Extending the getting started example [message #11010] Tue, 21 February 2006 10:12 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm looking at creating a launch configuration that will start a voice
modem connection over the internal phone system to a local voice xml
browser.

I've created implementations of IBrowserConfigurationUI and
IVoiceXMLBrowser and put them in a browser element in an
org.eclipse.vtp.launching.voiceXMLBrowser extension point. Currently
the IVoiceXMLBrowser implementation is all stubs and the
IBrowserConfigurationUI has stubs that show which methods are being
called (just sends method name to System.out) for all methods except
drawConfigurationUI which should also draw a label and a text box. Also
isValid always returns true.

When I run the plugin and select "Run..." I see a message telling me
that the IBrowserConfigurationUI class has been loaded and the new
browser name is in the "Browser:" drop down, but when I select it all
the controls below the "URL:" drop down disappear and I don't see any of
my ones. I also don't see any messages from the IBrowserConfigurationUI
class indicating that any of its methods are getting called. No
exceptions are being caught and I can go back to the "Tellme VoiceXML
Browser" configuration without any problems.

What's the silly mistake I've made? :-)

Regards,

Marcus.

Hard to say without code, but I have a few guesses. Maybe you need to make
sure in the drawConfigurationUI method that you're properly setting
GridLayouts and GridDatas on the controls?

Here is a *very* simple example I use to test. It doesn't do much, and
honestly is probably in a funny state since I just throw code in to test,
but it should bring up a UI. I'll also attach a simple stub implementation
of IVoiceXMLBrowser that has a few examples here and there of how to throw
events.

Hope that helps, and let us know how it goes!

Hi Brent,

Thanks for the example. Unfortunately I get the same behavior I am
seeing with my classes, i.e. browser name appears in the drop down but
no user interface controls are shown. I wonder if I haven't supplied
enough information in my plugin.xml. All I have is this:

<extension
point="org.eclipse.vtp.launching.voiceXMLBrowser">
<browser
class="brent.testcase.MyVoiceXMLBrowser"
configurationUIClass="brent.testcase.IBrowserConfigurationUI "
id="brent.testcase.vxmlbrowser"
launchInputView="true"
name="Test Browser"/>
</extension>


Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Marcus.

Here is what is in my plugin.xml:

<extension
point="org.eclipse.vtp.launching.voiceXMLBrowser">
<browser
class="brent.testcase.MyVoiceXMLBrowser"
id="brent.testcase.browser"
name="Brent's Amazing VoiceXML Browser"
configurationUIClass="brent.testcase.MyBrowserUI"
launchInputView="true"/>
</extension>

I think the problem is the configurationUIClass line. Let me attach my
entire project so you can try it out if you'd like. In the meantime I'll
build it and try deploying it to a fresh copy of the VTP on another machine
to make sure it's working for me here.

Hi Brent,

Thanks for the project. It's a long time since I last did a plugin and
I had missed some of the required ones. My one is now drawing a UI so
I'll see how far I can take it.

Regards,

Marcus.
