The best way to do this is by drawing the items yourself. The basic steps
- add an EraseItem listener. When it's received:
- use the event's GC to measure the full string, if it does not fit then
remove the SWT.FOREGROUND bit from the event's detail
- add a PaintItem listener. When it's received:
- if the item did not fit when it was measured in the EraseItem listener
then use the event's GC to measure a string that will fit (eg.- replace the
first x characters with "...", measure it, if it doesn't fit then replace
the first x+2 characters with "..." measure it, etc.), then draw the string
with the GC

An alternative approach (not really recommended) would be to listen for
column Resize events, and when one is received calculate the shortened
strings for all items down the column and change their texts with
