SingleSourcing - Replacement of Widget.notifyListeners [message #125306] Tue, 17 March 2009 14:48 Go to next message

I'm currently scratching my head about the following topic:

- we have a single composite with three radio buttons
- all radio-buttons have selectionListeners
- we sometimes change the selectionState of those radio-buttons
programmaticaly (radioButton.setSelection(true)).

Unfortunataly SWT (and thus RAP as well) don't send
SelectionChanged-Events, when calling manually calling setSelection.
In SWT we therefore called 'radioButton..notifyListeners(SWT.Selection,
new Event())' to trigger our listeners.

In RAP there is no 'notifyListeners'-Method :(

Is there any other elegant way, that our listeners get triggered, when we
programmatically change the selection-state of a radio button ?

Kind Regards
Stefan

why don't you have your listener code delegate to, say
updateSeletion(), that does whatever is necessary after selecting a
radio button? This method could then also be called after
programmatically changing the selection. In addition the method
would tell by its name what it is for.
Or did I miss something?

However, Widget#notifyListeners() is in CVS HEAD and will be
available in 1.2 M6 (http://eclipse.org/rap/noteworthy/news_12M6.php)

I'm trying to write a replacement for javax.swing.ButtonGroup
(as in SWT radioButton.setSelection(true) doesn't deselect the other
radio-buttons)

As I don't know if anyone else has listeners on the radio-buttons
(actually I even DO know that some have :D), I have to ensure, that proper
events are fired.

Good news, at least I can comment my current hack:

Listener[] listeners = radioButton.getListeners(SWT.Selection);
for (int j = 0; j < listeners.length; j++) {
Listener listener = listeners[j];
Event selectionEvent = new Event();
selectionEvent.type = SWT.Selection;
selectionEvent.widget = radioButton;
listener.handleEvent(selectionEvent);
}

I was too fast:

radioButton.getListeners(SWT.Selection);

isn't supported in RAP as well ... search goes on ...

Ah, I see.
Until you update to M6, you can use event internals like this:
SelectionEvent event = new SelectionEvent( widget, ... );
event.processEvent();

It doesn't work in SWT of course...
