IExpansionListener not called [message #472314] Tue, 12 February 2008 14:43 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Originally posted by: rnaranjo1.NOSPAM.earthlink.net

Hello

Could someone from the UI Forms team comment as to why the
IExpansionListener on a ExpandableComposite is not called when setExpanded()
is called on the ExpandableComposite.

I found a bugzilla on this, 142682, but no one has ever replied there from
the Forms team.

Could the UI Forms team suggest a workaround/override? Most of the methods
that invoke the listener are private.

Thanks,
Rosa

I'm not a dev team member, but...
I know that SWT has made a conscious design choice to NOT fire events in
response to programmatic manipulation of widgets; perhaps Forms is just
following suit...?

There is a new comment on the bug, it is going to be investigated for
the next milestone.

Redirecting to eclipse.platform which is where this question belongs.

Actually eclipse.platform.ua is the correct forum, the User Assistance
team owns the UI forms component.
