Hi,

I need to do a check at the client side (Swing Rayo) at a regular time interval. If the check is negative I need to give a message to the user. I don't want to give a pop-up but are thinking about a message in the menu bar or bottom bar of the application or something simular that stays visible.

Are there already options available in Scout to do this (scedule and message) or do I have to develop it myself?

Regards Bertin

Have a look at the HowTo "Make use of the additional Scout logging features" (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/HowTo/3.8/Make_use_of_the_additional_Scout_logging_features), it shows how to send a message to the status bar at the bottom:

Desktop.this.setStatusText("LOG level is set back to default and recording of log messages turned off");


The concept page about the Scheduler (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/Concepts/Scheduler) should show you how to set up a reoccurring job.

There is also support for client notification and tray icons... Maybe this can help you.

I noticed the setStatusText before but I never got a statusbar. How can I make the statusbar visible (Swing Rayo)?

Noticed that in SwingScoutRootFrame there is this method

  private boolean isShowStatusBar() {
    Boolean b = (Boolean) UIManager.get("StatusBar.visible");
    return b == null || b.booleanValue();
  }


if I hardcoded make this method return true it will show the status bar, but I am not able to do this without a hack. How can I set this value or better, can I change it at runtime.

Regards Bertin

Sorry, I missed your comment that you are using Swing. I've never managed to show the status bar there. We're using the SWT client, so obviously this works, but I realise this is of little help to you. Sorry.
