The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

Parameters:
parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
style - the style of control to construct
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException -
  • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
SWTException -
  • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
  • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass
