Hi,

Is there a way to vertical align text into a Label widget like vertical
align of a Text widget ? In fact, i would like to develop a Composite with
a Text widget in edit mode and a Label widget for read only mode. I want
this for a disabled Text (and later Combo) which is not Gray on gray
(background and foreground) I've done it easily, the problem is that the
Label text is align upper left when i put a Border to the Label -> huggly.

A solution ?

Thanks

JMi

into the widget...

Why not always use a Text control and use Text.setEditable()?

Because it can always have the focus when you use the TAB key. I would like
to have the possibility to disable some fields when i edit some other AND
they have to be readable... but when there are grayed, it is unreadable for
old people ;-))

I'vr tried the next code but it seems to loop:

m_textCtl.addFocusListener(new FocusAdapter() {
public void focusGained(final FocusEvent argE) {
if(!m_textCtl.getEditable()) {
m_textCtl.traverse(SWT.TRAVERSE_TAB_NEXT);
}
}

public void focusLost(final FocusEvent argE) {
}
});


Thanks

Just let them tab into it. If not, you can vertically align the label
within a composite using code or a layout. Verital alignment of labels is
not supported natively on all platforms so we couldn't offer API to do it in
Label.
