Hi,

I have a SWT application which runs perfectly when the OS uses fonts
with 96 dpi, but when I set the fonts to 120 dpi, the labels are displayed
with missing text and some textfields are shifted or overlap other
widgets. For the majority of my widgets, I use the FormLayout. Is there
any way to automatically (and nicely) adjust the labels and textfields so
that everything displays correctly.

I saw in some other post (about a different topic) that someone was
measuring the text size (using the font metrics) and setting the label's
with accordingly. Is this the right way? Does anybody have some code
snippet to share?

Thank you in advance,
Regards,
Chris

Can you post a very small example that shows the problem? Thanks.
