Automatic set ID for LinkedCellEditor column

I have a table with a linked cell editor. If I set the display value via

Code: Select all
book.setValue("PROJ_NAME")

then the ID is not set automatically.

Is it possible to set the ID automatically?

The DataBook doesn't set the values automatically, but the DataBookUtil does:

Code: Select all
DataBookUtil.setValue(book, "PROJ_NAME", value);


But be careful, if you set the ID column it needs a linked cell editor (can be the same as for the PROJ_NAME column) too.

The DataBookUtil.setValue method checks if the given column uses a linked cell editor and updates all referenced columns too. If there's no linked cell editor, a simple setValue of the DataBook will be triggered.

What exactly happens when the setValue of the DataBook is triggered?

What do you mean? Which events will be triggered?

The DataBook.setValue simply sets a value for a specific column. It triggers different events. This method doesn't take care of cell editors

The DataBookUtil.setValue checks if the given column contains a linked cell editor and sets all referenced columns not only the given column. The databook events will be triggered as usual.
