I tried showing images in TableViewer and TreeViewer by using getImage() like function in LabelProvider, all works very well!

I'd like to implement a Combo with flags/languages just like the picture in "Shadows" paragraph of ,I tried ComboViewer, the getText() of LabelProvider works well, but the getImage() does not work at all, it cannot show the flag icons! the code is as below, can someone please let me know how to do that?! Thank you!

// where compComboViewer is a Composite container
final Image flagAmerica = SysIcon.loadImage("icon/America.png");
final Image flagChina = SysIcon.loadImage("icon/Canada.png");

// to test if 16x16 icon flagAmerica works, and the answer is YES
Label label = new Label(compComboViewer, SWT.NONE);

final ComboViewer cboLocale = new ComboViewer(compComboViewer, SWT.READ_ONLY);
cboLocale.setLabelProvider(new LabelProvider() {
public String getText(Object element) {
Country country = (Country) element;
return country.getCountryName();
public Image getImage(Object element) {
Image imgFlag = null;
Country country = (Country) element;
switch ( country.getCountryName() ) {
case "America":
imgFlag = flagAmerica;
case "Canada":
imgFlag = flagCanada;
return imgFlag;
Country[] countries = new Country[]{ new Country("America"), new Country("Canada") };

private class Country {
private String countryName;
public Country(String countryName) {
this.countryName = countryName;
public String getCountryName() { return this.countryName; }
public void setCountryName(String countryName) { this.countryName = countryName; }
