How to use sapphire databind function with customized SWT UI? Razz
I made a customized SWT UI and I want to use sapphire databind function to support my UI.
What will I need to do? Maybe I need to make an interface extends Element?
First step mayb Like this

public interface UpgradeDataModel extends Element
{
ElementType TYPE = new ElementType( UpgradeDataModel.class );

@Type( base = Path.class )
@AbsolutePath
@ValidFileSystemResourceType( FileSystemResourceType.FOLDER )
@Required
ValueProperty PROP_SDK_LOCATION = new ValueProperty( TYPE, "SdkLocation" );
}

How to make it bind with my SWT classes?

Can anyone help me?

It's hard to tell exactly what you are trying to do. Typically, Sapphire is used to write the model and to render UI through an sdef file definition. Did you look through the intro document and the samples?

If you are trying to embed Sapphire UI into a larger SWT UI, you do that via SapphireControl class.

If you are trying to write custom SWT UI and bind it to a Sapphire model, are you certain that Sapphire UI rendering doesn't provide what you are trying to accomplish manually? If you are certain that you have a unique usecase, you can take a look at TextFieldPropertyEditorPresentation for various aspects of binding model to UI.

Thanks Konstantin. I am writting an UI that contains some canvas and some SWT composite. It can' use sapphire UI to do this, but I still want to use sapphire data model to help to maintain data and share in UI components.
