FormLayout attachment selection?

Postby anthonybsd » Tue Aug 08, 2006 1:03 pm

Hi there,

Long-time user, first time poster here. I have a question about using FormLayout attachment selection screen in SWT Designer. Let me describe my situation. I have a Dialog with the FormLayout and a number of labels/text fields arranged in vertical "rows". Like this:


Each control is attached to a control from a previous row using formData.bottom/top/left/right. Like this "actor" label for example:


Now, whenever I try to select the attachment control in the Designer editor


it always defaults to the first control in the list, and not to the one it's currently attached:


In this case the top of the "Actor" CLabel is attached to the processID checkbutton (see above), but when the "Select Control" dialog pops up the topmost widget (previouslyUsedFilters label in this case) is selected.

My question is, has this always been the case? I think I remember SWT Designer honoring FormData attachments in it's prompt for control selection in the past, but I might be mistaken.
