I think this may be a know limitation of determining sizes for widgets, but I'm not sure.

1) We have a perspective Toolbar which shows when we login to application.

When we launch application, and login for the first time, the ToolItem is displayed, but is cutting off text. (see attached image: ToolItem-CutsOffText.png)If you see the page load, you can see it shows the correct text, and the resizes the ToolItem, cutting off text.

If you refresh the page, or logout of the application, and log back in, the ToolItem is displayed properly. (see attached image: ToolItem-ShowsCorrectText.png).

Is there a way around this behavior? Can I layout() the Toolbar or pack() the items after load? I have tried that unsuccessfully.

2) On a more general note, I see widgets move around occassionally when text is change in them, or when localization causes widgets to have to grow. Are there any suggestions to limit the jittering of objects, and best practices for handling resizing of objects? I try to solve these issues by layout() and pack() of the containers, but possibly there is a better practice.

Hi George,
the ToolItem issue is probably related to the text size determination in
the first run. Could you open a bugzilla with a snippet to reproduce it?
Thanks,
Ivan

Hi,

We had Elias in-house on Friday, and he helped to reproduce the issue, or at least a very similar issue which is almost the same. We create bug and added to eclipse. Bug number: 380001
