I would like to add a generic banner to be used by all windows in an E4 application, in a similar way to how the wizard dialogs have an image at the top of the page. Any one know how this can be implemented in E4?

You have 2 choices:
a) Put a custom Part directly in the MWindow
b) Specialize the WBWRenderer (=WorkbenchWindowRenderer)

I'll try to write up some informations on this subject hopefully in the
next time. The problem is that b) is not yet easily done because we have
no contribution story for renderers.

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the info. I am not so sure I understand how A) works. If I add a custom part to MWindow, does that mean all parts added to the window will extend the custom part? I guess what I am trying to accomplish is to have the application/window have a banner and when parts are added to the window each part can have its own title style but still have the application window have the generic banner. I am still new to programming with the Eclipse framework, so I apologize if these questions sound a bit odd.

Thanks for your help. I'll take a look at MWindow tonight.
