    • Method Detail

      • getFrame

        public static Frame getFrame​(Composite parent)
        Returns a java.awt.Frame which is the embedded frame associated with the specified composite.
        Parameters:
        parent - the parent Composite of the java.awt.Frame
        Returns:
        a java.awt.Frame the embedded frame or null.
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        Since:
        3.2
      • new_Frame

        public static Frame new_Frame​(Composite parent)
        Creates a new java.awt.Frame. This frame is the root for the AWT components that will be embedded within the composite. In order for the embedding to succeed, the composite must have been created with the SWT.EMBEDDED style.

        IMPORTANT: As of JDK1.5, the embedded frame does not receive mouse events. When a lightweight component is added as a child of the embedded frame, the cursor does not change. In order to work around both these problems, it is strongly recommended that a heavyweight component such as java.awt.Panel be added to the frame as the root of all components.

        Parameters:
        parent - the parent Composite of the new java.awt.Frame
        Returns:
        a java.awt.Frame to be the parent of the embedded AWT components
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        • ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT - if the parent Composite does not have the SWT.EMBEDDED style

      • new_Shell

        public static Shell new_Shell​(Display display,
                                      Canvas parent)
        Creates a new Shell. This Shell is the root for the SWT widgets that will be embedded within the AWT canvas.
        Parameters:
        display - the display for the new Shell
        parent - the parent java.awt.Canvas of the new Shell
        Returns:
        a Shell to be the parent of the embedded SWT widgets
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the display is null
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        • ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT - if the parent's peer is not created
