Hi,
I am working on a GUI in Java SWT and I need to write part of the text of an image to a new line.

However, \n and any other html fomratting did not work.

This is the code snippet I have:

item_SaveSelections = new ToolItem(custToolbar_CheckConfiguration.getToolBar(), SWT.PUSH);
item_SaveSelections.setImage(image_floppy_disk); item_SaveSelections.setText("Save selected items"); 

Open in new window



What I want to do is to put a new line character after the word "Save".

Can you please help me with that?

Thanks,

Unfortunately, the answer is... "It can't be done!"

Can you use a shorter label, eg. Save, and then put more useful information in a tooltip with  item_SaveSelections.setToolTipText("Save all selected items"); ?
