How to manipulate scrolling behavior? [message #1234697] Wed, 22 January 2014 15:59

I desperately need some advice or hints.

I have a container that hosts a number of widgets, which represent data items. There can be plenty of them. To save resources (handles) I want to re-use the widgets. But the container itself shoud look like there are as many widgets as there are data objects. So I need to do some tricks with the scrollbar.

Until today I tried different approaches with a Composite or a ScrolledComposite. Both ways ended up without the final success because it seems that the scrollbars and the scroll behavior cannot be modified.

I even put a container over a scrolled composite by moveAbove(). It looked great (almost there!) but the scrolling via mouse wheel did not work anymore. Someone ate up the mouse events.

What can I do? Any help is appreciated!
