Custom property editor for colors [message #139141] Wed, 18 July 2007 15:52 Go to next message

We will create an SWT application with a large number of windows, so than
many different people will contribute on designing these with the Visual
Editor. To ensure a consistent look we would like to limit the colors
which can be selected in the property editor. This should apply to the
color property editor for all widgets (also standard ones like
org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Label). Is there a way one can do this in VE?

In general, you can define a your property editor using the override
mechnism in your plugin.xml:
<override

package="org.eclipse.swt.widgets"

path="overrides/org/eclipse/swt/widgets">

</override>

Of course, you need to create a plugin and a subclass of VE editor.

Best regards
