Hi

When the launch configuaration tab that i have created is opened wih
default size, all the parameters that need to be entered are not visible
at times with different resolutions.

Is there any way to provide scroll bars with the main composite so that if
we resize the window the scroll bars automatically turns up and the user
may get a full view using them??

i have tried doing this ::

Composite comp = new Composite(parent, SWT.H_SCROLL | SWT.V_SCROLL);

where parent is the parameter in createControl(Composite parent)

Doing the abouve mentioned thind just creates vertical and horizontal
scroll bars but they seems to be not causing the window to be resized.
They are just visible not helping in the resizing of the windows.

Can anybody please respond to it..???


Thanks..!!

Kate

Hi Kate,
using SWT.H_SCROLL | SWT.V_SCROLL just displays the scollbars, the
scrolling itself is still up to you.

The widget ScrolledComposite is doing what you want.
See the SWT snippets for examples how to use it:
