The Custom Controls

  • Rob Warner

Chapter 5 details the basic widgets offered by SWT, and Chapter 8 explores advanced widgets suitable for most tasks. The Eclipse developers, however, aimed for a best-of-breed IDE and thus had interface requirements that neither the basic nor the advanced widgets could handle. To answer their requirements, they created the org. eclipse. swt. custom package, which contains new controls to add functionality, makes enhancements to existing controls, and contains new controls to work with existing controls. This chapter examines the following:
  • BusyIndicator

  • CCombo

  • CLabel

  • CTabFolder

  • TableTree

  • Control editors

  • TableCursor

  • PopupList

  • SashForm

  • ScrolledComposite

  • ViewForm
