Hello peoples

Is there any way to change an existing Text widget to read only, when it was
constructed without the SWT.READ_ONLY flag?

That would be a hack...

text.addVerifyListener(new VerifyListener(){
public void verifyText(VerifyEvent e){
e.doit=false;
}
});

why, mr. Anderson, why, why do you persist?

You can use text.setEditable(false) API for making the text widget to
read only.
