Create a Sash in SWT

     

In this section, you will study how to create a Sash

In SWT, the class Sash represent a selectable user interface object that allows the user to drag the outline. We have create the Sash first, so that the controls can be attached to it. We have used the class FormData to define the attachments of a control in a FormLayout. To set the FormData into control, we have used the method setLayoutData() and pass the object of this class to the method.

Create the first text box and attach its right edge to the sash. Then create second text box and attach its left edge to the sash.The sash is in between the text boxes.

 

 

 

Here is the code of SashExample.java

import org.eclipse.swt.*;c
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.*;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.*;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Event;
public class SashExample {
  
  public void run() {
  Display display = new Display();
  Shell shell = new Shell(display);
  shell.setText("Show Sash ");
  create(shell);
  shell.pack();
  shell.open();
  while (!shell.isDisposed()) {
  if (!display.readAndDispatch()) {
  display.sleep();
  }
  }
  display.dispose();
  }
  public void create(Composite composite) {
  composite.setLayout(new FormLayout());

  final Sash sash = new Sash(composite, SWT.VERTICAL);
  FormData data = new FormData();
  data.top = new FormAttachment(0, 0); 
  data.bottom = new FormAttachment(100, 0); 
  data.left = new FormAttachment(50, 0); 
  sash.setLayoutData(data);
 
  Text text1 = new Text(composite, SWT.BORDER |  SWT.WRAP);
  data = new FormData();
  data.top = new FormAttachment(0, 0);
  data.bottom = new FormAttachment(100, 0);
  data.left = new FormAttachment(0, 0);
  data.right = new FormAttachment(sash, 0);
  text1.setLayoutData(data);

  Text text2 = new Text(composite, SWT.BORDER|  SWT.WRAP);
  data = new FormData();
  data.top = new FormAttachment(0, 0);
  data.bottom = new FormAttachment(100, 0);
  data.left = new FormAttachment(sash, 0);
  data.right = new FormAttachment(100, 0);
  text2.setLayoutData(data);
}
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  new SashExample().run();
  }
}
