Hi,

I am looking to be able to put a tiny icon in front each of the items in
my swt.widgets.List control. Is this possible to do by associating a
JFace LabelProvider to the list?

I have posts and it seems not possible? Possible with swt.widgets.Table
control? Any sample code would be appreciated. Thanks.

The List widget does not support images. You need to use a Table.

Hi,

I'm attempting to set a button with style SWT.CHECK to be "half
selected". Is this feature implemented in SWT?

An example of "half selected" appears in MS Windows when you select
multiple properties and look and the read only check box. It's check
mark and backgound are lightly grayed if some files are read only and
others are not.

Having failed to find a method to achieve this, I attempted to changed
the colour of the check myself with setForeground(Color color); but this
has no effect on the check mark.

Any help appreciated.
Anthony Bennis.

Hi,

Are you talking about enabling and disabling a SWT control? If so, you
can call the method setEnabled(boolean flag). If 'flag' is false, then
the control will be gray out (if it's a label) or not
selectable/editable if it's something editable.

Good luck!

Thanks, but I'm referring the the "3rd selection state" of a check box.
I think windows uses the BST_INDETERMINATE flag when creating a check
button of that state. I read in the forums that it's not supported in
SWT, but having looked at the source code of Button.java, it looks like
it would be trivial enough to implement. Although, having said that, I
attempted to add the extra selection flag, but it didn't work.

I don't think there's any easy solution to this problem, so I'm going to
create a basic custom widget, that has three selection states.

Thanks for the repsonse though.
