Hello guys

I am using SWT to develop an application for windows. But I don't wan't the UI to be changed in diffrent operating
systems. Is there any way to set a permanent Look and Feel for SWT, Also Is it possible to change the look and feel
for SWT, such as jgoodies exist for Swings.

I don't want to use Swing, so don't advice me to switch to Swing.

Thanks

As far as I know, the answer is no. At least not without a bunch of work. You see, the thing about SWT is that you are actually making calls to the OS to draw the widgets. So if you ask Windows to draw a button, you get a windows button. If you ask Linux to draw a button you get button from GTK, KDE/QT, or whatever windowing system is being used. OSX, same deal.

That being said...

If you are developing an application for windows why are you concerned about other operating systems?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
