Hey all,

i have an rcp application and added some ToolItems to my Toolbar. Now i
want to change the Background Color of my Toolitem and set a larger font,
but i cannot find any method like setBackground() or setFont() like i.e.
in a TableItem.

Is it possible to set another font (or only fontsize) and background to a
ToolItem?
Thanks alot and greetz
Thomas

Is this too easy or impossible ;-)?

Hi, sorry for the late reply,

This isn't currently supported. I could not find any pre-existing requests
for it, so I don't know if there is a technical reason for these omissions,
or if they were simply deemed to not be valuable. If you want you can log a
Feature Request for this at
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Platform &component=SWT&bug_severity=enhancement .

A workaround that should somewhat get around this would be to create an
Image with the text and background colour you want and set this image as the
ToolItem content.

Hey Grant,

thanks for your reply, better getting an answer late than getting no
answer ;-) I discussed about that problem with other developers and we
came to the result that a toolbar is a toolbar and maybe should not have a
pink (or any other colored) background ;-) and thats the reason why i
wonĊ½t do a feature request. Starting doing such things makes the
application not to look native, so we try to convince our boss to get rid
of this requirement ;-)
Anyway thanks for reply and your workaround,

Thomas
