Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-2304) [classlib][swing] j.s.text.CompositeView.getNextVisualPositionFrom should use another algorithm
Date Thu, 30 Nov 2006 05:16:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2304?page=comments#action_12454535 ] 
Nathan Beyer commented on HARMONY-2304:

I've applied the test patches and the patch to exclude the tests. Please verify this.

Is your intention now to submit a patch to correct the broken implementation? Will you do
it on this issue? I don't want to resolve this issue, since the "bug" is not really fixed,
just identified.

> In javax.swing.text.CompositeView, getNextVisualPositionFrom is divided into two methods:
getNextEastWestVisualPositionFrom() and getNextNorthSouthVisualPositionFrom(), i.e. horizontal
and vertical correspondingly. The implementation of both is to call Utilities.getNextVisualPositionFrom()
at the moment.
> The method in Utilities calculates the position and returns it. During the calculation
Utilities traverses the Element hierarchy in the document rather than the View hierarchy,
which is wrong. The View hierarchy should be traversed, and getNextVisualPositionFrom should
be called on several views while calculating. For example, this approach works incorrectly
if some views are not visible, like in HTML.
> My vision here is as follows. When getNextVisualPositionFrom() is called on a container
(i.e. CompositeView), the container should find child view
> representing the offset from where to find the next visual position. And then the container
calls getNextVisualPositionFrom() on the child it found on the
> previous step. If the method returns -1, the container has to provide alternative solution,
i.e. move to the next child or something like that. Also it should provide an algorithm for
the case where a child view representing the given offset is not found.
> Additionaly, when moving to another child, the container should use flipEastAndWestAtEnds()
to select the direction in which children were laid out (i.e. next child is at +1 index or
-1 index from the current one).
> The implementation of View.getNextVisualPositionFrom() should be revised as well. (Currently
it also forwards to Utilities.)
