Problems with ColorDialog in combination with Browser on Macos [message #691118] Thu, 30 June 2011 18:39 Go to next message

I have a very strange problem with the Color-Dialog on Mac.

To reproduce:

1. Launch the snippet
2. Wait until the browser-page is loaded completely
3. Select any text in the rich-text of the html-page
4. Press the Color-Button on top of the shell and choose a color.
5. The dialog returns null and the text in the browser has now the color of the chosen color.

I've tried this with Eclipse 3.6. and 3.7 on Snowleopard. Any ideas how to avoid this behavior?


Here's the snippet:

package snippets;

import org.eclipse.jface.action.Action;
import org.eclipse.jface.action.ToolBarManager;
import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.GridData;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.GridLayout;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.ColorDialog;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.ToolBar;

public class Snippet {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		final Display display = new Display();
		final Shell shell = new Shell(display, SWT.SHELL_TRIM);
		shell.setLayout(new GridLayout());
		ToolBar toolBar = new ToolBar(shell, SWT.NONE);
		ToolBarManager toolBarManager = new ToolBarManager(toolBar);
		toolBarManager.add(new Action("Color") {
			public void run() {
				RGB open = new ColorDialog(shell).open();
		toolBar.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL,SWT.BEGINNING,true,false));
		Browser browser = new Browser(shell, SWT.NONE);
		browser.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL,SWT.FILL,true,true));;

		while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
			if (!display.readAndDispatch())

This looks like a bug, please open a bug with SWT here --> &component=SWT
