A simple API addition request for your pondering today:
This RFE asks for the userData property to be added to TableColumn.
userData is a property on Node, and in fact is just a shortcut to
setting a property in the Node.properties map. Therefore, I would like
to expose both userData and the properties map on TableColumn. I can see
the value in adding this in, and there is a patch attached to the Jira
issue above that adds this in.
This API has already been added to another 'non-control' (i.e. a class
in the controls package that doesn't extend from Control, and thus Node)
- the MenuItem class has both the userData property and the properties
map. It could be argued that this should be against all controls that do
not extend Control (including TableColumn, Tab, and the MenuItem classes
from memory), but for now I'm taking it on a case-by-case base. I'm
totally happen to be asked to add this API to Tab as well, if people
want, as it is now the only outlier.
