Scale widgets are slow when inside tabs [message #1038484] Wed, 10 April 2013 23:38

In my application I'm creating a Scale widget that ends up having a really wide range sometimes. With input parameters that should be fairly common I want the scale to have a range from about 99741 to 49870700 and I'm setting the page increment to 49870700/10. This seems to work fine with the natives on Linux but on Windows the slider was nearly unresponsive and very stuttery instead of smooth when dragging.

I decided to start taking out gui elements to find the cause and I narrowed it down to the slider being inside a TabItem. Outside of a TabItem sliders work fine on Windows. In addition to that in my test case, but weirdly not in my application, the slider inside the tab crashes the program with a memory access violation when you drag it and release your mouse outside of the TabItem.

Here is the test case code I'm using:
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Scale;
import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.TabFolder;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.TabItem;
public class Test {
    protected Shell shell;
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try {
            Test window = new Test();
        } catch (Exception e) {
    public void open() {
        Display display = Display.getDefault();
        while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
            if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
    protected void createContents() {
        shell = new Shell();
        shell.setSize(600, 300);
        shell.setText("Scales Test");
        TabFolder tabFolder = new TabFolder(shell, SWT.NONE);
        tabFolder.setBounds(10, 10, 300, 241);
        TabItem tbtmTest = new TabItem(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
        //This one, in the tab, runs slowly and causes a memory access violation
        Scale scale = new Scale(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
        scale.setPageIncrement(49870700 / 10);
        //This one works fine and runs fast
        Scale scale2 = new Scale(shell, SWT.NONE);
        scale2.setBounds(310, 10, 590, 241);
        scale2.setPageIncrement(49870700 / 10);

And here is the hs_err_pid file generate from the memory access violation. I'm not sure if this error happens on other platforms but it does on Windows. Again, This crash was caused by dragging the Scale in the tab and releasing the mouse outside of the tab. Even when you release the mouse inside the tab some gui elements disappear and some blink.
