TextPropertyDescriptor with multiple lines? [message #452384] Fri, 18 March 2005 21:09

Would it be possible to have something similar to TextPropertyDescriptor
except that it supports multiple lines so that multiple properties can be
displayed in the Properties View?

- property 1 value 1
value 2 on new line
value 3 on new line
- property 2 value 1
- property 3 value 1

i.e. something like:
private class MultiTextPropertyDescriptor extends PropertyDescriptor {
public MultiTextPropertyDescriptor(Object id, String displayName) {
super(id, displayName);

public CellEditor createPropertyEditor(Composite parent) {
CellEditor editor = new TextCellEditor(parent, SWT.MULTI); // to
support multiple lines
if (getValidator() != null)
return editor;

When I do this the properties are still displayed on a single line though.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
