Hi

Multi Edit Dialog Box that opens on F2 button presing has caret location in the middle.
Is there a way to bring it on left of the dialog.


Regards
Ambuj

Yes, you are able to specify dialog settings via the EditConfigAttributes.EDIT_DIALOG_SETTINGS config attribute. You need to put a value to the dialog settings map for the key ICellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_LOCATION.

An example is shown in the EditorExample.

Hi Dirk

Thanks for the prompt reply.

.DIALOG_SHELL_LOCATION will specify the location of the Multi Edit Dialog
What I need is the location of the cursor inside the dialog, so that when ever the user enters the value it must begin from left not from the center
I guess you were talking about the below code

//configure custom dialog settings

Display display = Display.getCurrent();
Map editDialogSettings = new HashMap();
editDialogSettings.put(CellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_TITLE, "My custom value");
editDialogSettings.put(CellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_ICON, display.getSystemImage(SWT.ICON_WARNING));
editDialogSettings.put(CellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_RESIZABLE, Boolean.TRUE);

Point size = new Point(400, 300);
editDialogSettings.put(CellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_SIZE, size);
int screenWidth = display.getBounds().width;
int screenHeight = display.getBounds().height;
Point location = new Point((screenWidth / (2 * display.getMonitors ().length)) - (size.x/2), (screenHeight / 2) - (size.y/2));
editDialogSettings.put(CellEditDialog.DIALOG_SHELL_LOCATION, location
);


Can you please suggest.

That is part of your style configuration. I assume you are also showing the cell value centered and not left aligned. Try to register a different HorizontalAlignmentEnum for DisplayMode.EDIT
