Pointer2.png MTable: How to remove the checkbox from a cell Pointer.png

This tip applies to MTable versions prior to 1.9.5.
Starting from MTable 1.9.5, you can hide checkbox cells using:
Flag MTBL_CELL_FLAG_HIDDEN_TEXT
(See MTable documentation for that version).


TableCellHideCheckbox.png


When you have a checkbox-style column and want to be able to show or hide the checkbox
for certain cells (see screenshot above), this solution can be used :


Owner-draw the cell for which the checkbox should be removed. It is not actually removed, but visually overpainted
so it seems the checkbox is removed.


Follow these steps :

  • Disable the cell by using this function : MTblDisableCell
  • Set the cell to be owner-drawn using MTblSetOwnerDrawnItem
  • Define the message On MTM_DrawItem under Message Actions of the Table
  • Call a function in the message to overpaint the cell using the background color of the table.
See MTable help for info on the function mentioned


Below a sample. Three rows are inserted into the table (column type is checkbox), the second row will be visually hidden.
(See screenshot for the result of this sample).
