TableTree accessibility problem [message #464333] Mon, 21 November 2005 17:21 Go to next message

I'm noticing a problem with items in a TableTree when they are read by a
screenreader, it does not read the "+" and "-" symbols to let the user
know the item can be expanded or contracted. Tried adding an
AccessibleControlListener to the TableTree but couldn't get it to read the
images that way either. Any suggestions?

(I know TableTree is deprecated, but I can't move to the 3.1 Tree yet.)

Thanks!

You would need to add the accessible listener to the Table widget inside the
TableTree (tableTree.getTable()).

You should set the STATE_EXPANDED and STATE_COLLAPSED values in the
getState() callback of the AccessibleControlListener.
