Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] [platform-ui-dev] Theming and CWidgets

I love the idea of experimenting with different UI and workflows. It would be even greater if we could capture those experiments in screencasts so we can all get a good look at how they went and help guide us going forward knowing what works and doesn’t. Many of us are visual thinkers and a picture, or video, goes a long way.

Although CTabFolder does provide a bunch of custom stuff, I think it would be possible to build a usable Eclipse theme using purely native widgets. I did an experimental implementation of this based on the native TabFolder some time around the Eclipse 3.2 timeframe and I demoed it during my EclipseCon presentation. I think if we gave it some time and attention, we could build something fully native and quite pleasant to use. It wouldn't look like today's Eclipse, though.

Thanks for those explanations. I opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=501482 about CCombo and https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=501483 for CLabel. And it seems like the CTabs are still highly relevant then (despite some possible improvements in the renderer).
