Using org.eclipse.swt.accessibility.Accessible in class extending GalleryItem [message #518489] Thu, 04 March 2010 04:50 Go to next message

Hi I have a requirement where I want to use test automation tools and run some test scripts. The tool recognizes the controls like table, table item, tree item, etc.
However I have an application where I am using GalleryItem which extends from org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Item. The automation tool fails to understand these items.
Is accessibility (org.eclipse.swt.accessibility.Accessible) is supported for org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Item class hierarchy. If this is not supported how can I achieve the support?

Any help regarding this is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Mahesh

Hi Mahesh,

Gallery does not currently implement accessibility, but this would be a
great addition to the widget.

Could you open a bug for this ?

I took a quick look to accessibility API. It seems we need to add a
custom accessibility listener using :

getAccessible().addAccessibleControlListener( IAccessibleControlListener )

Do you have any experience with this API ?
Could you provide a snippet showing the issue or does this need to be
tested with your automation tool ?
Is accessibility support something you could contribute to the widget ?

Thanks,

I'm surprised to see that an Eclipse Corner article was never written about
using SWT's accessibility API. There are a few examples at
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/snippets/#accessibility . The two most common
listeners to hook are AccessibleListener and AccessibleControlListener.
Also note that SWT's accessibility API has grown significantly in the
eclipse 3.6 stream, so the potential for making accessible custom controls
is greatly improved (worth looking into once 3.6M6 is declared this week).

Thanks Grant, I'll look at 3.6 API.

Tom Schindl gave me a good pointer to CTabFolder#initAccessible() as an
example.

Mahesh, if you need this ASAP, could you try to implement it, based on
CTabFolder and submit a patch ?

I'll try to look at this when I get some free time but no garantee on
the schedule at all.
