I am new to RCP and I have a questio regarding RCP Views and how do they actually get displayed.
I noticed that the views are getting displayed inside CTabFolders. However the RCP View Composite is not a child of the corresponding CTabFolder. Moreover when I invoke the function "getContorl" on the RCP View CTabItem I got null.
So my question is how is the binding between the RCP View Composite and the RCP View CTabFolder and CTabItem occuring?

The Composite that passed into createPartControl(*) is a child of the
shell (or shell client area). View stacks are basically a big shell game.
org.eclipse.swt.custom.CTabFolder, org.eclipse.swt.custom.ViewForm, and
org.eclipse.ui.internal.presentations.util.ProxyControl work together to
fit the view contents to the size of the stack CTabFolder.
