Hi,

I'm interested in displaying HTML text in an app I have that doesn't use
SWT. Is there a way I can use SWT's WebKit integration to ask it to
render the text in an image that I can reuse?

TIA,
J.-P.

Hi,

I don't think there's a way to do this, the webkit natives that swt
binds to are those that are needed specifically for its provision of the
Browser control. You can investigate whether webkit provides the
natives that you need, and if so then bind directly to it (not through
swt). I don't remember seeing these, but it's possible that they're
there and I just ignored them if they weren't useful for the Browser
implementation.

Hi Grant,

Thanks for your comments. I abandoned this track and went for Flying
Saucer instead: http://code.google.com/p/flying-saucer/

Granted, the capabilities are much more limited, but enough for my use case.

Cheers,
J.-P.
