Hi,

The Javadoc says "If the underlying window system supports printing warning
messages to the console, setting warnings to true prevents these messages
from being printed. If the argument is false message printing is not
blocked"

But the "Param" says "
Parameters:
warnings - trueif warnings should be handled, and false otherwise "

What exactly does this method do, for example, in Display?

Regards,
Yu

The description text is wrong, Device.setWarnings(false) will make warnings
NOT be printed, and Device.setWarnings(true) will re-enable printing of
warnings. I'll update the javadoc accordingly.

Could you tell us, what kind of warnings are meant? Could you give an
example?

Thanks,

Some toolkits will spew warnings if some condition arises that is
recoverable but not desirable (these are different from errors). For
example, the GtkFileChooser spews a warning if the user doesn't have the
theme installed that it expects (see
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=149931 ). Clients of SWT
shouldn't really need to use the Device.setWarnings() api.

If so, is would be better to mention in the description that this method is
mainly used by the implementation, not for developers.

Thanks for the clarification and fix.

Some applications on X wish to suppress X warnings as well.
