I was wondering if ImageUtilities.createRotatedImageOfString() works on
Mac OSX (specifically the new Intel Macs). I'm trying to achieve some
vertical text with the following code:

public void validate() {
Dimension dim = FigureUtilities.getTextExtents(
text, JFaceResources.getDefaultFont());
dim.transpose();
setPreferredSize(dim);
}

protected void paintFigure(final Graphics graphics) {
Image foo = ImageUtilities.createRotatedImageOfString(
text, JFaceResources.getDefaultFont(),
ColorConstants.black, ColorConstants.blue);
graphics.drawImage(foo, bounds.getTopLeft());
foo.dispose();
}

When I run the code, the figure takes up the appropriate amount of space
(when I put a really long string in, I get a really tall figure, when I
put a short string in, a short figure). However, I get no text and no
background fill. I don't have a Windows box, so I can't really test if
it is a Mac-only thing.

Since this doesn't work, can someone suggest an alternate approach?

Thanks,
Josh

Can you log a bugzilla and it can get investigated?

Alternatively, you can try to set a rotation value in your paint routine
using the Graphics#rotate method.

i.e.

protected void paintFigure(final Graphics graphics) {
graphics.push();

graphics.setFont(JFaceResources.getDefaultFont());
graphics.rotate(90.0);
graphics.drawText(text);

graphics.pop();
}

Thanks for the reply Steven.

Turns out I hadn't put a StackLayout on the containing figure so while
container's size was reflecting the size of the rotated label, the
actual label figure wasn't getting laid out. So when I was doing a

graphics.drawText("Some Rotated Text", bounds.getTopLeft())

nothing showed up because I was drawing somewhere off in wonkyland. I
discovered this quite by accident when I was working up a code snippet
to submit as a bug. It's all working once I set the layout manager or do a

graphics.drawText("Some Rotated Text",
getParent().getClientArea().getTopLeft())

I can't get he snippet you sent to work on Mac OSX for rotation values
other than 0.0f (and I've got my layout manager set this time :) ). I
can file a bug report with an example if it would be helpful.

Thanks,
Josh Reed

Just, the GEF palette is using the same method you are calling. So, if the
palette is working, there is no bug.

Which one?

The ImageUtilities.createRotatedImageOfString() or the Graphics.rotate()
one?

Thanks,
Josh
