Changing Component in Table bound with JPAContainer

I’m creating a table bound to a JPAContainer as follows:

        dataset = JPAContainerFactory.make(Dataset.class, VdmdashUI.PERSISTENCE_UNIT);
        Table dbTable = new Table(null, dataset);

Is there any way to render a column as a TextArea or other component?

When the Table is in editable mode, the editors for the column are generated with a TableFieldFactory that you can define for the table.

If not in editable mode, things get a bit more complicated. You could use a
column generator
or a
to add a column with TextArea component type.

Thanks Marko - I just make the table edittable but generated the fields read-only so the TableFieldFactory worked like a champ…
