Single cell sellection in SWT table from keyboard

I have following problem.
In SWT table I should edit cells from the keyboard.
After end of editing of first column cursor on pressing Enter should pass to the following column (second) etc.
When I use of style:      int style =      SWT.SINGLE | SWT.BORDER | SWT.H_SCROLL | SWT.V_SCROLL | SWT.FULL_SELECTION
full line is selected, but I need only one cell.
Now I can specify a cell for editing only through the mouse, but I need edit table from keyboard.

Thank you

There is some code (itemList - data model)

private void createTable(Composite parent) {
            int style =
                  SWT.SINGLE
                        | SWT.BORDER
                        | SWT.H_SCROLL
                        | SWT.V_SCROLL
                        | SWT.FULL_SELECTION;
            

            table = new Table(parent, style);

            GridData gridData = new GridData(GridData.FILL_BOTH);
            gridData.grabExcessVerticalSpace = true;
            gridData.horizontalSpan = 3;

            table.setLayoutData(gridData);

            table.setLinesVisible(true);
            table.setHeaderVisible(true);
            

            TableColumn column0 = new TableColumn(table, SWT.NONE, 0);
            column0.setText(itemList.getColumnHeading(0));
            column0.setAlignment(SWT.LEFT);
            column0.setWidth(150);

            TableColumn column1 = new TableColumn(table, SWT.NONE, 1);
            column1.setText(itemList.getColumnHeading(1));
            column1.setAlignment(SWT.LEFT);
            column1.setWidth(150);

            TableColumn column2 = new TableColumn(table, SWT.NONE, 2);
            column2.setText(itemList.getColumnHeading(2));
            column2.setAlignment(SWT.LEFT);
            column2.setWidth(200);

            TableColumn column3 = new TableColumn(table, SWT.NONE, 3);
            column3.setText(itemList.getColumnHeading(3));
            column3.setAlignment(SWT.LEFT);
            column3.setWidth(150);
      }

      private void createTableViewer() {

            tableViewer = new TableViewer(table);
            tableViewer.setUseHashlookup(true);

            tableViewer.setColumnProperties(itemList.columnNames);

            //Initialise cell editors
            CellEditor editors[] = new CellEditor[itemList.columnNames.length];

            editors[0] = new TextCellEditor(table);

            editors[1] = new TextCellEditor(table);

            editors[2] = new TextCellEditor(table);

            //      Column 3  (Combo Box)
            editors[3] =
                  new ComboBoxCellEditor(
                        table,
                        itemList.getConfirmModes(),
                        SWT.READ_ONLY);

            tableViewer.setColumnProperties(itemList.columnNames);
            //Assign the cell editors to the viewer
            tableViewer.setCellEditors(editors);
            // Set the cell modifier for the viewer
            tableViewer.setCellModifier(new ItemListCellModifier(itemList));

when you mean keyboard, do you mean command line?  
where is your InputStream object?
mouse? so its a gui interface and yet you can enter value from the command line?

is this your code or someone elses?

This is GUI application with org.eclipse.swt library.
I need have access for table like spreadshet in MS Excell.
After editing first cell I need select next cell and etc.  
At current time I can select any cell for editing only with mice clicking.
I'd like do it from keyboard

JohnnyAffaCommented:
first of all, im not familiar with the org.eclipse.library class.  however, if its similar to javax.swing.Jtable class then all you need to do is add a key listener/cell listener to your table  eg (in swing)

JTable table = new JTable([object]);

table.addKeyListener(this);

public void keyPressed(KeyEvent event)
{
             if ( event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_RIGHT ) // right arrow
             {
                      Object object = event.getSource(); // here you get a reference to the cell
                 // move to next cell
              }

}

i hope that helps a little, but like i said, i dont know anything about eclipse.libaray class
