strange JFace dialog behaviour
Hi everybody, I have a little problem I need help with.
I'm subclassing a jface dialog and overriding the createDialogArea method. The first thing I do is this
then I need to set the size of the dialog. If I use the setSize on the shell it does change to the desired size but it doesn't show the widgets I created later in the method. But if I use the setMinimumSize on that shell everything works fine. The widgets are all layed out in a grid-layout with grid-data that grabs the excess horizontal space.
Composite composite = (Composite)super.createDialogArea(parent);
shell = composite.getShell();
thanks in advance for any help or opinions.
