SWT Example Launcher
The Example Launcher is used to launch SWT examples, which can either be Workbench views
or standalone applications.
- Workbench views are examples that are integrated into Eclipse. When the launcher
starts a Workbench view, it is opened in the currently active perspective.
- Standalone applications are launched in a separate window.
For information on how to run the standalone examples without the SWT Example Launcher,
SWT standalone examples setup.
The SWT Workbench view examples can also be launched directly without using the SWT Example
Launcher. SWT Workbench view examples can be found under the SWT Examples category of the
Show Views dialog.
Running the Example Launcher
From Eclipse's Window menu, select Show View > Other.
In the Show View dialog, expand SWT Examples and select the SWT Example Launcher view.
A view containing a list of examples will appear in your current perspective.
When you select an example from the list a brief description of the example is displayed.
Click on the Run button to launch the example.
