Fully themed scrollbars in Eclipse (Trees, Tables, StyledText) in LiClipse 2.5.2

Ok, LiClipse 2.5.2 is out and it adds support for theming the scrollbars for Trees and Tables by using the Xiliary swt libraries, in addition to the support which was already built in, which allowed StyledTexts to be themed in LiClipse.

Below is a snapshot of LiClipse 2.5.2, in Windows using the LiClipse Dark theme with scrollbars visible for all the elements shown -- enough said ;)


  1. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64 bits), LiClipse 2.5.4.

    The file/directory names in the Package Explorer keep disappearing. They reappear only when the mouse is hovering on them. See the examples:

  2. I'll take a look at that... as a note, are you using LiClipse standalone or as a plugin in Eclipse?

  3. Also, the editing area is not scrollable using the mouse wheel.

  4. Another problem: in Window --> Preference:

    The content of the right panel would not change when you click the items in the left panel.
