Hi,

I want to open a kind of confirmation (ok button) dialog which will
display/render a HTML string message. Heres how I did it in swing -
with a JLabel...

JLabel box = new JLabel();
box.setVerticalAlignment(SwingConstants.TOP);
// pd.getLogResults() returns a HTML string ie <html><body>etc....
box.setText(pd.getLogResults());
JScrollPane sp = new JScrollPane(box);
sp.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(350, 400));
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(MyApplication.getInstance(), sp,
"Completed", JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE);

How can I do this in swt? I tried using swt Label but it didnt seem to
work.

Thanks for your time

Paul

Paul,

The SWT Browser Widget is the only SWT component capable of displaying
html out of the box. Have you looked into using it?

hi,

you can displaya limited set of html using the eclipse 3.0 forms api:

StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();
buf.append("<form>");
buf.append("<p>");
buf.append("Here is some plain text for the text to render; ");
buf.append("this text is at <a href=\"http://www.eclipse.org\"
nowrap=\"true\">http://www.eclipse.org</a> web site.");
buf.append("</p>");
buf.append("<p>");
buf.append("<span color=\"header\" font=\"header\">This text is in header
font and color.</span>");
buf.append("</p>");
buf.append("<p>This line will contain some <b>bold</b> and some <span
font=\"text\">source</span> text. ");
buf.append("We can also add <img href=\"image\"/> an image. ");
buf.append("</p>");
buf.append("<li>A default (bulleted) list item.</li>");
buf.append("<li>Another bullet list item.</li>");
buf.append("<li style=\"text\" value=\"1.\">A list item with text.</li>");
buf.append("<li style=\"text\" value=\"2.\">Another list item with
text</li>");
buf.append("<li style=\"image\" value=\"image\">List item with an image
bullet</li>");
buf.append("<li style=\"text\" bindent=\"20\" indent=\"40\"
value=\"3.\">A list item with text.</li>");
buf.append("<li style=\"text\" bindent=\"20\" indent=\"40\"
value=\"4.\">A list item with text.</li>");
buf.append("</form>");
FormText rtext = toolkit.createFormText(form.getBody(), true);
td = new TableWrapData(TableWrapData.FILL);
td.colspan = 2;
rtext.setLayoutData(td);
rtext.setImage("image",
ExamplesPlugin.getDefault().getImageRegistry().get(ExamplesP lugin.IMG_SAMPLE));
rtext.setColor("header", toolkit.getColors().getColor(FormColors.TITLE));
rtext.setFont("header", JFaceResources.getHeaderFont());
rtext.setText(buf.toString(), true, false);
rtext.addHyperlinkListener(new HyperlinkAdapter() {
public void linkActivated(HyperlinkEvent e) {
System.out.println("Link active: "+e.getHref());
}
});

see
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/~checkout~/pde-ui-h ome/working/EclipseForms/EclipseForms.html

for usage.

regards,

lars

Thanks to both of you.

Yes I'd read a little about the forms API and have used the Browser
widget a little before - so it will have to be one of those I guess. I'd
just wondered if there was something comparable to the swing version -
but I guess not.

Thanks again.

Paul,

You can always embed Swing in SWT. Check out SWT example snippet 125.
As an example, this snippet embeds a JEditorPane in a Composite in an
SWT form.


toolkit = new FormToolkit(parent.getDisplay());
form = toolkit.createForm(parent);
GridLayout layout = new GridLayout();
form.getBody().setLayout(layout);
/////////////////////////////
Composite composite1 = toolkit.createComposite(form.getBody(),
SWT.EMBEDDED);
GridLayout composite1Layout = new GridLayout();
composite1Layout.makeColumnsEqualWidth = true;
GridData composite1LData = new GridData();
composite1LData.grabExcessHorizontalSpace = true;
composite1LData.grabExcessVerticalSpace = true;
composite1LData.horizontalAlignment = GridData.FILL;
composite1LData.verticalAlignment = GridData.FILL;
composite1.setLayoutData(composite1LData);
composite1.setLayout(composite1Layout);

/////////////////////////////
Frame locationFrame = SWT_AWT.new_Frame(composite1);
Panel jPanel1 = new java.awt.Panel();
locationFrame.add(jPanel1);
BorderLayout panelLayout = new BorderLayout();
jPanel1.setLayout(panelLayout);
jScrollPane1 = new JScrollPane();
jPanel1.add(jScrollPane1, BorderLayout.CENTER);
jScrollPane1.setVerticalScrollBarPolicy
(JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS);

jEditorPane1 = new JEditorPane();
jScrollPane1.setViewportView(jEditorPane1);
jEditorPane1.setContentType("text/html");
jEditorPane1.setText("jEditorPane1");
jEditorPane1.setEditable(false);

Gerald
