Subject RE: Adding Data into a Spinner from JAVA code?
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 01:04:15 GMT
Hi Roger,


Ideally I would just make the Data another component and add a label. 

But if that is difficult and it has to be text then I will just add a HEX
colour in the start with a delimiter. (In my code I already have Status
broken down into standard Warning,Info,Fine,Finer etc. )

Hi Mark,

                You can make a custom SpinnerItemRenderer, and call
spinner.setItemRenderer(myCustomRenderer).  I guess my question would be:
how are you going to tell (from the data) what color to make it?

Hi Roger,


Thanks for your reply. to enable me to change the colour of the text in the
list any ideas? 

I had a look at modifying the numericspinnerdata object but it does only
seem to get the String. 

I could rewrite a component Spinner? Based off the Spinner code. but seems
like a fair bit of work;


Anyway for other code to add to a spinner is (Still can't get
SetSelectedItem to work.):

    ArrayList<String> mMessages = new ArrayList<String>();


    public boolean addStatusMessage(String vStatus)



TaskAddSpinnerMessage(mTRNGUIWindow.mStatusSpinner, mMessages), true);

        return true;



    /** */

    private class TaskAddSpinnerMessage implements Runnable


        Spinner mSpinner;

        ArrayList<String> mMessage;

        public TaskAddSpinnerMessage (Spinner vSpinner,ArrayList<String>


            mMessage = vMessage;

            mSpinner = vSpinner;



        public void run ()

Hi Mark,
    The data for a Spinner should be a org.apache.pivot.collections.List of
something (and it could be an unknown or List<?>).  The default list for a
Spinner is an immutable list, so trying to add to it won't work.  And adding
a Label component won't be necessary either because the skin just wants to
call the "toString()" method of the list element in order to render it.
    So, the right thing would be to keep your List<String> spinnerData = new
ArrayList<String>(); separately, then add the string data to it as you get
more text.  Just call "setSpinnerData(spinnerData)" once, and the spinner
itself will update its display as you add data to the data list (that's why
it has to be a Pivot List, so the component gets notified of changes to the
data itself.


P.S. It would be better create a new email thread than replying to an
earlier, unrelated posting.  Thanks.

Hi All,


Anybody know how to set values into a spinner from JAVA code? (Should be
easy just having problems.bit vague of how to use <?> wildcards. and assume
there is an easier way)

I need to add Lines of Text? (Using is for my apps logging interface, to
keep a history of logged actions.) (Also being able to change the colour
would be good too;])

//For example.

String vMessage = "Hello!";



Label vMessage = new Label("Hello");

Subject: RE: Alerts loosing Focus When using Context Menu Items



   We had similar problems in our application.  The issue is that the
process of closing the context menu puts focus back on the window it was
invoked from, which takes focus away from the alert or popup or any other
dialog, for that matter.  We have a workaround, which involves a custom skin
for the menu popups.  

   Maybe you could open up a JIRA issue for your case and we can work on
getting a better fix into the next release.  But, probably we can put the
workaround into that issue so you can try it (at least for now).

Subject: Alerts loosing Focus When using Context Menu Items



I am popping up one Alert message using Context Menu Items. Alert is coming
fine, But Once Alert message popped up, it is loosing its Focus. Can Any
help me in how to make sure Alert should not loose focus when they are
opened from Context Menu Items. Code that i have used for this functionality
is as follows:

Action.getNamedActions().put("openAction", new Action() {
            public void perform(Component source) {
                Alert.alert("Opening.", MyClass.this.getWindow());

Here MyClass is the Class Name in which iam using this code and this MyClass
extends BoxPane and "openAction" is a Menu.Item .

Thanks & Regards
