I have a view with one composite. That composite has a label, textbox, and table viewer. When I create the view with a set of search results that are big enough that they need to have scrollbars so that you can see all the results no scollbars appear until the window is resized by the user.

I also have this exact same composite in several editors and they all show the appropriate scrollbars when the page loads. Which is what should happen. So I am pretty confused as to why they won't show in a view until the view is resized but they do show in an editor. I really need those scrollbars to show when the page loads rather then after the user resizes it. I have tried calling update and redraws on the composite as well as the tableviewer. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Thank you.
Dwain

Hi Dwain,

In the problem case is your TableViewer running beyond the bottom of the
view, so it thinks it doesn't need a vertical scrollbar? Can you paste the
few lines here that create your controls?

As a side note you may be able to work around this by calling layout() on
your Composite's parent at an opportune time, but of course it's better to
determine what the actual problem is.
