Size-Calculation of Embedded Swing Controls in Dialogs [message #574909] Mon, 06 April 2009 11:29

If I'm using a JFace dialog like the TitleAreaDialog and having a
SwingControl inside the dialog, the size of the main panel is not
correctly calculated after the shell of the dialog is created.

I tried all available Composites for the layoutDeferredAncestor, but no
one was working correctly. My workaround was to call pack() on the shell
in the afterComponentCreatedSWTThread() method but this works only

Any ideas to solve this problem?


TitleAreaDialog d = new TitleAreaDialog(topLevelShell) {
protected Control createDialogArea(Composite parent) {
final Composite comp = (Composite) super.createDialogArea(parent);
SwingControl control = new SwingControl(comp, SWT.NONE) {
protected JComponent createSwingComponent() {
JPanel p = new JPanel();
p.setLayout(new java.awt.GridLayout(10, 1));
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
p.add(new JTextField(String.valueOf(i)));
JScrollPane scroll = new JScrollPane(p);
scroll.setBorder(new EmptyBorder(0, 0, 0, 0));
return scroll;
public Composite getLayoutAncestor() {
return getShell();
control.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL_BOTH));
return parent;
