Having trouble adding leaves to my tree. Developing a stand alone Java app using mainly SWT and Eclipse JavaEE on Windows.

The tree is like this:

root
------parentA
--------------childA1
--------------childA2
--------------childA3
------parentB
------parentC
--------------childC1
--------------childC2

My requirement: when a child is selected/clicked I want to create a grandchild (there could be from zero to say 12 grandchildren). Thus if user clicks/selects childA2:

root
------parentA
--------------childA1
--------------childA2
----------------------grandchildA21
--------------childA3
------parentB
------parentC
--------------childC1
--------------childC2

Codewise I have:



Question one: do I need any further tree related imports to get this to work?



Tree displays, is expandable, has all the right text.
.


And it is here I've tried lots of options but it's like bleak mid winter - no new leaves What seems odd is that I can see the selected/clicked child text item.getText() but if I look at the index it is always -1. And I thought the index would let me create the leaf.

Question 2: If anyone can give me any guidance or link to a good example that actually works while I still have hair it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I do not work in SWT. Maybe you will find the Swing version useful, http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/components/tree.html#dynamic

Maneesh well with the lack of responses here and a host of incoherent examples on the net I guess my choosing SWT for a tree was a bad idea. For sure the examples for swing seem to be intuitive to some degree.

As I only have two trees in my partly developed project I think I'll switch over to swing. Cheers for the reply.

In case you haven't done so already, you might want to try asking SWT questions over at the SWT forum https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/100/
