I didn't quite understand which can be a parent control and what can be the container in SWT.
I am creating a small GUI application on eclipse platform. I have to have few buttons, combo, lists, and a table.
Can any of Shell, Composite, org.eclipse.jface.window.Window, org.eclipse.jface.dialogs.Dialog act as a container like frame in AWT? (I want this container to occupy the whole display area of the editor panel of eclipse).
Can I use Shell as a top most window/parent and hold a jface.tableviewer?
Can SWT controls hold Eclipse controls? or it has to be a jface window which contains SWT controls?
for my application, I am planning to use shell as a parent container which has few combo boxes in upper part, a org.eclipse.jface.viewers.TableViewer in the middle and few buttons in the bottom part of the shell.
My question is can a jface.tableviewer be placed on SWT control?
Thanks,
Padma.
