Hi everybody,

I'm trying to create a property sheet using eclipse forms. The property
sheet should print documentation for objects selected. The documentation
could be quite long and should wrap automatically. Well and here is the
problem it does not. I've tried a lot of stuff but nothing seams to
work. I am already wondering if it is possible or not. Here is some code
I wrote:

public void createControls(Composite parent,
final TabbedPropertySheetPage atabbedPropertySheetPage) {
super.createControls(parent, atabbedPropertySheetPage);



toolkit = new TabbedPropertySheetWidgetFactory();
form = toolkit.createForm(parent);
form.setText("Documentation");

TableWrapLayout descriptionLayout = new TableWrapLayout();
descriptionLayout.numColumns=1;
form.getBody().setLayout(descriptionLayout);


TableWrapData twd = new TableWrapData();
twd.colspan=1;
twd.grabVertical=true;
twd.grabHorizontal=true;

String t = "dhfjsfhk hfdskj fhjksd fhdsjkf hjkhjkhfdsjhk hfjdshhjkhdfs
hfdsjhfdj fhdjfh sdhfjdhjfdskhjfdsh hfdjskhf dsjkjhfdjsk h hfdskjhfdjsh
hjkfsdh fdhjkshfdskjhfdsj hjfdskhf dshjfksdhf sdjk";

FormText text = toolkit.createFormText(form.getBody(), false);
text.setText(t, false, false);
text.setLayoutData(twd);
}

No mater what widget I take the long text t is not wrapped :(

Regards
Martin

Hi,

Does setting the wrap style for the text work for you?
--> createFormText(form.getBody(), false, SWT.WRAP)

Eclipse Forms belong to Platform UA, please post your question in the Platform - User Assistance forum if setting this doesn't work.
