I believe it is properly more appropriate in SWT group especially for
the shell-parent shell behaviour, so paste here for reference and
further discussion.


mmm. You should consult with the SWT guru's in the SWT newsgroup.

You can detach both views in the same group. Then they can come on top of
each other.

But it is an interesting topic. Thanks for sharing a solution.

Regards,

Wim
