Hello,

which SWT Layout would prefer for using with RAP. The app window should automatically resize. Now im using Form Layout, its resizes but the spacing between the related element can only be defined in absoulte points when resizing, not relative. I tried also GroupLayout, but it seems not to be usable with RAP (missing needed SWT Drawable interface). any other layouts you prefer?

the second question is, how can i get the absoulte x, y bounds of a table cell in relation to the parent of the cell table (table has the form layout). want to show exactly under that cell another one table, when click the mouse on it

Greetings, Edin

From what I understand, the FormLayout would suit your needs. Are you
aware of this article? It contains a detailed discussion of the various
SWT layouts.
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-Und erstanding-Layouts/index.html

Are you referring to the GroupLayout from Instantiations?
If you are able and willing to change the source, the changes to bring a
layout manager to work are usually very small.

TableItem#getBounds() returns the size and position of a table item. You
may also try to use cell editors as they may help with handling the
scrolling etc.

yes, i would like to use that one layout, GroupLayout from Instantiations. can you give me some hints on how to implement rap support for that layout, or some other layout?
grouplayout needs IDrawable interface that is not in RAP Runtime. may it be a problem?

Edin,

without knowing the code it is hard to tell what is necessary to
single-source the GrpupLayout.
A general guide to single-source code for RCP and RAP can be found here:
http://eclipsesource.com/en/info/rcp-rap-single-sourcing-gui deline/
(requires registration)

As far as I understand this layout is not open source. You may ask the
author if they are willing to provide a version that also runs on RAP
(I'm there to help if they need).

BTW, in the meanwhile, the Drawable interface is present in RAP CVS HEAD
(and will be available in 1.3M6)

HTH
