Hi All,

Any idea or example on implementing Custom Look and Feel on SWT. Similar to the
LnF in Swing or Skinnable Buttons ???


Thanks
Mansoor

You don't. The look and feel is dictated by the operating system.

<font face="serif">A possible solution would be to write an API that
sits on top of SWT and dynamically chooses whether to use the native
widgets (through SWT) or use emulated widgets (which would ultimately
extend Canvas in the SWT API).&nbsp; However, since the point of SWT is to
achieve a perfectly native LAF, I really don't see why you would
attempt to tack emulation on top of it.<br>
