What is the quickest way to select the first node in a tree?

Should a lookup be done on text or can it be done differently..

Hmm had to look better. This is my own solution. If it can be done better
let me know.

private void selectFirstRootItem() {
TreeItem[] sel = new TreeItem[1];
if (tree.getItemCount() > 0) {
sel[0] = tree.getItems()[0];
tree.setSelection(sel);
tree.showSelection();
}
}

That's the solution that I've been using. I don't that there's a more elegant way of doing it (not that our way is terribly ugly, but you know what I mean).

if (tree.getItemCount() > 0) {
tree.setSelection(new TreeItem[]{tree.getItem(0)});
}

Note: tree.showSelection(); is not neccessary as this is part of
setSelection()
Getting one item at an index is much more effecient than getting all the
items.
