I copied the code below from an Eclipse site:

Display display = new Display ();
Shell shell = new Shell(display);
FormLayout layout = new FormLayout();
layout.marginWidth = 3;
layout.marginHeight = 3;
shell.setLayout(layout);

marginWidth is underlined with an error
Syntax error on token "marginWidth", VariableDeclaratorId expected after
this token

marginHeight is underlined as an error
Syntax error on token "marginHeight", VariableDeclaratorId expected after
this token

and the period after shell in shel.layout(layout) is underlined as an error
Syntax error on token(s), misplaced construct(s)

The word layout in the parenthesis is also flagged as an error
Syntax error on token "layout", VariableDeclaratorId expected after this
token

Is your project a plugin project (that depends on org.eclipse.ui or
org.eclipse.swt)? Or is it a java project (that has the SWT jars in the
build path)?

I cut and paste your code into an empty class and it was fine:

--------
package org.eclipse.ui.tests;

import org.eclipse.swt.layout.FormLayout;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell;

public class RunAway {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Display display = new Display ();
Shell shell = new Shell(display);
FormLayout layout = new FormLayout();
layout.marginWidth = 3;
layout.marginHeight = 3;
shell.setLayout(layout);
}
}
--------
