CSS Styling tips for an RCP app


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. We will then turn our attention to how to make use of the engine to style your RCP app, including how to hook up your CSS with the existing Color and Font definitions and how to extend the engine with your own custom property handlers. By the end of the talk, you will have a definite idea of what you can do with the styling engine and how to go about doing it.
