Hi,

I want to create a Shell that has a specified client width and height, so
I do the following:

Rectangle trim = shell.computeTrim(0, 0, ClientWidth, ClientHeight);
shell.setBounds(ClientLeft, ClientTop, trim.width, trim.height);

This works fine if the shell has no menubar, but comes up short if it does.
This isn't much of a problem except that Decorations.computeTrim seems to
take into account the size of the menubar if it's present (Windows
version).

So really what I need to know is does SWT consider the menubar to be part
of the client area and if so, how can I find out the height of the menubar?

(If it helps the app I'm working on dynamically creates an SWT GUI by
parsing Visual Basic .frm files. I also feel that dynamically creating SWT
menus will be a pain but that's a matter for another day!)

Thanks in advance,

James.

The menu bar is part of the trim. If there is a bug on a non-Windows
platform, please enter a bug report.
