Hello!

Databinding experts - please help me out! I have problems with a view that contains a read-only tableviewer for selection and a details form to edit the selected values. This is pretty much standard Master/Detail I guess. Most of it works except one annoying thing:

When I edit data that already existed, the changes are not reflected in the tableviewer until I do a refresh. When I add a new entry to the List, then the changes are updated in the tableviewer after every keypress. Question is: What am I doing wrong? I do not see the difference between a new instance and a existing one. The data are loaded via Eclipselink from the database.
I run it as a RAP Application. Could it be there is a bug in RAP Databinding?

this is the code for binding the viewer to the model

ViewerSupport.bind(auftragsforschungViewer, projektAuftragsforschungWList,
		        BeanProperties.values(Auftraggeber.class,new String[] { "bezeichnung", "projektnr", "ansprechperson", "notiz" }));	
			
if (projektAuftragsforschungWList != null) auftragsforschungViewer.setInput(projektAuftragsforschungWList);
		
auftragsforschungSelection = ViewersObservables.observeSingleSelection(auftragsforschungViewer);
		
IObservableValue guiAuftragsforschungGeberText = WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).observe(auftragsforschungAuftraggeberText);
IObservableValue guiAuftragsforschungAnsprechpersonText = WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).observe(auftragsforschungAnsprechpersonText);
IObservableValue guiAuftragsforschungProjektnrText = WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).observe(auftragsforschungProjektnrText);
IObservableValue guiAuftragsforschungNotizText = WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).observe(auftragsforschungNotizText);
		
// binding der detail ansicht zu aktuellen auswahl in der tabelle	
bindingContext.bindValue(guiAuftragsforschungGeberText, BeansObservables.observeDetailValue(auftragsforschungSelection, "bezeichnung", String.class));
bindingContext.bindValue(guiAuftragsforschungAnsprechpersonText, BeansObservables.observeDetailValue(auftragsforschungSelection, "ansprechperson", String.class));
bindingContext.bindValue(guiAuftragsforschungProjektnrText, BeansObservables.observeDetailValue(auftragsforschungSelection, "projektnr", String.class));
bindingContext.bindValue(guiAuftragsforschungNotizText, BeansObservables.observeDetailValue(auftragsforschungSelection, "notiz", String.class));



projektAuftragsforschungWList is a nested property ("auftraggebers") in a projekt object. It is as List which contains objects of type Auftraggeber.class and is declared like this:

IObservableList projektAuftragsforschungWList = BeansObservables.observeDetailList(projektWValue, "auftraggebers", Auftraggeber.class);

When I add a new instance of Auftraggeber to this List, then the tableviewer is updated. If I change existing data that where loaded from DB then a refresh is needed.

I have digged through all TableViewer and Databindig examples that exists. Debugging did not help either.

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Thanks for reading this.

You need to use an ObservableMapLabelProvider.

Thanks for your reply Tom!

I thought I am already using a ObservableMapLabelProvider because the bind method of the ViewerSupport -Class already creates this for me:

public static void bind(StructuredViewer viewer, IObservableList input,	IValueProperty[] labelProperties) {
		ObservableListContentProvider contentProvider = new ObservableListContentProvider();
		if (viewer.getInput() != null)
			viewer.setInput(null);
		viewer.setContentProvider(contentProvider);
		viewer.setLabelProvider(new ObservableMapLabelProvider(Properties
				.observeEach(contentProvider.getKnownElements(),
						labelProperties)));
		if (input != null)
			viewer.setInput(input);
}
