Hello,

First of all, thank you very much for Nebula and its great collection of widgets.

I have a basic question on the ToggleRenderer implementation in the Grid widget.

It appears that the implementation draws a box with a + or a - in it depending on whether the tree node is expanded or collapsed. This is a deviation from the manner in which a tree is rendered on the underlying OS. For example, on a Windows 7 machine, a Grid that shows up as a tree looks antiquated when compared to the tree that is rendered using a standard SWT Tree (and I can't use a tree as I need resizable rows).

Are there any plans to bring the Grid widget 'closer' to a more native look and feel? It will be fantastic if this is indeed the case.

Thank you,
Prasanna

No not until someone contributes a renderer. You can write your a custom
one to mimic the OS-Widget and then you are free to contribute it back.
