SWT Table with different sized rows and wrapped text [message #507879] Thu, 14 January 2010 19:08 Go to next message

Hi,

I am trying to create a table that can have long and short lines as well
as different numbers of lines in each row.

I have the MeasureItem, EraseItem and PaintItem snippet, but even when I
report the correct size for each entry all of the entries are same height.

1. How do I create a table with rows having different heights?
2. Is there an easy way to wrap the text in a row or do I have to build
my own paint module for each item?

Thanks,
Bill Masek

Not with SWT, which is affected by corresponding native limitations.

Have a look at

http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/JFaceSnippets#Snippet006Ta bleMultiLineCells

Hint: It's a good idea to first check

http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/JFaceSnippets

which usually provides examples of interesting use cases.

Thank you for responding.

In that snippet all of the rows are the same height. It also states
that the feature is part of SWT. In the table I am looking for every
row could have a different height.

Thanks,

I understand that, but in your original posting you asked two different
questions, the second being answered by the corresponding link.
