Igor (or Garra ... what should we call you =;-)

  Your questions unfortunately are more directed at the SWT/JFace newsgroups
than the C Development group ... though I'm very happy to see that you have
been able to integrate and use the same preference components from the 
standard C Editor (Is this LPEX by any chance?).  As far as the preview 
field, you should take a look at the articles on the Eclipse web site 
regarding preference field editors since that is what is being used here
if I remember correctly.
