Hello!
I am populating a Table widget (class org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Table) with
lengthy text values. When such values are longer than the column's width,
the overflow text is not visible. Is there a way to make a table widget's
content wrap?
Thanks,
David Donohue

Hi David,

wrapping table cells is not supported out-of-the-box. I don't know
of a workaround, but maybe there is someone else who worked around
that...

Cheers,
Rüdiger

Rüdiger,
How about this workaround: on mouseover, the entire text of the table cell
shows up as a tooltip. Is that possible?

Are you aware of any other widget besides Table which can render like a
grid?
Thanks!

Possible, yes, probably, but not provided out of the box. There is a
discussion about how tooltips could be implemented in this thread [1].

If you have only *very* few "cells" to display, you lay out labels
in a ScrolledComposite.
With even a moderate amount of rows, you are likely to stress the
client that much that the app becomes unusable.
