Hi,

I know that SWT/JFace is not designed for customized look & feels, but I
still wonder if there are any recommended strategies how to build them.

Suppose that you have designed your own button: how do I make use of this
button in a standard composite SWT component that is incorporating a
standard button that I would replace with my own? Or can I only use it
inside my own custom composite components?

How far (if at all) can I go? Is it possible to use standard JFace
components that are incorporating my own components?

I know, there is no concept of a "pluggable" look and feel in SWT so there
are probably no easy answers to these questions, but I would also be
interested in solutions that are not that pretty (code copying of standard
composites to a customized L & F package etc.)

I would appreciate any thoughts on this.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

The following article about the implementation of custom widgets in swt
should provide a good starting point:
http://eclipse.org/articles/Article-Writing%20Your%20Own%20W idget/Writing%20Your%20Own%20Widget.htm .
