Hi,

I am using the following code to create a property tabbed propertysheet page. My desire is for the tabbed folder to grab the excess horizontal and vertical space properly. However, as you can see, the text continues off the screen even though the containing widget is told to wrap. Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong? I am stumped. Thanks in advance!

	@PostConstruct
	@Override
	public void createControls(Composite parent, TabbedPropertySheetPage tabbedPropertySheetPage) {

		parent.setLayout(new GridLayout(1, false));
		parent.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, false, true, 1, 1));
		
		ScrolledForm scrldfrmNewScrolledform = formToolkit.createScrolledForm(parent);
		//Form scrldfrmNewScrolledform = formToolkit.createForm(parent);		
		scrldfrmNewScrolledform.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, true, true, 1, 1));
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(scrldfrmNewScrolledform);
		scrldfrmNewScrolledform.getBody().setLayout(new GridLayout(1, false));

		tabFolder = new CTabFolder(scrldfrmNewScrolledform.getBody(), SWT.BORDER);
		tabFolder.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, true, true, 1, 1));
		tabFolder.setTabPosition(SWT.BOTTOM);
		formToolkit.adapt(tabFolder);
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(tabFolder);
		tabFolder.setSelectionBackground(
				Display.getCurrent().getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_TITLE_INACTIVE_BACKGROUND_GRADIENT));

		tbtmDocumentation = new CTabItem(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
		tbtmDocumentation.setText("Documentation");

		Composite docComposite = formToolkit.createComposite(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
		tbtmDocumentation.setControl(docComposite);
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(docComposite);
		docComposite.setLayout(new GridLayout(1, false));

		styledDocumentationText = new StyledText(docComposite, SWT.WRAP);
		styledDocumentationText.setAlwaysShowScrollBars(false);
		styledDocumentationText.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, true, true, 1, 1));
		formToolkit.adapt(styledDocumentationText);
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(styledDocumentationText);

		tbtmAppInfo = new CTabItem(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
		tbtmAppInfo.setText("Application Info");

		Composite appComposite = formToolkit.createComposite(tabFolder, SWT.NONE);
		tbtmAppInfo.setControl(appComposite);
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(appComposite);
		appComposite.setLayout(new GridLayout(1, false));

		styledAppInfoText = new StyledText(appComposite, SWT.WRAP);
		styledAppInfoText.setLayoutData(new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, true, true, 1, 1));
		styledAppInfoText.setAlwaysShowScrollBars(false);
		formToolkit.adapt(styledAppInfoText);
		formToolkit.paintBordersFor(styledAppInfoText);

		super.createControls(parent, tabbedPropertySheetPage);

I think you should not use a ScrolledForm. Replace it by a simple Form.
A ScrolledForm will provide as much space as its child controls need.
