Hello everybody,

I'm developing a prototype using RAP, basically it must work in this way:
-I draw a set of figures and when i do click over some, should open a window over the drawing with a particular content about it(not only textual content, else buttons and form elements too).
My problem is that i don't know how to open a new floating window from my current View.
This problem is because i haven't really a good knowledge about of SWT, RWT or other GUI toolkit on Java, in fact, I'm learning and reading now about this.
Excuse me if this is a really basic question but you are the unique that i can ask and i haven't found explicit information on the web.
Please excuse my english too.
Thank you in advance.

Hi Francisco,

In short, you can open a dialog window in SWT like this:

Shell dialog = new Shell( parentShell, SWT.DIALOG_TRIM );
dialog.setLayout( ... );
.... add contents to dialog shell
dialog.pack()
dialog.open();

You can get the parent shell from ViewPart -> getSite().getShell().

If you want to learn SWT by example, you should check out the SWT

HTH, Ralf
