You can override getPreferredWidth to always return a width of your choice.

Re: Various Text Field in a Manager

Thanks bo, I have applied it now. around the text field, I have used the border using CreateSimpleBorder and the border doesnt show its right edge even after using getPreferredWidth(). Please help. Yet I have to make a grid of TextFields which is based on this small control.

 

Thanks again.

Re: Various Text Field in a Manager

Thanku so much, everyone!

 

I have made a class to display a grid of Editfields. Since I had to display various sizes on one row and then many rows of them. It has worked out nicely

 

Thanks!
