Multi-threaded and org.eclipse.widgets.Display [message #448181] Wed, 05 January 2005 01:21 Go to next message

I am new with SWT and using multi-threaded on one single Display. I found
that only a thread that create a Display can accessed its own Display
instance by Display.getCurrent(), while the others can't, except use
Display.getDefault(), is that correct?

Because, when i use other thread that does not create Display to do
"draw2d.Figure.setBackgroud()", I got NullPointerException from
org.eclipse.draw2d.DeferredUpdateManager.queueWork() because it uses
Display.getCurrent() to obtain Display instance.

The question is how can I do as Eclipse SWT API said "(To support
multi-threaded user-interface applications, class Display provides
inter-thread communication methods which allow threads other than the
user-interface thread to request that it perform operations on their
behalf.)"

Regards,
rody

See Display.syncExec() and Display.asyncExec().
