Label.setIconDimension deprecated? [message #177700] Thu, 14 April 2005 21:16 Go to next message

Hello,

after migrating to M6 I found that the method

org.eclipse.draw2d.Label.setIconDimension(Dimension d)

has been deprecated. However, I found that it was quite handy for
reserving space on labels that did not bear an icon, so that the text
would be aligned with lables that do bear an icon.
I have not found any other way to achieve this, other than providing
invisible icons as placeholders. The method does still achieve the
desired result even in M6, so why not keep it?

thanks,
christian

Alternate ways to do the same:
-> Use a MarginBorder (this would be the correct way)
-> Set icon-text gap

if I understand you correctly, that would mean setting the MarginBorder
(or icon/text gap) only on those labels that do not have an icon - right?
The advantage of the setIconDimension approach is that it can be applied
to all labels, irrespective of whether they have an icon or not..

Yeah, but that's a hack.

We're trying to delete as many fields as possible. That dimension is one
such field. The behavior you are relying on is undefined. It would be
better to wrate a custom-purpose figure which has some hardcoded icon size
such as 16x16. You could do so with far less code than is in Label.
