I`m developing RAP applications quit a while back, I see an issue with mouse selection on the labels.

General tendency, as a user I expect I can select text which appears on the browser using mouse, either double clicking (which selects whole text) or by selecting some part of the label. But In RAP seems like it doesnt work at all Rolling Eyes .

Ex: I have an a simple UI, which has one label in it, and when I launch the RAP application I want to select that text using mouse click.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
RAP behaves exactly like SWT, where Label text can't be selected. Use a
Text widget with READ_ONLY style instead.
HTH,
Ivan

That Spoils the UI then... My requirement was to select the label which is shows on a custom widget (which actually behaves as a tooltip box)
Any other alternative?

Hi.

We already have a bug for this:

Bug 406199 - Add a way to re-enable selectable content and browser
context menu

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=406199

Not enough people seemed interested to give it a high priority and
nobody requested sponsored development.

Not sure why it "spoils" your UI though. A Text widget that is not
editable and has no border is visually indistinguishable from a Label
(though it will have a text cursor when focused).

Greetings,
Tim

I`ve managed to make use of Text in SWT and apply below CSS to make it look like a label. It completes my requirement. Ofcourse using Text in READ_ONLY mode with no borders. Smile

Original Text CSS
        font: 11px arial, tahoma, helvetica, sans-serif;
	border: none;
	padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
	border-radius: 0;
	color: #000000;
	background-color: transparent;
	background-image: none;
	text-shadow: none;
	box-shadow: none;
	height: 18px;


After modification.
        font: 12px arial, tahoma, helvetica, sans-serif;
	border: 1px solid #cccccc;
	border-radius: 0;
	padding: 5px 5px 5px 5px;
	color: #000000;
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	background-position: left top;
	background-color: #ffffff;
	background-image: none;
	text-shadow: none;
	box-shadow: none;
	height: 18px;



Thanks
Naveen
