Why FileDialog's setFilterExtensions() did not work in Linux gtk? [message #446956] Tue, 07 December 2004 10:02 Go to next message

FileDialog's setFilterExtensions() works correctly in window OS, but in
Linux gtk it works abnormal.

If the extension is "*.xml", which will appear in the Text widget on the
bottom, but in the files viewer, no filtering is executed.

Thanks.

This does not work in the original GtkFileSelection widget, but does work in
the newer GtkFileChooser. If you're running with gtk >= 2.4.10 then you
will get the correct GtkFileChooser behaviour through swt, but if you have
an earlier gtk version then file filtering will not work for you. See
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=46667 .
