[cross-project-issues-dev] Regarding usage of newer DirectoryDialog on Windows.

Hi All,
On SWT Windows we have recently replaced the old directory dialog with a newer directory dialog via below bug in M3:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=443250

In old directory dialog, we used to have the option to set a text message to specify the purpose of the directory dialog using DirectoryDialog#setMessage()
Off-late we realized, that DirectoryDialog#setMessage() functionality is no more possible with newer directory dialog, issue tracked via bug:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=527240

Hence, revisit the usage of DirectoryDialog.setMessage(String) in your projects, and if needed elaborate the DirectoryDialog Title field using DirectoryDialog.setText().
Note: Recommend to use minimal set of words in DirectoryDialog Title and avoid making it look clumsy.


Thanks,
Niraj Modi
