Hy all,

how can I modify the background color of a deselected table/tree item?
In my SWT application I have two tables A and B. If I select an item from table A the item gets a blue background. If I now select an item from table B the item from table A gets "light gray" background.
This gray is sometimes confusing.
Can I disable this behavior or set the item color to normal background color?

Thanks alot

If you do not want the selection of the disabled item to be visible you can create the Table with the style SWT.HIDE_SELECTION.

If you want to change the color then you have to use custom drawing --> see Snippet234 and Custom Drawing
