Making a Text resizing with it's composite [message #453328] Tue, 05 April 2005 12:52 Go to next message

Hello

I want to make a "TextArea" that fills my entire window and resize
with it.

I understand that I don't have to use the scrollableComposite, so I
took the nonscrollable Composite controlled by the FormLayout Manager
and sticked it's borders to the borders of the composite.

Then I have added the Text into the Composite, but how do I make it
resizing together with it's composite?

I am just switching from SWING to SWT, so any help would be welcome.

Thanks,
Zoran

I have added another Form Layout to the composite and added then the
Text.

Now it's fine.

Regards,
Zoran

Hi Zoran!

You already got it working, but for your purpose its maybe better to just
use FillLayout
Have you looked at FillLayout?
From the API:
"Note that in a FillLayout, children are always the same size, and they fill
all available space."

Hi Anatol

Thanks for the hint.

I have replaced the FormLayout with the FillLayout, as I suppose it's
a lighter layout manager.
