Re: how to create an anchor column in a celltable

What I want is when you click on the cell a new tab opens with the url you clicked,
my string url column is filled with the response I get from the servlet
can you please give me more details on the alternative response.

If you want to display text as-is (e.g. not a link), then you can use a ClickableTextCell (see it live, with source code, in!CwCellSampler), the FieldUpdater will be called when the cell is clicked.
Alternatively, you could use a TextCell with a custom SafeHtmlRenderer that would wrap the URL in a link (easiest would probably be to implement this using a SafeHtmlTemplates: pass the URL as input –you'll want to pass it as a SafeUri, constructed using UriUtils.fromString()–, use it to construct something like <a href="{0}" target="_blank">{0}</a>)

Hey everyone,

I'm writing the code of a simple web app using gwt, I have a Celltable all its columns are String type,
one of the columns is a url column , I want to make this column clickable, which means once you click on a cell
of this column, you are redicted to the url shown, is that possible?
i tried to add an anchor column to the table, but I got error messages while defining this column when I call the getValue method, the type of return should be a string!!
Is there a way to do such a thing?

Thank you :)
