Hi Guys, I'm trying to rotate a window/canvas (or even just a label if need be) in SWT at the moment, but I can't seem to find a way to do this on the web. Sad

For some time I thought the .setOrientation() command would do it for me, but it doesn't appear to do anything.

If anyone has experience doing this, I'd greatly appreciate you taking the time explaining how to do it.

Thanks guys! Smile

I'm not able to go into the specifics, but I need one canvas to be upside down, and the other to be normal rotation.

A perfect example of this would be checkers. Picture checkers on a table-flat touch screen where two people can read text and see images in the direction they are sitting. That's kinda what I'm looking for.

Thanks

draw it on a image and rotate the image to draw it on the canvas...

below snippets would help
scroll an image (flicker free, no double buffering)
rotate and flip an image
