Lifecycle of a Form [message #903236] Wed, 22 August 2012 11:42 Go to next message

I recently found that when using an SWT UI no activate event is sent to the form (created ticket 387684 for this).

This brought up the question how exactly a form ought to behave, that is which FormEvent should be triggered and when exactly. Looking through the Wiki I wasn't able to find an answer. Is this described somewhere?

Thanks!
Philippe

I think the only content in wiki about lifecycle of a form is described in the
Form Handler page. But this cover only the events (execXxxx() functions) that are present in the Form and in the FormHandler classes.

I think you are right. It would be nice to extend the Form page (Events section).

Also related with the phases the lifecycle, the output value of the functions: isFormOpen(), isFormLoading(), isFormStored(), isFormClosed()
