SWT Components


I need more information on creating controls from scratch. I have gone through the creating controls document but it is unclear to me how the SWT control is rendered. I see that in the ITagHandler interface we have some methods for generating HTML but i do not see anything for SWT. How does this work?




the API for SWT components is available for customers only currently.

Basically you have to subclass a certain SWT component, main aspect being to render the “body part” of the component and to specify of height and width so that it can be put in parallel to existing components.

We are in the process of documenting the SWT API (Java API exists, but no tutorial as with HTML controls yet). May I ask you to directly contact Software AG for more details and for receiving the API doc? Thanks…
