I just notice that this would only change the color of the view bar, not
the color of the application bar. What I could find so far is, that
there is no way to configure the application title bar color.

The color of the application bar is the one that is set in the operating system. If you change the Appearance settings via Control Panel you will see that your rcp application will use them.

Other potential option would be to write your own presentation (follow the links from the stackoverflow). Since I have not done this so far I do not know how much customization will offer this to you.

Can I ask why you need to change this particular color?


Time is what you make of it.

We have an Application that has 2 different versions.
Though the title bar shows different title, but still users want
to identify the versions more easily.

That's why the proposal was there if we can change the application title bar color
because color easily attracts human eyes.

Its possible to change in Swing JFrame Title Bar color, so we thought, if it could be done in Eclipse RCP also application also.

thanks

If you want to make the difference between the two different versions of the application then you could use a different ico images in the product configuration.
I know that this does not solve the initial problem, but this way the users can say that indeed the versions are different.
