Can I do custom painting of a widget on the Workbench? [message #465028] Sat, 03 December 2005 05:17 Go to next message

I'm developing an RCP application and using standard Workbench components.
However, I'd like a slightly different look-and-feel than the default that
Eclipse provides. For example, I'd like to display the Fast View Bar
without borders or a handle, with less padding, and make the buttons
display both an icon and text. Is there anything equivalent to Swing
look-and-feel? Or even a way to override the paint methods on Workbench
widegets?

Thanks,

John

It may not be as rich as you need, but see the presentations and
theme APIs in the Platform UI code and help documentation.

Thanks for your response. The Presentations API only allows for
modification of views and editors. I don't see any way to get at the Fast
View Bar. Is there any way to get at it?

Thanks
