View Full Version : getting onBrowserEvent called?

8 Sep 2008, 7:19 AM
I have a subclass of DataView that calls sinkEvents(Event.ONCLICK) in its constructor, and I get the onBrowserEvent calls as expected.

But I tried the same technique with a subclass of HtmlContainer, and I don't get the onBrowserEvent method calls. Same is true for subclasses of LayoutContainer, and others.

Why does it work in a DataView subclass but not others?

How can I get the browser events on other classes? I'm sure I'm missing something.

For now I've gone back to the GWT HTML widget, which does the right thing with browser events. But I would prefer to use the Gxt version if I could understand what the issue is.

I am not sure this will help... if you provide source to illustrate what you're saying.. but I noticed you are using Event.ONCLICK and listening for onBrowserEvent calls....

Could you try using the following (note the 's' on Event class... which is the GXT event class)

widget.addListener(Events.OnClick, new Listener<ComponentEvent>() { .... }
