SWT Text word wrap with GridLayout and horizontal grab

Hey guys,

the automatic word wrapping starts to drive me nuts ...

What I have is a SWT Text control that I embed into a GridLayout, setting the grab property of the LayoutData to true, because I want the text field to adjust it's width to the available leftover space.

When I start the program with text in it, the Text control will have the width of the longest line it contains. No wrapping whatsoever.


Any ideas ??

Thanks
