Hi,

I am creating an application. and I need to create fairly large SWT pages with the help of Visual Editor. So I just created Visual class using Composite. But on the design view when I resized this to length more than 3000 I got an error information that "Control is too large for picture. The picture has been clipped ".
Here's how code looks when I resized on design view.

private void initialize() {
setSize(new Point(474, 3041));
setLayout(new GridLayout());
}

Looks like VE have a restriction on the Figure's length on the Design view.
I have attached screenshot for reference.

Is there any way to increase the size by VE extension mechanism?

Thanks in advance!

HI,

Sorry, this is a hard-coded restriction. If you try for larger than this
you run into memory restrictions. Images can only be so big, and larger
than that they just can't be made.

Thanks for reply!

can't we just compromise by increasing memory size or anything at run time?

would you be so kind to expose about the restrictions. Where is the restriction imposed? if I could override the Editor Edit part or Graphical Edit part of Widget to increase the size by 400 to 500?

Thank you so much!

Hi,

It was actually an OS limit. It didn't allow bitmaps much larger than that.
