Is there a possibility to get the events fired by the OS when settings
like screen resolution, colours and fonts, ... are changed?

Background: The SWT widgets correctly change their colour when the
settings change. However, I need these events in my own widget class
(delegate to Text).

Thanks

I've been trying to get to this bug report for a long time and it keeps
falling off a cliff. Since it requires new API and we are API frozen for
M6, it looks like it won't happen for M6. It is still possible to change
API, but it's harder. In the meantime, if you recode you class to query the
system colors every time instead of saving them, then your widget will draw
correctly when they change.
