Use Group Class in SWT

                         

In this section, you will learn how to use Group class.

In SWT, the class Group of package org.eclipse.swt.widgets provides an etched border with an optional title. In the given example, we have create two groups by using the class Group. In the first group, we have create check boxes and in the second group, radio buttons are defined.

Here is the code of GroupExample.java

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.*;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.*;

public class GroupExample {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Display display = new Display();
    Shell shell = new Shell(display);
    shell.setLayout(new GridLayout());
    shell.setText("Show Group");
  shell.setSize(200,250);
    Group group1 = new Group(shell, SWT.SHADOW_IN);
    group1.setText("Which are your favourite sports?");
    group1.setLayout(new RowLayout(SWT.VERTICAL));
    new Button(group1, SWT.CHECK).setText("Tennis");
    new Button(group1, SWT.CHECK).setText("FootBall");
    new Button(group1, SWT.CHECK).setText("Cricket");
  new Button(group1, SWT.CHECK).setText("Hockey");
    
  Group group2 = new Group(shell, SWT.SHADOW_IN);
    group2.setText("Where is Taj Mahal?");
    group2.setLayout(new RowLayout(SWT.VERTICAL));
    new Button(group2, SWT.RADIO).setText("Lucknow");
    new Button(group2, SWT.RADIO).setText("Agra");
    new Button(group2, SWT.RADIO).setText("Delhi");
    new Button(group2, SWT.RADIO).setText("Mumbai");

    shell.open();
    while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
      if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
        display.sleep();
      }
    }
    display.dispose();
  }
