Hi,
In DW SDK, while I want to define a columntype after initializing new columns, it is throwing exception.

firstNewColumn = dwInterface.initializeNewColumns(result.get(t).toArray(new String[0]Wink);
dwInterface.setColumnType(firstNewColumn, IPluginHelper.COLUMN_TYPE_STRUCTURE_FROM_SMILES);

The logic is to check if the new column added has a column header "SMILES", if so, then append the column as COLUMN_TYPE_STRUCTURE_FROM_SMILES.

It works fine when setColumnType is not used. But smiles are shown as String and not structure.

The exception occurs in line
dwInterface.setColumnType(firstNewColumn, IPluginHelper.COLUMN_TYPE_STRUCTURE_FROM_SMILES);
as nullpointer exception.

The exception occurs in com.actelion.research.datawarrior.plugin.PluginHelper line:
mCoordinateColumn[column] = mTargetTableModel.addNewColumns(1);

Since mCoordinateColumn is not set in initializeNewColumns, it is throwing nullpointer exception.

Is it possible to set up a column type while appending column?

Hi helloworld22,

because a SMILES string is a sequence of printable characters, why wouldn't a new colum of type `text` defined via the GUI fit your needs here?

Regards,

Norwid

Hi Norwid,
The requirement is to add columns containing structures and my plugin retrieves the structures(SMILES or Mol File) from our internal database.
I can now append the column as a text as smiles. But I cant convert them as a structure. Unless I convert them as a structure column, I wont be able to do structure search on the existing data.

I tried : dwInterface.setColumnType and added IPluginHelper.COLUMN_TYPE_STRUCTURE_FROM_SMILES. But this doesnot work while appending column.

Is it possible to append column via SDK as structure and not text? I can also retrieve mol files, instead of SMILES, from DB, if that helps.

Thanks
