hi,
resizing a window containing a Group with Text-fields arranged by a
FormLayout causes the Text-fileds to change their sizes accordingly.
whilst resizing horizontally is ok, resizing vertically is rather ugly --
i get big Text-fields with relatively small text inside.
how do i prevent the vertical resizing of the Text-fields and do rather
resize the gaps between?

Group myGroup=new Group(myComposite, SWT.NONE);

FormLayout form=new FormLayout();
form.marginBottom=10;
form.marginHeight=10;
form.marginLeft=10;
form.marginRight=10;
form.marginTop=10;
form.marginWidth=10;

Text myText=new Text(myGroup, SWT.BORDER);

FormData fd=new FormData();
fd.top=new FormAttachment(0,0);
fd.bottom=new FormAttachment(15);
fd.right=new FormAttachment(10);
fd.left=new FormAttachment(0);

myText.setLayoutData(fd);


regards

vertically, of course (although it should be the same mechanism?)

you don't have to set the bottom property to the FormData. This way, it will not take a reference when you resize the group.
