Is there a way to set the focus to a specific control of my ViewModel, yet?

If no, wouldn't it be a nice feature to set it in the related ViewModel?

Cheers
Philippe

Hi Phil,

do you mean the initial focus? At the moment it is always the first in
the widget hierachy.

Cheers

Jonas

Hi Jonas,

like you said. The focus is set to the first visible widget. Finally i had to override the setVisible of my WizardPage to see the focus:

@Override
public void setVisible(boolean visible) {
    super.setVisible(visible);
    if (visible) {
        Control control = getControl();
        if (!control.setFocus()) {
            postSetFocus(control);
        }
    }
}

private void postSetFocus(final Control control) {
    Display display = control.getDisplay();
    if (display != null) {
        display.asyncExec(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                control.setFocus();
            }
        });
    }
}


I want to archive the same for my Editor. I saw in MEEditorPage an overwritten setFocus() and form.setShowFocusedControl(true). I have the same structure for my editor. But still no focus on the first visible widget.

Anyl ideas?

Hi,

so you implemented your own editor, which embeds EMF Forms? And you do
not want to focus the first control, but a specific one?
Could you report a Bug for that, preferably with an example to reproduce.

Best regards

Jonas
