I'm looking for ideas or pointers on how to create an multi-line SWT Text with a resizer in the bottom-right corner? MacOS X web browsers, for example, support this for all multi-line input elements.

'm currently placing the text widget in a composite using a GridLayout.

I'd prefer to avoid using a SashForm or a FormLayout; they'd require a significant redesign.

I have tried playing around with a Sash, and changing the text's GridData's minimumHeight/Width and then triggering a relayout, but it didn't have the desired effect.

Thank you for any pointers!

Brian.

Well I guess the layout we've written for Eclipse 4.1 to get replace the
Sash-Nesting we used in 4.0 would be handy for something like this.
