Hello guys, I have a question regarding an Eclipse RCP application.
I have a view consisting of multiple labels, text areas, combo boxes, checkboxes etc. This view can be navigated with the keyboard by using the <tab> key, and it moves the cursor from element to element.
What i need is that when it reaches a checkbox to highlight it so that the selection is visible to the user. This doesn't happen by default. Is it even possible in eclipse rcp?

That is called focus and it is enabled by default. For example, take a look at Window > Preferences > General where you'll see the first three options are checkboxes ("Always run in background", "Keep next/previous editor, view, and perspectives dialog open", and "Show heap status"), and they are tabbable with focus.
