How to act on presentation out of non-Display Thread [message #587016] Fri, 12 December 2008 11:57

I am still working on up=eclipse.platform.pde#770

I've found that jdt uses SourceViewer.changePresentation() on every
(AST-)reconcile event. I tried that, but it of course does not work
because the reconciling occurs in a non-display thread.
I'm aware of Display.getCurrent().asyncExec() which solves the problem
from the other side (being in a Display Thread and wanting to compute
something in the background), Is there a way like
Display.getSomeDisplay().asyncExec()? Or do I have to save the Display on
my own somewhere and reuse it? Or should I setup a Display thread to
handle the redraw event from reconciling (and sleep the rest of the time)?

Any advice welcome
