I have a created the Form view page using Eclipse Plug-gin with a view.I am trying to run a Form View Page, but Sections are collapsed on my first display.
I have set the property of Section as Expanded but its not getting reflected. If I again click on the section, it will expand and will display the contents.

Please find the code snippet for the Form View Page.

public class View extends ViewPart {
	private final FormToolkit formToolkit = new FormToolkit(Display.getDefault());
	private Text txtEemv;
public View() {
	public static final String ID = "example2.view";
	class ViewContentProvider implements IStructuredContentProvider {
		public void inputChanged(Viewer v, Object oldInput, Object newInput) {

		public void dispose() {

		public Object[] getElements(Object parent) {
			if (parent instanceof Object[]) {
				return (Object[]) parent;
	        return new Object[0];

	class ViewLabelProvider extends LabelProvider implements
			ITableLabelProvider {
		public String getColumnText(Object obj, int index) {
			return getText(obj);

		public getColumnImage(Object obj, int index) {
			return getImage(obj);

		public getImage(Object obj) {
			return PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getSharedImages().getImage(

	public void createPartControl(Composite parent) {
		TabFolder tabFolder = new TabFolder(parent, SWT.BOTTOM);
final ScrolledForm scrldfrmNewScrolledform = formToolkit.createScrolledForm(tabFolder);
Section sctnCatalogEntry = formToolkit.createSection(scrldfrmNewScrolledform.getBody(),Section.EXPANDED| Section.TWISTIE| Section.TITLE_BAR);
		sctnCatalogEntry.setBounds(10, 276, 365, 124);
		sctnCatalogEntry.setText("Catalog Entry");
		sctnCatalogEntry.setToolTipText("Catalog Information");
Composite composite_2 = new Composite(sctnCatalogEntry, SWT.Expand);
		org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Label lblNewLabel_3 = new org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Label(composite_2, SWT.NONE);
		lblNewLabel_3.setBounds(7, 10, 84, 15);
		formToolkit.adapt(lblNewLabel_3, true, true);
		lblNewLabel_3.setText("Item Title :");
		txtContractToCash_1 = new Text(composite_2, SWT.BORDER);
		txtContractToCash_1.setBounds(102, 7, 241, 21);
		txtContractToCash_1.setText("Contract to Cash");
		formToolkit.adapt(txtContractToCash_1, true, true);
public void setFocus() {
	public void dispose() {

Can you please let me know what could be reason and how can I render when I run for the first time?

I am curious to know ,why have you not used any layout in your application?

any way...
this code

should be after setting the text and bounds etc

why, mr. Anderson, why, why do you persist?
Because I Choose To.
