Hi,

I'm working on a plug-in for Eclipse 3.0.1 on Windows and Mac, and I'm
having a few problems getting dialog layout to look good across both
platforms. One specific problem is that on the Mac, it seems like there's
extra space around buttons, even with SWT.FLAT set, compared to Windows.
For example, if I put a button in a FormLayout, and set its top/left to 0,
0, it actually appears a few pixels in from the corner on the Mac, whereas
it's flush with the corner on Windows.

Is there any way to get around this? Is it a bug in SWT, or is there a
reason for it?

Thanks,

nj

Hi Narciso,

I encountered the same problem and used TollBar/ToolItems as a
workaround. ToolItems seem to appear without the extra space.

Cheers, Markus

Yes, the Mac draws the button a few pixels inside the bounds. Do you have a
snippet that shows the problem?

Try Snippet111 on the Mac.
