Bug 52543

Summary: The connection wizard should give access to event methods

Description peterjunglas 2004-12-16 10:53:01 UTC
Getting a value as a property from the event
source may not work in a multithreaded
environment: When the target asks for a property
value, it might have changed already. Instead the
current value can be packed in the event, from
which it should be accessible via the connection

This request is related to the old issue 26390 and
to the message 739910 from the nbusers list.

This theoretically makes sense but I think this enhancement would be used
rarely. I don't see a reasonable use case for this e.g. in Swing. And though
this is quite minor thing, it would not be easy to implement. We might get to it
if we decided to rewrite/improve the Connection Wizard one day; otherwise I
doubt we'll have time to extend the current one.
