UI layout help [message #452601] Wed, 23 March 2005 02:07 Go to next message

I am new to swt and am having trouble makeing a ui. I am trying to make a
shell that has 2 sides, one with a list and a slider underneath it and the
other side has a tree that is manipulated by the slider. OK I can do al
that. My problem is I want the left side with the list to be movable by
the user. In swing I think you can do this with a spilt pane and allow to
user to make the left side narrower or wider as they would like so it
operates like a frame that can be resized by the user.

How do I do that> Current I have the shell with a form layout and 2
groups with a grid layout with the controls inside the groups.

Thank you. i have searche dthe java doc and articles and still haven't
been able to figure this out.

Jason,

I think that SashForm (or at least Sash) is your friend here, see the
following example snippets:
