@gtnarg Oh you are referring to the TableFilter. I don't know if I have the best answer since I can't think of any specific resources. Like most things I take a hacker approach. I have a specific (not broad) objective and I may have little idea how to do it. But I keep a narrow focus on what I am trying to accomplish and research all the pieces I need just for that problem. That's what I did with the TableFilter. I threw together a VBox and put all the different controls inside of it. And I gave it access to the outside pieces it needed (e.g. the TableView itself). Then I researched and hacked my way to make that VBox pop up under a column header, and that was one of the few times I copied something verbatim from StackOverflow.
