Extending Jazz UI jobs (especially the UI side)


vikash kumar (61) | asked Oct 07 '09, 1:47 p.m.
Hi,
First of all I would like to thank you all for building, designing such a wonderful Tool for collaberation. I am one of the team member of 40 people and we are using Jazz from last almost 8 month, It really turned the wheel in all aspect. amazing!!

We are also building a tool by using Eclipse (RCP, Plugin development.). one feature which I would like to implement in my application is as follows:
When we start the Jazz , all the Views like work item, My work, Team Central, shows a nice UI ******** "Loading......" in the view part. Offcourse the view is waiting the data to get loaded in the UI.
I would like to use this UI (job api in background) feature in my application. I downloaded the code of Jazz but hard for me to pin point the right place.
Can anybody help me out to know how to implement this feature. I am more interested at the UI side of showing loading... part.

Thanks in advance
Vikash

I havent looked at the code (TeamCentralView, MyWorkView, QuerySection),
but implementation wise, its likely done with a UIJob that is scheduled
in different intervals to draw a label into the parts ("Loading...").
For this low level stuff, you should take a look at the Eclipse specific
docs:

Thanks for responding...
We have written our own Job api by extending Eclipse Job API ..now i want to replace the progress bar with the "loading...." label.
I have downloaded the Jazz client source and tried to get the class which show animated "Loading.." label but couldnt able to locate that.
Can you please tell me the specific Class and plugin name,

Thanks
