RAP 1.4 M5 - New and Noteworthy
Here's a list of the most noteworthy things that are available in the milestone build 1.4 M5 (February 4, 2011) which is now available for download.
This list shows all bugs that were fixed during this milestone.
Note: By introducing this new widget we had to rename the existing CSS element
Widget-ToolTip. This CSS element is used for styling tooltip texts on widgets, as set using
Control#setTooltipText(). The new ToolTip widget can now be styled with the CSS element
This change was necessary to remain consistent within our naming scheme. Please update your custom themes accordingly.
The new scrollbar-implementation is now fully themeable. This is also another small step in our effort to support mobile devices: The scrollbars can now be made wider, so it becomes much less awkward trying to hit the up/down buttons on a touch-interface. As a result the Table is now finally usable on iPad & Co.
New API added
CLabel#setBackground( Color, int )
Image( Device, int, int )constructor
GC#setAdvanced( boolean )and
New Bundles included
Tooltips for TreeViewer
TreeViewernow supports tooltips for its content too. It can be activated by calling
ColumnViewerToolTipSupport#enableFor(). Afterwards you need to override
CellLabelProvider#getToolTipText(Object)and have it return the respective tooltip text. Other tooltip-related methods (
getToolTipBackgroundColor, etc.) are not supported.
JFace and Workbench upgraded to 3.7
Emacs key sequences are not supported and the
emacsAcceleratorConfigurationscheme is missing.
