "Edit Group" again (2). At this point you can customize what controls appear in the column template.
For example you could change the text style and color of the Login field.
