Background image support in eSWT has been a long time coming. The eSWT API
for supporting background images (setBackgroundImage, setBackgroundMode) was
introduced in eRCP 1.2, but Windows Mobile did not make it easy to implement
the API. As opposed to some OS's where the native widgets directly support
such API, for Windows Mobile, each eSWT widget had to implement the function
itself.

But now that we have it mostly completed, you should be able to create some
great looking UIs. Here is a screenshot of the example:
http://www.eclipse.org/ercp/background-image-example.jpg Please check out
the attached example running with the latest eRCP nightly build. Note that
this support is Beta level and the Combo, Slider, and Tree widgets are not
yet supported. If you find bugs in the use of any other widgets please let
us know via a bug report. Also note, that this support is not in the win32
version of eSWT. So for now, if you want to execute on win32, it might be
best to have your app catch "Not Implemented" exceptions around these API
calls.
