Hello,

First question:
I'd like to see the eWorkbench and all the applications plugged with it fullscreen displayed on a WindowsMobile Device.
I saw that eRCP comes with the MobileShell for this purporse. Is possible to change the Shell where the eWorbench in running into a MobileShell?
I found in some previous post that the eWorkbench shell is instantiate in the workbench.ui package bu I couldn't fine in which class.

Second question.
Even instantiating a new MobileShell with the SWT.NO_TRIM parameter inside an application, the button for displaying the virtual keyboard is still visible in the low part of the screen.
I thougth to solve this calling the method setFullScreenMode(boolean fullScreenMode, boolean showVKBSelector) passing respectively true and false as parameters but this don't affect the vkb button visualization.

Thanks a lot for your help
Simone

The latest builds of eRCP have ui.workbench changed to create MobileShells
instead of plain Shells. Therefore, if you should be able to call
setFullScreenMode on the eWorkbench shell to make is full screen.

The VKB selector has been very problematic in Windows Mobile as it doesn't
seem to be easily/consistently controlled. You are making the right call,
but the showVKBSelector flag is a hint and we try the best we can to either
show or hide it.
