I was wondering if I missed something in the guide or theses containers are not supported?
I believe the current release of the SDK doesn't include a pre-packaged table UI element for you. Instead you need to emulate this using rows and columns.
One of the more recent threads talking about dynamic view elements highlighted an approach for dynamically constructing UI contents by declaring a variable then referencing this when specifying your view contents. Modifications to the value of that variable then dynamically change your UI. I haven't had a need to test this, but I believe that is how it works.
Will give this a try..
As a followup, I tried to test this approach using the dynamic creation of dialogs feedback here and didn't have much luck.
I think the most complete examples of these types of controls I've seen can be found on Jeffrey Friedl's site (surprise, surprise). Specifically the Metadata Presets plugin and the Preview Cache plugin. Both are closed source but they might give you an idea on how to tackle this. Or you could just ask him how he did it if one of his plugins does what you are trying to do.
