I'm working with ControlCOntributor to deliver a combo/text field in a
View Toolbar. I'd like to control the length of the combo so that it
fills the Toolbar (ie like an "address bar" in Firefox.) Heres the code
I have that creates the Combo, I realize that the ToolbarItem wrapper
somehow controls the width. I can't seem to locate the Layout for the
toolbar (if one even exists...). Any tips would be great!

My ControlContribution class

> protected Control createControl(Composite parent) {
> text = new Combo(parent, SWT.DROP_DOWN|SWT.FLAT); //$NON-NLS-1$
>
> ...
>
> return text;
> }

Right now, as you see, I am forcing the length to be 300px in
computeWidth. I'd like this to be more dynamic so that the combo filled
all excess space in the toolbar, I'd also like it to have a minimum size
so that the toolbar folded over properly when there was no space.

cheers,
Mark
