is there a way in the python scripting language to get the names of the headings on a table? In order to change a python dataset to a component dataset i need the headers. instead of hard coding the headers into a list i thought getting a list returned from a table component would be better.
Here, something like this should help:
existingData = event.source.parent.getComponent("Table").data
headers = [existingData.getColumnName(c) for c in range(existingData.getColumnCount())]
it works great thanks.
the second line of your code has a weird syntax that i was unaware of. you are doing about 3 things all at one time. i would have written the line like this:
headers =  for c in range(existingData.getColumnCount()): headers.append(existingData.getColumnName(c))
it is strange how your code gets the column name before the for loop.
Nifty, huh? Its my favorite Python language feature: list comprehensions.
