Hi All,
I have a SWT Text with a style as SWT.NONE.i.e.
txtName = new Text(parentComposite,SWT.NONE);
In my class which checks what values are inside the Text, on the basis of the value validation , wants to change the style of the Text to SWT.BORDER.There is getStyle() method available for Text Control object but we don't have setStyle() similarly we have getBorderWidth() but no setter method .So how do we go about it.
Thanks in advance,#Jayant

Hi Jayant,

Control styles cannot be changed after creation time, so the only way to do
this is to draw the border yourself. I was going to point you at the other
recent thread about drawing borders but I think you're aware of it ;-).
