FOX calls the selectColumn() method when you click on a column header, 
so I think you might be able to pull this off if you subclass FXTable 
and override its selectColumn() method, e.g.

	class MyTable < FXTable
		def selectColumn(col, notify=false)
			puts "selected column #{col}"

Hope this helps,
