Hello,

In the English version of our project, we don't see any issues, but when using Chinese text, the first time a DateTime control using SWT.CALENDAR style is shown, the calendar cells are too narrow for the Chinese weekday labels.

Chinese weekday labels are three characters, the same two Chinese characters followed by a day-of-week-specific ordinal. With the cells being too narrow, the labels are virtually identical -- the first two characters plus the first visible pixel column of the ordinal character.

The second time the calendar is shown, the cells are sized large enough to show the weekday labels completely.

It is my understanding that this issue is due to the initial estimate of the size of the characters being off and the RAP server component requiring feedback from the RAP browser component about the correct size so subsequent sizing can be accurate.

Is there some form of workaround that we can do so the user will never see a DateTime control that is too narrow?

Thank-you for reading this post, any help is appreciated,

Scott Helsby

Hi Scott,
as you already mentioned, this is a problem related to the text size
determination. This is *not* a known issue. Please open a bugzilla to
track the progress on it. Please attach a snippet to reproduce it.
Thanks,
Ivan
