Hi to all,
i have an rcp app developed using eclipse version 4.9 under windows.

now i have a pc with redhat 7 as OS. I download the same eclipse version and load the project. I am able to run and deploy the app under linux OS.

The problem is that some widgets and controls not look well, some text are out of buttons, textbox are more width that i see in windows.

I know that is for the OS, i wonder if there is a way or plg that can i add to improve this croosplatfrom deploy.


Thanks in advance.

SWT uses native toolkits/widgets for each OS to best integrate with the look and feel of the OS. Therefore, you cannot assume much about the fonts being used in your application. I guess your layout should be adjusted such that it dynamically resizes your buttons.

As this is mainly a SWT question, I think you will get an better answer by asking on the SWT forum.
