Date selection widgets and DataBinding [message #51566] Mon, 14 April 2008 18:55 Go to next message

Hello,

I am wondering whether any of the various date selecting Nebula widgets
support databinding.

CDateTime, DateChooser(Combo), and others provide nice looking date
selection, but is it possible to use Eclipse Databinding with these widgets?

Thanks,
Trevor

Hi Trevor,

I'm not aware of such a thing. I'd say let's file a bug against those
components. There 2 possibilities to proceed because you'll need
additional dependencies (org.eclipse.core.databinding and
org.eclipse.jface.databinding).

There are 2 possibilities:
a) Create a seperate plugin with the databinding stuff
b) Create a non-mandatory dependency in the MANIFEST.MF

I'd prefer a) but I think nebula-subcomponents have also used b) because
starting the work is much easier because you can simply produce patches
against the current CVS. If you filed a bug please CC and I can help you
with the my databinding knowledge.

This bug [https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=177013] is the
enhancement request.

So I guess the question becomes is there any examples of this? How does it
work?

Last I heard wasn't Nebula against using JFace dependencies? Just checking,
or I wouldn't mind implementing for CalendarCombo, but I recall when I
submitted the widgets I had to remove all JFace code and rework it to use
pure SWT...

Well the plain widget yes but if nebula provides e.g. Viewers (like Grid
and Gallery do you need to have an at least optional dependency on JFace
and the same would IMHO apply if you want to provide obervables).

CDateTime does support DataBinding, and I have been using it this way
for about a year. Simply instantiate a CDateTimeObservableValue for the
target side of the binding and use a java.util.Date type model. There
is also a CDateTimeCellEditor for use with Tables, Trees, or Grids.

FYI, I've been terrible about producing binary builds. The CVS version
has a number of stability and API improvements.

Thank you for the information.

I planned on getting a CVS copy since the widget isn't packaged as a plugin
(at least the last binary download I found).
