The e4 styling engine is the de facto way to dress up your RCP app! Join me for an in depth tour of the styling engine's main features - APIs to tooling to examples; everything you need to get you up and styling. We will start by taking a look at how the IDE makes use of the styling engine and how you can use the provided tools to customize your IDE and create new looks.
You knew you wanted them, *we* knew you wanted them...finally we can do them !
There are a number of features that despite having been clearly identified as desirable (years ago) have never appeared and had essentially been given up for dead. The reason these features never made it to a release is that they were pretty well impossible to do using the 3.x architecture. We've now taken another look and find that using e4 they're actually not that hard.
