Ah. Then you're almost certainly completely out of luck. That would likely be a massive change to the way that VE works, and not something you could just flick a switch to configure, so no.
The only way you'd do that is if you used VE to create the GUI, then instantiated it, and iterated over the components and constructed an appropriate form yourself.
You might also look at SWTDesigner (I think) or the other WindowsBuilderPro type Eclipse apps which might offer that kind of functionality; but AFAIK this is unlikely with the current VE.

This is an abstract from the description of "(3629) Extending the Eclipse
Visual Editor - deep dive" a short tutorial planned to be presented in
2) Using an alternative persistence format other than Java, such as XML.
This is useful for those who are using technologies such as XSWT, XAML,
SwingML and other markup languages to describe their GUI.
This gave me the hope that it could be done. I do understand it would be
very involved. Guess I will have to wait till the conference to figure it
