Hi,

I have a program running as standalone app and in case of errors,
it will use a SWT MessageBox to display the error
How do I set the position of this box - as it seems to come up
in the middle of the screen all the times..

Regards,
Achim

You don't. MessageBox's come up at the correct location for the platform.

Steve,

I have a dual monitor display, and any MessageBox's always appear in the
dead center, between the monitors. i.e, half of the box is on one monitor
the other half is on the other monitor. It's then difficult to read
(without dragging), and easy to miss. Therefore, I think Achim has a valid
question...

Thanks,
Kevin

What platform are you running on? I have a dual monitor configuration for
Windows XP, Motif and GTK and on all these platforms, the MessageBox appears
in the center of the monitor containing the parent shell.

I'm running WinXP. I don't usually pass the parent Shell to the MessageBox
(usually null). I should also mention that I'm using an older version of
SWT (2.1). Which probably makes this whole discussion a moot point. =)

I noticed the MessageBox throwing errors with SWT 3.0.1. I haven't gotten
around to debugging that issue in my program yet, but I suspect that I
will have to pass the parent Shell.

Thanks,
Kevin
