Description chris fleizach 2008-12-02 14:59:53 PST
Given that <th> is the header for a <td> cell, is it possible to link the <th> AX objet as the AXTitleUIElemlent of <td> AX object?

I've seen text label with <th> and its input text field with <td>.  That would be a good example where it would be nice to make a connection between the two.

patch to make <th> behave as title ui element

This is a nitpick, but we generally sentence-case our comments. I would appreciate it if you would do that in the comments below. (Meaning, capitalize the first letter of the first work in each sentence. 

> +    // try to find if the first cell in this row is a <th>. if it is,
> +    // then it can act as the title ui element. (this is only in the
> +    // case when the table is not appearing as an AXTable)
> +    if (!m_renderer || isTableCell())
> +        return 0;

And here:
> +    // if this cell is in the first column, there is no need to continue
> +    int col = renderCell->col();
