Re: [platform-swt-dev] InputMethod problem with SWT(gtk2.0)


Eclipse 2.0 will definitely ship with GtkText, GtkCList and GtkCTree.  There is certainly not enough time to introduce this much destabilization of code at this stage.  Once we hit 2.0, though, the first thing to do will be moving to the correct widgets.

Thanks,

Please enter a bugzilla report describing this. I don't know if we'll be
able to do anything about it for R2.0, but we'll see.

Hi, ecipse.

I couldn't input Japanese character with Java Editor on Linux (Debian
3.0). I investigated the cause and found following mention:

http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/2.0/gtk/gtk-changes-2-0.html

> GtkText and GtkTree are buggy and broken. We don't recommend using them,

I tested a simple program which was used GtkTextView with gtk2.0, then
I could input Japanese character. But when I tried GtkText, it didn't
work correctly.

I checked swt.c and found that uses GtkText which should be replaced
GtkTextView. As long as GtkText continues being used, a lot of
non-Eglish speakers will be troubled to input the characters.
If you'll provide only gtk2.0 build, at least, you must replace them.

Would you please fix it?

best regards,

Takashi Okamoto
