Hi anybody,

i recognized, that my AddOn-class gets the shell from the workbench, from where the app is started.

I added the following "AddOn" to my e4 app:

void hookListeners(Shell shell) {

After I recognized, the shell.setText doesn't works, I add the following code:

shell.addMouseMoveListener(new MouseMoveListener() {
public void mouseMove(MouseEvent e) {
System.out.println("move: " + e.x + ", " + e.y);

The mouse move is only called, if the mouse pointer is out of the app window.

I try it also with @Named(IServiceConstants.ACTIVE_SHELL) Shell shell. But the result is the same.

What should I do, to get underlaying Shell of my app?

I'm working on Mac with the following SDK;
e4 SDK 0.9.0.I20100718-2115

Greetings. Uwe
