Hi community,

I want to select and expand a special path from a collapsed item in a SWT TreeView. If the tree is expanded thus far that the items are visible the code below works. Otherwise not.

TreeViewer mbViewer = (TreeViewer) mbSelectionProvider;
mbViewer.expandToLevel(linkTarget, 1);
mbViewer.setSelection(new StructuredSelection(linkTarget), true);
mbViewer.getTree().showSelection();


Does anyone have the trick to get this work?

I have to state that linkTarget is from Type EObject and is a different class as the TreeItem. Since I tried to calculate the TreePath myself I did'nt get this work as I did not know how I could compare the TreeItem's to the linkTarget's type.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
You could try asking this in the Eclipse JFace forum.

Well, I decided to calculate the TreePath instead. This does the job. Thanks anyway.
