My aim is the implementation of a kind of fileviewer and I am trying to get as much width on den screen as available.

But with Gridlayout the screen size seems to be fixed.

Experimenting with FormLayout by now..

The examples, like org.eclipse.rap.examples(.pages) seem to have a fixed size, too.

Does anyone know a possibility to spread a textarea over the whole width of den Browser window like width="100%" in html?
In html it is basically easy to achieve this, but using RAP I can't see this :-/


Thanks in advance

You can use a FillLayout, or you can use GridLayout with a GridData on the browser like this: "new GridData(SWT.FILL, SWT.FILL, true, true);"
The browser will take all the available space in the parent.

Then in the browser you setText() like this :
<textarea style="width:100%;">
Your text.
</textarea>


If you want to use the whole screen you can simply open a Dialog and override this:
@Override
protected Point getInitialSize() {
	return new Point(PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getDisplay().getClientArea().width , PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getDisplay().getClientArea().height);
}
@Override
protected Point getInitialLocation(Point initialSize) {
	return new Point(0, 0);
}


Sorry if I misunderstood your problem.

Thank you so much. I used a Fill-Layout but it didn't work. The solution in this case was that I have missed to wrap the text widget into a ScrolledComposite.
That's why it didn't resized on the Page. Now it does just fine.

I am not sure what you mean by your second example but I will try that with a Dialog to see what it does.
Anyway, this is very helpful.

Regards
G.
