Colleagues, what do you think about of making Pretty SWT. I mean some kind of decoration over original SWT framework.

The main ability of such "pretty swt" is:
* better API from java point of view, without redundant "public" unusable methods
* getters and setters instead of direct fields accessing
* friendly constants names instead of great "SWT" class with all possible constants.
and some other.

In case you are agree, please put your ideas for the pretty SWT to be. In case you are not agree, please put your comments here too Smile

Does your idea of pretty SWT deliver a skinnable SWT over a new API or just a more suitable API to the current SWT?

Kind regards
Armin

I mean a more suitable API over current.

For example, when you implement own "Listener" there is a generic "Event" object with a generic set of fields that simantic value depends on the event class.

In the pretty API the event will have only those getters that necessary to the current event class.
