When I add an widget (e.g.JTextfield with columns 3) to a panel which of its layout is flowlayout, My JTextfield preferred size will become w:42, h:24.
When I add the same widget to a panel which of its layout is absolute, and select "autosize widget" from the popup menu; the designer makes bounds as w:45, h:25. When I print out the preferred size, I still get w:42, h:24. Isn't the designer supposed to make bounds as preferred size, when you select "autosize widget". Is there a way of customizing this?
Thanks in advance (Window Builder 6.9.2 with Eclipse 3.4 on XP)
