How can I create toolbar icons with labels under them? [message #760709] Sun, 04 December 2011 15:07 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Tom Schindl's e4 tutorial we end up creating toolbar icons with the
icon first and the text following. However for most apps that include
the icon and the label, the text is below the icon. How is this
achieved in an e4 app?

Bump. Really hoping someone can point me in the right direction as I
have an app I'd like to migrate to e4 from Swing and it kinda requires
this from a consistency standpoint.

It looks like the toolbar is created using an SWT.RIGHT-Style. There are
2 things you should do:

a) File bugzilla so that this bit is not set e.g. when a certain tag is
present (then maybe you'll get this feature in 4.2) or even better
we control this using CSS - but file a bugzilla and we can discuss
there

b) In the meantime you could write your own renderer (looking at the
code though it is NOT enough to only supply your own
ToolBarManagerRenderer but you need to create
ToolBarContributedRecord, TrimBarLayout, ...) so this is probably
too much work
