[platform-swt-dev] Query on creating Controls using the SWT Accessibility API


I am trying to develop controls which is compatible and readable by  IBM HomePageReader(Desktop Reader),

Firstly i used SWT Accessibility API (org.eclipse.swt.*) to create controls such as Checkbox and Labels.

For  eg : Consider  wizard having  2  controls

       Label                 Control Type

       =====                ===========

       COA                    unchecked Checkbox

       OfferLetter         combobox

The desktop reader reads the message as follows  (   COA --- unchecked checkbox ---- COA ----Offerletter )

COA is read twice instead of once at the start.

It is reading the label ,checkbox and again the name of the first label and then the other label...

Here,the first label is read twice...

So,as to fix this issue,I tried creating the label in the following way...

final Label label_15 = new Label(container, SWT.NONE);


final FormData formData_34 = new FormData();

               formData_34.bottom = new FormAttachment(0, 395);

               formData_34.right = new FormAttachment(label_13, 135, SWT.LEFT);

               formData_34.top = new FormAttachment(0, 375);

               formData_34.left = new FormAttachment(label_13, 0, SWT.LEFT);


               access.addAccessibleListener(new AccessibleAdapter(){

                       public void getName(AccessibleEvent arg0) {



                       //Control lab=access.getControl();








Similarly,i tried creating the checkbox also.,

Are there any alternate ways of doing this to make it work correctly  .

I appreciate if u could please look into this and do any help in this regard.

Thanks & Regards.,
