GUI functionality

Postby TMehrens » Tue Jul 24, 2007 8:51 am

I am trying to provide additional GUI functionality to a form and wondering if this is already provided through Instantiations or if I will need to code this.

1. Provide autoskip on the form.

Is there a property setting to set up a Text SWT control to automatically skip to the next Text control once the Text limit has been reached? An example would be that once you entered 8 numerics for a date the cursor would skip to the next Text control on a form.

2. Is there a way to set up the Enter Key so it will act as the Tab Key?

You can do all of the above using event handlers on the various widgets.

I am not aware of anything in SWT that will do this automatically.
