Description Dave Malcolm 2005-01-18 17:49:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
I'm experiencing various errors and problem with Eclipse in rawhide,
and it would be nice to be able to copy&paste text from the error
dialogs into IRC and into Bugzilla.

Unfortunately, the text in the error dialogs I've seen so far isn't
selectable which makes reporting this data a major pain.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get eclipse to malfunction
2. see error dialog containing text which might be informative in a
bug report
3. try to highlight the text

Actual Results:  Text should be selectable, so I can paste it into

Expected Results:  Text is not selectable

Additional info:

Marking as High severity since it makes it much more difficult to
report all the other bugs that I'm seeing (alas).

Hopefully just a case of calling gtk_label_set_selectable (or the
equivalent) in the appropriate place.
Comment 1 Phil Muldoon 2005-04-05 15:45:22 EDT
This would requite modification of the JFACE/SWT text and possibly dialog
functions, so it would require a change from the upstream source. It's unlikely
this will happen soon, due to the time required in fixing native bugs that arise
out of native compilation.

FWIW all errors and stack traces should also go to {yourworkspace}/.metadata/.log
Comment 2 Ben Konrath 2005-04-05 16:27:41 EDT
Perhaps a bug about this should be file upstream.

Bug filed upstream, closing.
