Hi all,

I have recently changed my Text widgets to StyledText, but have discovered that they no longer have the default Windows popup/context menu (with all the Edit functionality - Copy, Paste, etc).

I can create a context menu and define all the Edit actions in it and then attach this menu using StyledText.setMenu(). But it's not very neat - the look&feel is not the same. I'm wondering whether swt/jface allow you to either:

1. enable the default system Edit menu explicitly for a widget? Or
2. get the default Edit menu, which you can then attach to a widget, using setMenu()?
