I would like to do something when a scroll event has occurred on a smartgwt window. I'm assuming that an event will be fired when at least one of the following has happened: scroll within window with mouse scroll wheel, scroll by dragging scroll bar, or scroll using scroll arrows.

I've added a handler to a smartgwt window and also to the smartgwt canvas which is the only child of the window. Both have been set up to write to GWT.log.

However, I can't seem to get a ScrollEvent to fire.

Any ideas?

Was it helpful?


Not sure what you did wrong, but here's a working sample:

Window window = new Window();
 VLayout layout = new VLayout();

 // create something large enough to allow scrolling
 Canvas canvas = new Canvas();

 layout.addScrolledHandler(new ScrolledHandler() {
   public void onScrolled(ScrolledEvent event) {


Use the Developer Console to see the logs (see the SmartGWT FAQ for how to access it):

The window has a lot of auto-generated children (eg its header and footer) so maybe you attempted to add a listener to one of those, and it wasn't scrollable.
