i want to implement a DialogComponent in which the user can choose columns by their type (e.g. all Integer-coumns). Now I have two questions:
1. How do I get the type of a cell (as String)? i know that inSpecs.getColumnSpec(i).getType().toString() gives me in type in some cases, but not in the Not-Native cases. In the KNIME GUI a little icon is shown for each column indicating the type and I just want the name of the type as indicated by the icon.
2. How can I pass information about the available column types from the NodeModel to the NodeDialog? I first thought that I can extract the column types within the loadAdditionalSettingsFrom method of the DefaultNodeSettingsPane, but it seems that this method is never called...
I appreciate any help!
