Underlined text in a Label [message #762986] Thu, 08 December 2011 23:04 Go to next message

Hello,

I am using 1.5M2.
I am unable to get underlined text in a Label after I change the Label's font... to be clear -- if I don't use the setFont() I do get the underline.
I created a custom variant in my CSS file:

Label.link {
text-decoration:underline;
}

I set the custom variant on my label like this:

label.setData( WidgetUtil.CUSTOM_VARIANT, "link" );

Is there something I am missing?

Regards,
-mikhail.

Hi mikhail,
the text-decoration is currently supported only by theming. Setting the
new font will remove the decoration. If you need the decoration to be
preserved on the new set font please file an enhancement request.
Best,
Ivan

Mikhail,

to work around this issue you may try to wrap the Label into a Composite
and set the font on this Composite.

I need a little more guidance on this. This is what I tried, and it didn't work:


Composite composite = new Composite( parent, 0 );
composite.setFont( a_font );
// composite... layout stuff

Label label = new Label( composite, SWT.CENTER );
// NO FONT SETTING!
label.setText( a_text );
label.setData( WidgetUtil.CUSTOM_VARIANT, "link" );
// layout stuff...

Is this what you meant?

Regards,
-mikhail.

yes, this is what I meant, sorry that it doesn't work. Are you aware of
the Link widget? It can be used to display text with links. The links
are underlined.

Rüdiger

Yes, I did try the Link widget. The problem is that it doesn't centre properly, and it seems the size calculations are "really" off.

Hm, lot's of dead ends. Sory for that.
Would you mind to open some bugs? One (or rather two) for centering and
wrong size calculations of the Link widget.
And then one for the text-decoration. My current thinking is that it
should be possible to specify text-decoration independently of the font
settings. Hence your initial approach should work.

I am using the SWT Link class to create a link in my RAP UI.

Link link = new Link(parent, SWT.NONE);
link.setText("<A>Click me</A>");


The link works fine but it is always underlined. How can I disable it through CSS?

I tried:

Link {
    text-decoration: none;
}


but it's not working.

Thanks!
