cell array in uitable

Subject: cell array in uitable

I try to use a uitable, that contains data from a cell array, which especially means that some fields may contain double or string variables. I found out, that if a complete row of the cell array contains just strings, Matlab is setting the property of the row to string/char - since when I want to change the value of such a field to a double value, it will be saved as string (left aligned content). It seems to me very unexpected, since Matlab just gives the possibility to change column properties!?
Anyway, it would be really great if each field in the table can be set to a string or to a double. Way is is not possible? Further, it would be also really great if it is possible to disable a whole row in the table as it is possible with a column.
Ah, and another aspect: it would be nice, if you type a string with tick marks into a field of a table, that at least in this case a string will be recognized as a string - as it will be in the workspace editor.

Best regards,
