I'm tinkering with the Java Validation Componentry. I've created a
simple subclass of Composite with a standard two-argument constructor.
I've added a Text to the composite.

The validator is complaining that I'm "Missing accessible name" on both
the Composite and the Text. It's not clear to me how I go about setting
the accessible name. Any pointers?

Hi Wayne,

Sorry for this late reply. I had not noticed that my news reader doesn't
work well. I'll forward this to Mike Squillace who leads the validation
component.

Sorry for this delayed response but have been traveling quite a bit and on
vacation this week.

The accessibleNmae on the Composite is missing bc Composite's simply do
not have an accessible name associated with them by default. This is a bug
in the validation document for SWT. You can, however, corect the error by
getting the accessible for the Composite and overwriting the getName
method:
public MyComposite (Composite parent, int style) {
super(parent, style);
getAccessible().addAccessibleListener(new AccessibleListener() {
public void getName (AccessibleEvent event) { event.result =
"composite name"; }
:
} });

For the text field, the validation is correct as the only way to get a
name for a text field is to asssociate itwith a label. Add a Label to the
composite prior to adding the Text object and this should repair that
error.
