I have a databinding that's working perfectly. But now I want to react additional on my own if some values of several GUI elements change. Is it possible to act as some kind of subscriber to the databinding instead of using the eventlisteners of each SWT component?

Hello Johannes,

for sure you can.
Each org.eclipse.core.databinding.observable.value.IObservableValue has an addValueChangeListener method, where you can attach your own custom org.eclipse.core.databinding.observable.value.IValueChangeListener.

For instance:

IObservableValue target = WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).

target.addValueChangeListener(new IValueChangeListener(){
   public void handleValueChange(ValueChangeEvent valuechangeevent){
         Object newValue = valuechangeevent.diff.getNewValue();

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask them Wink

Best regards,
