DND + Table Selection: ordering of Events [message #489606] Mon, 05 October 2009 10:12 Go to next message

Hi,

i have a DragSource on a table, which is populated by a data-view-class.
My problem is that I can't access the currently dragged item in dragSetData, cause on Windows the SelectionListeners on the table are always fired after the drag is finished.

It doesn't matter whether I add the DragSource before oder after the SelectionListener.

I haven't tried to access the Table's selection directly in SetData, since I have no use for TableItem, but I need the associated data, which is provided by my dataview-class.

Any Ideas?

Hi,

Does data-view-class mean you're using a TableViewer? If so then there may
be a listener at the jface level that you should be using instead. Someone
on the eclipse.platform.jface newsgroup could tell you if this is the case.
(Or, does jface provide a way to map from an swt TableItem to an item in
your model?)

If this doesn't describe your case then you'll have to give some more info
(as always, a runnable snippet would be ideal).

I'm using the GlazedLists package to populate my Tables, but that is not important.

I created a small TestCase explains what I mean:
1. drag the tableitem into the other table
2. as you see the selection-event always occurs after dragSetData, dragFinished etc. so i don't see a way to store the current selection in dragSetData in event.data.

This looks like a bug so I've logged
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=291496 . On other platforms
the Selection event is sent early in the drag process.

As a workaround, maybe in the dragSetData() implementation you could create
an SWT Selection event with the current selection and invoke the viewer's
Selection listener manually (or by Table.notifyListeners(int, Event))? Then
it should be able to provide you with the appropriate data. If you do give
this a try then be sure to see if GlazedLists handles this situation fine
when it receives the second Selection event (the "real" one) for the same
item after the drop has completed. Also, you would probably only want to
send the fake event if SWT.getPlatform() answers "win32".

HTH,
Grant
