Minutes for 2007/06/26

  1. Regrets
    • none
  2. Attendees
    • Pete Brunet, Mike Squillace, Itoh-san (Takashi Itoh), Larry Weiss, Barry Feigenbaum
  3. Structuring of tables - row objects as intermediate children (table, rows, cells)
    • There were two proposals for the case where focus events are fired from cells:
      1. Larry: There needs to be a way to get the row and column indexes. This could be done using IA2::uniqueID. The table can map uniqueIDs to row/column indexes.
      2. Pete: Another possible option is that the AT senses a ROW object, uses indexInParent (CELL in ROW) as the column index, and uses indexInParent on the ROW object (ROW in TABLE) to get the row index.
    • The latter approach has two problems:
      1. It won't work for tables with spans.
      2. Linux has no roles for ROW and COLUMN; this is a problem for multi-platform apps.
    • The former approach will be documented.
  4. Proxy DLL
    • The DLL needs to be built by a non-IBMer and published.
  5. Eclipse
    • The work is temporarily on hold through July.
  6. New Business
    • None
