Hello,

I'm just programming a simple rcp application with one view. In this view
I test the SWT-AWT Wrapper class.
In the createControlPart() method of the view I wrote this:

Composite awtContainer = new Composite(parent, SWT.EMBEDDED);
Frame curtFrame = SWT_AWT.new_Frame(awtContainer);

MenuBar menubar = new MenuBar();
Menu fileMenu = new Menu("File");
fileMenu.add(new MenuItem("Open"));
fileMenu.add(new MenuItem("Close"));
menubar.add(fileMenu);

curtFrame.setMenuBar(menubar);

But I can't see my menubar. Is it possible to add a awt menubar to a awt
frame in a swt rcp window? What's wrong with my code?

Thanks in advance
Benny

This won't work. An EmbeddedFrame can't have its own menu bar and AWT
doesn't access the native menu bar created by SWT.
