Subject RE: Adding Data into a Spinner from JAVA code?
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2014 18:29:18 GMT
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

Subject: RE: Adding Data into a Spinner from JAVA code?

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)
        ApplicationContext.queueCallback(new TaskAddSpinnerMessage(mTRNGUIWindow.mStatusSpinner,
mMessages), true);
        return true;

    /** */
    private class TaskAddSpinnerMessage implements Runnable
        Spinner mSpinner;
        ArrayList<String> mMessage;
        public TaskAddSpinnerMessage (Spinner vSpinner,ArrayList<String> vMessage)
            mMessage = vMessage;
            mSpinner = vSpinner;

        public void run ()

Subject: Re: Adding Data into a Spinner from JAVA code?

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.

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
