Re: [cdt-dev] How to arrange options on OptionCategory with MBS like on SWT composites?

This is not currently possible using MBS unless you want to modify the
code.  You could modify the page to use a grid layout but this doesn't work
so well as some of JFace's field editors do not have all their component
widgets placed in a composite (or at least they didn't at the time).  This
was causing field editors such as the file browse field editor to be
rendered on more than one row of the grid, which looked terrible.  This is
why we use the flat layout.

It's certainly possible for the MBS to handle more complicated GUI layout
decisions if the extension markup for MBS were to provide a way to specify
the information.  I would suggest filling an enhancement request, although
to be realistic I don't think this would get worked on for CDT 4.0 given
everyone's workload.  Contributors wanted :-)

  :       on   SWT composites?                                             

Hello all,

Please is there any way to arrange & organize MBS provided
Options (check boxes, lists, text ...) the way we want
(ordering them HORIZONTALLY for example).
Because with MBS every new option is put under the
previously added one.
In SWT we use Composites to do that is their
a mean to do the same with MBS & How?

Thanks in advance.
