Weird Layout Resizing Issue [message #464322] Mon, 21 November 2005 15:26 Go to next message

Hi,
One question about layout. I'm using a Gridlayout to layout a few widgets
and weird things happen. The program starts at some size, and when you
resize it to be smaller, everything is fine, but when you try to resize it
and make it bigger, the components do not get bigger to fill the bigger
shell (components stay the same size and a big margin appears).

I'm using a gridlayout with one column (GridLayout(1, false)), and inside
of it I have a toolbar and a horizontal SashForm. That's it. Anyone know
what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it? I tried setting various properties
but it doesn't work very well.

Thanks.

The composite and the components need to be told to fill the extra space.
This should work:

composite.setLayout(new GridLayout(1, false));
//set the composite to expand horizontal and vertical
composite.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL, GridData.FILL, true,
true));

//set the toolbar to expand horizontal
myToolbar.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL, GridData.CENTER, true,
false));

//set the sashform to expand horizontal and vertical
mySashForm.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL, GridData.FILL, true,
true));
