[Preferences] Why does applyFont() FOR FieldEditor and FieldEditorPreferencePage? [message #650951] Thu, 27 January 2011 09:01

I wonder why the above mentioned applyFont() method has been added to
the FieldEditor and FieldEditorPreferencePage API? The only reason for
its existence in FieldEditor seems to be, because
FieldEditorPreferencePage.applyFont() does invoke this function for all
field editors. The actual problem is:

FieldEditorPreferencePage.applyFont() itself is never called nor does
any other class of the preferences sub-library invoke
FieldEditor.applyFont() - neither FieldEditorPreferencePage itself nor
any other class!

This looks like a defect to me. Either
FieldEditorPreferencePage.applyFont() should be called as part of the
FieldEditorPreferencePage implementation or the applyFont() should be
marked as deprecated.

Thanks and Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler
