Hi,
I have GUI that I am creating using SWT package.

The GUI has a toolbar and under the toolbar, I would like to add a text box where I can type.

How can I add this text box in my GUI using SWT package?

I am sending a screen shot in the attachment and I marked the textbox area in red.

right after the horizontal line under the whole tool bar add these lines:
GridData txtGridData = new GridData(GridData.FILL_BOTH); txtGridData.horizontalSpan = 2;
        Text txt = new Text(compTab1, SWT.MULTI | SWT.BORDER | SWT.WRAP | SWT.V_SCROLL);
        txt.setLayoutData(txtGridData);
