Giving a Font the Underline property [message #444487] Wed, 13 October 2004 18:17 Go to next message

I'm a SWT newbie and can't seem to figure out how to make my fonts
underline. The FontData object only takes the styles Normal, Bold and
Italic. All attempts to turn up info on Underline has failed. Either I'm
missing something blindingly obvious, or fonts in SWT don't support
Underline (which seems highly unlikely).

Thanks in advance

SWT fonts don't support underline. While native Windows fonts do, fonts on
other platforms do not.
