swt error opening a dialog [message #466353] Sun, 08 January 2006 09:00 Go to next message

Opening a dialog in order to let the user insert his own values for an
element, I obtain this error:
org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Failed to execute runnable
(java.lang.NullPointerException)
at org.eclipse.swt.SWT.error(SWT.java:2942)
at org.eclipse.swt.SWT.error(SWT.java:2865)

org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Synchronizer.runAsyncMessages(Synchr onizer.java:126)

at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.readAndDispatch(Display.java :2716)
at
genericUMLDiagramEditor.dialogs.ContainerPropertiesInputDial og.open(ContainerPropertiesInputDialog.java:125)
I use this code in the open method:
public String open() {
// Create the dialog window
Shell shell = new Shell(getParent(), getStyle());
shell.setText(getText());
createContents(shell);
shell.setSize(400,370);
shell.setLocation(200,200);
shell.open();
Display display = getParent().getDisplay();

while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
display.sleep();
}
}
// Return the entered value, or null
return input1;
}
I don't understand where is the problem; I use this structure in other
classes in my project and all work fine. Thanks

you try open dialog in non-ui thread (probably) - your display
is null - try with Display.getDefault().syncExec(...)
or in rcp PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getDisplay().sync(...)

it is problem (probably, debug that see null variable) - you have to force
ui thread with sync/async

The NullPointerException is being thrown by the Runnable.run() passed into
Display.asyncExec().

There should be a second error message showing the actual cause of the
NullPointerException . If not, setup debug to break on the
NullPointerException and you will see the real cause.
