Hello,

I have developed my RCP and it is currently working fine in Windows XP.
But the background theme keeps changes when it is run in windows 7 (or) if the user changes the theme in XP.

Is there any way to provide a common theme to the application, independent of the operating system

Thanks
Nagarajan Ramaswamy

Hi, sorry for the late reply,

Assuming you mean the OS-provided theme then no, SWT always inherits
this, just like it inherits other native widget attributes like fonts,
colours, etc. This is a fundamental aspect of running as a native app,
to let the OS take care of work like this for the purpose of visual
consistency.
