Hi,

I am trying to render a screen wherein controls are created dynamically based on the input XML provided by user. Screen contains an expandable Section which uses a 4 column grid layout. The section contains 2 Table Combo, 1 multi line text & 1 single line text controls. Grid layout is set to align as SWT.FILL & grabs the excess space in both directions.

Initially the section gets rendered correctly. Now I type some more text in the text area so that there are 3 rows of text in the control. Now the section is collapsed and expanded again. Doing this the text area resizes and grabs more space to display all the text on single line.

Is there any way to avoid it. I tried turning off the flags for grabbing excess space and also tried different alignments.

There probably is, but you need to post your code in some form that's
easily runnable. The ideal template is shown in
