I am working on a GUI and an icon that I use in the toolbar is not in the center.

How can I put the icon in the center? I am sending a screen shot in the attachment.

This is the code that I use to add this icon:

        CustomToolbar custToolBar11 = new CustomToolbar(compTB1, SWT.FLAT, "Configuration");
        
        item12 = new ToolItem(custToolBar11.getToolBar(), SWT.NONE);
        item12.setImage(image_floppy_disk); item12.setText("Save"); item12.setToolTipText("Sthg");

Open in new window


And this is the CustomToolbar class that I use:

import org.eclipse.swt.SWT;
import org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Color;
import org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Font;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.GridData;
import org.eclipse.swt.layout.GridLayout;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Composite;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Label;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.ToolBar;


public class CustomToolbar extends Composite {
    private ToolBar toolBar;
    private Label caption;
       
    public CustomToolbar(Composite parent, int style, String toolBarCaption) {
        super(parent, style);
        Font font = new Font(parent.getDisplay(),"Arial",10,SWT.ITALIC);
        final Color lightgray;
        lightgray = new Color (parent.getDisplay(), 140, 140, 140);
        
        setLayout(new GridLayout());
        toolBar = new ToolBar(this, SWT.FLAT);
        caption = new Label(this, SWT.HORIZONTAL | SWT.CENTER);
        caption.setText(toolBarCaption);
        caption.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL_HORIZONTAL)); // center the caption 
        caption.setBackground(parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_GRAY));
        caption.setForeground(lightgray);
        caption.setFont(font);
        toolBar.setBackground(parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_GRAY));
        setBackground(parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_GRAY));
    }

    public ToolBar getToolBar() {
        return toolBar;
    }

    public Label getCaption() {
        return caption;
    }

}

right after instantiation of toolBar add this two lines:

GridData tbGD = new GridData(); tbGD.horizontalAlignment = SWT.CENTER;
toolBar.setLayoutData(tbGD);
