ok - so I'll only use SWT widgets in my Views designed by SWTdesigner

I've seen this - and also noticed that the RCPMail sample uses the
SWTWidget Tree instead of the TreeViewer.
but I only wanted to be sure, that I understand it right - thats the
reason for my question

these additional cool features are the main reason I want to use it ;-)
but at the moment I have to figure out my design - workflow how I can
and then make the changes for use of Riena - controller and ridgets.
If I don't find a practicable way to do this then I have to go without
because the use of SWTDesigner is mandatory for my project
btw: do you have also tests for the use of Drag'n'Drop or is this out of
and all works as expected from a normal application ?
