Hi,

I have developed an SWT application under Windows. I have tried to run the
same application under two different Linux distributions...
I have noticed that the application has some strange behaviour: the
windows that under Windows OS are displayed correctly, under Linux they
are shown in a different way that force the user to resize them on the
screen. But the strange thing is that under one version of Linux these
windows of the application are resizable, while on the other one they are
not.
How is it possible to setup these windows to be displayed in the same way
(avoiding resizing by the user) under any OS?

Thanks,

Ivan

If you are talking about the resize border on a top level shell, on Linux
systems, the window manager can decide whether or not to grant a request for
resizeable trim. If the window manager does not grant the request, there is
nothing we can do. Note that a native C++ program would have the same
limitation. If you are not talking about the resize handles, then you
should submit a stand alone snippet for us to debug. Thanks.
