I'm trying to use a StyledString to draw text as if it were a hyperlink. I am doing this in the update() method of the column's label provider. It seems that simple methods on the ViewerCell such as setText(), setForeground(), and setFont() work as expected, but when I try to use setStyleRanges(), there is no effect.

Here's an excerpt:

Styler style = new Styler()
{
public void applyStyles(TextStyle textStyle)
{
textStyle.font = boldFont;
textStyle.foreground = display.getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_BLUE);
textStyle.underline = true;
}
};
StyledString styledString = new StyledString(cell.getText(), style);
cell.setStyleRanges(styledString.getStyleRanges());
cell.setText(styledString.getString());


The style ranges appear to have no effect. The font, foreground, and underline settings are ignored, unlike when I call setFont() or setForeground() on the cell.

I also tried creating a StyleRange directly and set the characteristics that way, but still no luck in changing the cell's appearance.

Is style ranges simply unsupported by the TreeViewer?

I'm I going about this in too hard of a way? I just want to have hyperlink capability in one of the columns of my tree viewer.

Thanks in advance,
David

Apparently if your label provider subclasses ColumnLabelProvider, any style ranges you apply to the cell are ignored. I changed my label provide to subclass StyledCellLabelProvider, and now I can draw nice hyperlinked txt.
