Hi all

I started on the contribution of welcome and I'm bit lost. So, I have
two questions :

1.1/ How I can use SWT instead of html to contribute to a welcome page
framework ?

2/ I'm working on eclipse welcome framewok. I have to add a page in the
root page like "overview", or "migrate", ...
in my plugin:
-------------------
<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension">
<configExtension
content="introContent.xml"
configId="org.eclipse.ui.intro.universalConfig">
</configExtension>
</extension>
<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension">
<configExtension configId="org.eclipse.ui.intro.universalConfig"
content="content.xml"/>
</extension>
-----------------
in the introContent.xml file:(to create a page)
------------------------
<introContent>
<extensionContent content="content.xml" path="root/head-anchor" />
<page id="IdPage" content="content/cont.xhtml"/>
</introContent>
----------------------
but it doesn't work.

can someones help me? or give me a samples about this.

best regards
Hassan

If you are looking to extend universal intro there is a plugin wizard
which will help you to get started.

From the workbench menu select File/New/Project/Plug-in Project
Give the project a name, hit Next and Next again
On the page titled Templates select "Custom plug-in wizard"
Hit Next
Select Universal Welcome contribution

When Eclipse is started you will see a contribution has been added to
the Overview page.

The SWT presentation is a fallback presentation which is used if the
browser widget cannot be created, which can happen on some Unix and
Linux systems if Eclipse cannot determine where the browser is installed.
