<title>SWT - Text Editor Example</title>
<h2>SWT standalone example - Text Editor</h2>
This example demonstrates how to use a StyledText widget to implement
a text editor with formatting support.
The example has a typical text editor interface.
The <strong>Edit</strong> menu contains <strong>Cut</strong>, <strong>Copy</strong>, <strong>Paste</strong> and <strong>Set Font</strong> items. The toolbar
provides a bold text toggle, three colour tools, and a reset button, all of which operate on the current selection.
<h3>Running the example</h3>
Follow the <a href="swt_manual_setup.html">SWT standalone examples setup</a>
instructions to install and run the example from your workspace.
The "Main" class is <code>org.eclipse.swt.examples.texteditor.TextEditor</code>.
This example can also be run using the <a href="swt_launcher_ex.html">Example Launcher</a>.
Select the <strong>Text Editor</strong> item from the <strong>Standalone</strong> category and click <strong>Run</strong>.
