If i refresh my view from new Thread throw this exception:

org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Invalid thread access

code is this:
public void myMethod(){
new Thread(){
textViewer.getDocument().set(veryHeavyMethod()); //veryHeavyMethod
return a string
textViewer.refresh();
}.start();
}

why this exception?

The problem is that you are only allowed to make certain GUI calls on the
main thread. If you have an operation that takes a long time, you can have
it run on the main thread as a sort of thread i.e. when there are no
messages being processed. This is done by using the method call.

Display.getCurrent().asyncExec(myThread)

Hi,

you have to call veryHeavyMethod() in a separat thread and store the result
in a string. Then this thread calls another thread with
Display.getCurrent().asyncExec(). The second thread calls
textViewer.getDocument().set() with the stored string.

public void myMethod(){
new Thread(){
final String s = veryHeavyMethod();
Display.getCurrent().asyncExec(new Runnable() {
public void run() {
textViewer.getDocument().set(s);
textViewer.refresh();
}
});
}.start();
}


Bye Stefan

Hi,

I'm sorry, because I have not checked out the code.

I use a static var in my application to store the main display:

public class MyApplication {
public static Display display.
public MyApplication() {
display = new Display();
...
}
}

So I can use this static var in my threads like:

MyApplication.display.asyncExec().

Bye Stefan
