I want a text field to have a minmum width and display the horiz scroll when
the text exceeds the min width. What is the trick to do this?

If i specify layout daya for the Text control and create the control with
with h_scroll the scroll bars never appear .

theControl = new Text(groupBasic, SWT.BORDER|SWT.H_SCROLL);

GridData myDefaultWidthData = new GridData();
myDefaultWidthData.grabExcessHorizontalSpace=true;
myDefaultWidthData.minimumWidth=DEFAULT_WIDTH;

theControl.setLayoutData(myDefaultWidthData);
