Hey,

i'm developing a small Eclipse4 RCP Application and i want to mimic the Eclipse IDE Look & Feel, is there a simple way to achieve this?

index.php/fa/16213/0/
back: my Eclipse IDE (with fancy blue rounded tabs)
front: my RCP Application (no color, not rounded etc.)

what i have tried so far in plugin.xml:

<property
    name="cssTheme"
    value="org.eclipse.e4.ui.css.theme.e4_default">
</property>
<property
    name="applicationCSSResources"
    value="platform:/plugin/org.eclipse.platform/images/">
</property>

I suspect that you want one of the fully defined CSS files like 'e4_classic_win7.css' (there's a 'css' directory in the same project that you reference the 'images' from.

The one that you're using only defines a number of 'common' styles, not a complete setup...

thanks!

This solved my problem:

<property
    name="applicationCSS"
    value="platform:/plugin/org.eclipse.platform/css/e4_classic_winxp.css">
</property>
<property
    name="applicationCSSResources"
    value="platform:/plugin/org.eclipse.platform/images/">
</property>
