Size constraints in a PartSashContainer [message #744836] Sat, 22 October 2011 11:26 Go to next message

As far as I know, one can put integer numbers in the field Container Data of the children of a PartSashContainer. They determine the relative size a child gets of the size of the parent PartSashContainer.

Now I would like to set an absolute size of one child, or a maximum size. The other children should take the remainder of the space. How can one do this?

If this is not implemented in the model yet, is there a workaround for the SWT renderer?

EDIT:

There seems to be another problem even with relative sizes: One can set the relativ size of one child to 5%. If the application is started, the child gets this 5%, even if the window is maximized. However, if one tries to change the size with the sash, the size of the child jumps to 10% (estimate!). Afterward one cannot set the size of the child below this (estimated) 10%; above that limit, one can change its size at will (well up to 90% at the upper end).

Maybe my approach is wrong: I would like to use a status line in my application. Since this is not present in e4 4.1.1 (I do not use the compatibility mode), I wanted to use an MPart for my own implementation of a status line. Is there a better approach to a status line?

Hi Karl,

There was a similar question some days ago "how to set minimum size for
windows or parts".

I'm not sure the guy filed a bugzilla, I know I've seen one for min, max
sizes for windows but I can't remember having seen one for containerData.

Would you mind filing one and then post the bug-id to this forum.

Since I couldn't find a bug report I filed this one

http://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361731

This leaves me with the problem of the status line. I know there is a bug report about it, but this does not seem to change anything...
