I am trying to find the best way to implement the following in SWT:
I need to have a grid with elements, that the user can select, optimally by click and drag.
Imagine I have a grid / matrix of 15x10 elements. The user should be able to start dragging from one element towards another, and select a range. Then if the user wants to add extra elements to the selection, can click pressing ctrl at the same time, to form a group of elements.
I have tried doing something like that with a table, but I am not sure it is really what I need...
Can you suggest an implementation and provide some code examples maybe?
