How to customize the background color of controls for entering Boolean values generated by EMFForms? [message #1462239] Wed, 05 November 2014 11:04 Go to next message

Hello!

I have an EMF model, from which I generated UI form and embedded it into a wizard.

The check boxes appear with white background (see below) and it doesn't look nice.

How can I change the background color of the check box (avoid the white strip) ?

I tried to use BooleanControlSWTRenderer sub-class (see below), but it didn't work.

public class MyRenderer extends BooleanControlSWTRenderer {

		@Override
		protected Control createSWTControl(Composite parent, Setting setting) {
			
			
			final Button check = new Button(parent, SWT.CHECK);
			check.setBackground(parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor(SWT.COLOR_GRAY));
			check.setData(CUSTOM_VARIANT, "org_eclipse_emf_ecp_control_boolean"); //$NON-NLS-1$

			return check;

		}
	}


Thanks in advance

Dmitri

Hi,

have you tried how a check button with background set to grey looks
outsite of EMF Forms, meaning on a plain shell? Does it work as expected
there?

Best regards

Jonas
