Re: [orca-list] eclipse and status line

Hi Jose:

The suspicious things are the strange application name and the NULL children. I've never dug into eclipse to figure out how it might be interacting with AT-SPI, so I'm not sure what might be going wrong. It might be an AT-SPI infrastructure change that caused the problem, but I'm not sure.

If you want to file a bug with Orca and don't mind that it might take us a while to get to it (Eclipse is not at the top of our priority list at the moment :-(), we might be able to take a look sometime in the coming months. If you'd like more immediate action, however, you might point the Eclipse folks to the bad app name and the NULL children and perhaps recommend they use accerciser as a means to start debugging the problem.

Hi Will,

I'll try to open a bug in bugzilla site.

is there something in special that must be pointed?
What evidences may I include? The erros (trace messages from orca are sufficient)? Is it possible that the problems found can be caused by an old version of accessibility infra-structure?

Thanks again.

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. :-(

I didn't find mentions to something like a status bar.

Another strange thing is the content shown to

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.
