Hi all,
I've created a CoolBar with some icons. Now, if I change some preferences, I want to redraw the CoolBar. But each time if I create the CoolBar a second time the whole widget disappears. Here's my code:
public void createControls(Composite parent) { = parent;
// create some managers...
CoolBarManager	coolbarmgr = new CoolBarManager(SWT.NONE);
IToolBarManager toolbarmgr = new ToolBarManager(SWT.FLAT | SWT.BOTTOM);
CoolBar coolbar1 = coolbarmgr.createControl(top);
ToolBar toolBar1 = new ToolBar(coolbar1, SWT.FLAT);
coolbarmgr.add(new ToolBarContributionItem(toolbarmgr));

// create a nice tool item
createToolItem(toolBar1, CommandIds.CMD_SOMETHING, 
				Icon.MY_ICON.getImage(IconSize.ToolbarIconSize), preferences.getBoolean(Constants.TOOLBAR_SHOW_SOMETHING));

In createToolItem() I do
ToolItem item = new ToolItem(toolBar, SWT.PUSH);
// some item configurations

And here's my update method:
protected void recreateCoolBar() {
// doesn't work :-( => the coolbar is completely empty after re-creating...

Does anybody out there have an idea how can I dynamically change the CoolBar items? Thanks in advance.
