      • TreeColumn

        public TreeColumn​(Tree parent,
                          int style)
        Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent (which must be a Tree) and a style value describing its behavior and appearance. The item is added to the end of the items maintained by its parent.

        The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

        Parameters:
        parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
        style - the style of control to construct
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
        • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

        public TreeColumn​(Tree parent,
                          int style,
                          int index)
        Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent (which must be a Tree), a style value describing its behavior and appearance, and the index at which to place it in the items maintained by its parent.

        The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

        Note that due to a restriction on some platforms, the first column is always left aligned.

        Parameters:
        parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
        style - the style of control to construct
        index - the zero-relative index to store the receiver in its parent
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        • ERROR_INVALID_RANGE - if the index is not between 0 and the number of elements in the parent (inclusive)
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
        • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

      • checkSubclass

        protected void checkSubclass()
        Description copied from class: Widget
        Checks that this class can be subclassed.

        The SWT class library is intended to be subclassed only at specific, controlled points (most notably, Composite and Canvas when implementing new widgets). This method enforces this rule unless it is overridden.

        IMPORTANT: By providing an implementation of this method that allows a subclass of a class which does not normally allow subclassing to be created, the implementer agrees to be fully responsible for the fact that any such subclass will likely fail between SWT releases and will be strongly platform specific. No support is provided for user-written classes which are implemented in this fashion.

        The ability to subclass outside of the allowed SWT classes is intended purely to enable those not on the SWT development team to implement patches in order to get around specific limitations in advance of when those limitations can be addressed by the team. Subclassing should not be attempted without an intimate and detailed understanding of the hierarchy.

      • setResizable

        public void setResizable​(boolean resizable)
        Sets the resizable attribute. A column that is not resizable cannot be dragged by the user but may be resized by the programmer.
        Parameters:
        resizable - the resize attribute
        Throws:

        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
      • setText

        public void setText​(String string)
        Description copied from class: Item
        Sets the receiver's text.

        Note: If control characters like '\n', '\t' etc. are used in the string, then the behavior is platform dependent.

        Overrides:
        setText in class Item
        Parameters:
        string - the new text
      • setToolTipText

        public void setToolTipText​(String string)
        Sets the receiver's tool tip text to the argument, which may be null indicating that the default tool tip for the control will be shown. For a control that has a default tool tip, such as the Tree control on Windows, setting the tool tip text to an empty string replaces the default, causing no tool tip text to be shown.

        The mnemonic indicator (character '&') is not displayed in a tool tip. To display a single '&' in the tool tip, the character '&' can be escaped by doubling it in the string.

        NOTE: This operation is a hint and behavior is platform specific, on Windows for CJK-style mnemonics of the form " (&C)" at the end of the tooltip text are not shown in tooltip.

        Parameters:
        string - the new tool tip text (or null)
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
        Since:
        3.2
      • setWidth

        public void setWidth​(int width)
        Sets the width of the receiver.
        Parameters:
        width - the new width
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
