DropDowns in landscape views


DropDown controls in landscape Sheet controls appear to only occupy part of the width of the sheet/screen. In particular they are left aligned and are only as wide as they they would be if the sheet was in portrait mode.


This makes the sheet look a bit weird - quite a bit

of white space to the right - like this sentance..


Is the expectation that developers use the 'setPreferredWidth()' on the Drop down control to force it to be a more 'sensible' width or is this just a bug ?


Our expectation is that the control would have sized itself correctly, it manages it on portrait sheets but not landscape sheets.....
