I want to draw a image in den top of the workbench (as a additional
braqnding). As I read in this group, I have to reimplement the function
createWindowContents of the Class WorkbenchWindowAdvisor - is this the
right way? - I did it as described at the end of the posting.

First it seems to work, but than I saw, that the perspective chooser is
missing and the progressbar in the statusline isn't visible.

Does anyone know which is the right way to brand my application with a
image below the menubar?

many thanks - Tino

public void createWindowContents(Shell shell) {
IWorkbenchWindowConfigurer configurer = getWindowConfigurer();
Menu menuBar = configurer.createMenuBar();

GridLayout shellLayout = new GridLayout();
shellLayout.marginWidth = 0;
shellLayout.marginHeight = 0;
shellLayout.verticalSpacing = 0;

// At this position I added a composite //

if (!"carbon".equals(SWT.getPlatform())) { //$NON-NLS-1$
Label sep1 = new Label(shell, SWT.SEPARATOR |
sep1.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.CENTER, true, false));

Control coolBar = configurer.createCoolBarControl(shell); //
coolBar.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.CENTER, true, false));

Label sep2 = new Label(shell, SWT.SEPARATOR | SWT.HORIZONTAL);
sep2.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.CENTER, true, false));

Control pageComposite = configurer.createPageComposite(shell);
pageComposite.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.FILL, true, true));

Label sep3 = new Label(shell, SWT.SEPARATOR | SWT.HORIZONTAL);
sep3.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.CENTER, true, false));
Control statusLine = configurer.createStatusLineControl(shell);
statusLine.setLayoutData(new GridData(GridData.FILL,
GridData.CENTER, true, false));
