View Full Version : TabItem in TabPanel not sized correctly

11 Sep 2009, 3:09 PM

I am trying to put a tabitem into a tabpanel.
It doesnt appear to be sizing the tabitem correctly.
I need to use a borderlayout because i have a tree in the west side. For this example i have removed it though.
I also must have the tabpanel.add(tab) statement after the RootPanel.get().add(viewport) because when a user double clicks a node in the tree it opens/adds a tabitem to the tabpanel. I have removed all of that code though in order to create the smallest possible code example of the problem. I have tried calling viewport.layout() after adding the tabitem, but that does not work. I am at a loss as to what else i need to do. seems like a simple thing to me. If you look at the screenshot you will see on the right side that the scrollbar is going below the window.

public void onModuleLoad() {
BorderLayoutData layoutData;

viewport.setLayout(new BorderLayout());

TabItem tab = new TabItem("tab");
tab.setLayout(new FitLayout());
tab.add(new TextArea());

layoutData = new BorderLayoutData(LayoutRegion.CENTER);

viewport.add(tabPanel, layoutData);

That is already fixed in SVN. There are two solutions for you.

1) Add the tabitem before attaching the viewport

2) Call syncsize on the tabpanel after adding the tabitem
