Re: [orca-list] eclipse and status line

Yech - yeah it looks like the accessible hierarchy Orca is getting from Eclipse is screwed in some way. This might be something that needs to be taken to the Eclipse team since it seems to be out of our hands. :-(

No more erros. However I can not get the content of the status line.


It seems that eclipse doesn't provide a status bar. I remember that when I was a jaws user, I could access something like a status bar. In this component I could read information about line and collumn position, and error messages.

It might have a status bar, but it looks as though something might screwed up enough in the hierarchy so as to prevent Orca from getting to it. I don't have eclipse handy, so I can't debug this. :-(

You *might* try pressing Insert+Ctrl+Alt+PageDown to invoke the Orca debug command that dumps the hierarchy of the application to the console where Orca is started. You could search that for any sign of a status bar. This attempts to dump the complete hierarchy, so it can be very verbose, though. In addition, since we might be dealing with a broken hierarchy in ecplise, the debug code might end up running into that to.
