radio button - setselection - listener [message #465915] Thu, 22 December 2005 11:08 Go to next message

I have some radio buttons in a group, which all have a selection listener
that change topcontrol in a composite on the form. When running the
application and I click a radio button the topcontrol does get changed
correctly.

However when I change the selected radio button with setselection nothing
happens. Doesn't the selectionlistener get fired when selection changes in
code?

What am I missing?

I believe that the selectionListener dont' get fired where selection are
processed via setSelection.

Use notifyListeners : myButton.notifyListeners(SWT.Selection, new Event());

The method notifyListeners() is not intended for this use. Note also that
there are fields in the event that need to be filled in and your code below
does not show this.

The method notifyListeners() is intended to be used when developing custom
widgets.

Rather than calling notifyListeners(), you should just call the same method
you call in the Selection event handler to do the work.


Listener listener = new Listener () {
public void handleEvent (Event e) {
doSelection();
}
};
button.addListener (SWT.Selection, listener);
....
button.setSelection(true);
doSelection();

If radio button 1 is currently selected and the user selects radio button 2,
two selection events will be sent - a selection for radio button 2 and a
deselection for radio button1. Make sure you are handling the right case.
In the selection event handler, check the button state using
button.getSelection().

When setSelection() is called, no selection event is sent. You must invoke
the code that does the selection/deselection work yourself.

public static void main(String[] args) {
Display display = new Display();
Shell shell = new Shell(display);
shell.setLayout(new RowLayout());
Listener listener = new Listener() {
public void handleEvent (Event e) {
doSelection((Button)e.widget);
}
};
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
Button b = new Button(shell, SWT.RADIO);
b.setText("radio "+i);
b.addListener(SWT.Selection, listener);
}
Button last = new Button(shell, SWT.RADIO);
last.setText("last");
last.addListener(SWT.Selection, listener);
last.setSelection(true);
doSelection(last);

shell.open();
while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
if (!display.readAndDispatch())
display.sleep();
}
display.dispose();
}
static void doSelection(Button button) {
if (button.getSelection()){
System.out.println("do work for selection "+button);
} else {
System.out.println("do work for deselection "+button);
}
}

Veronika, I've noticed that calling notifyListeners is not intended for this
use.

Your solution works when the setSelection is done in the class that
implements Listener (or SelectionListener).

Is there another solution when the button listeners are not known by the
class calling setSelection ?

Moved listener code into a procedure and called procedure again when
selecting radio button with setselection. That solved it :-)

Thank you

Veronika,

For Radio buttons, I prefer to use the FocusListener, instead of SelectionListener, because then, you do not need to do a second check to see which of the radio button is currently selected.

I am not sure, if I am missing something.
