Hi,

I want to port my HTMLayout wrapper from DFL to DWT and make a HTMLayout
control, but before I proceed I need the Display.syncExec. Is it implemented
already in the Windows port?

Thank,
bobef

Display.syncExec is implemented. In dwt-samples there is a related testcase. See user/torhu_synctest.d HTMLLayout, sounds like it would depend on the browser control? SWT has a browser control, which is not yet ported. http://www.eclipse.org/swt/widgets/

No, it will depend on http://www.terrainformatica.com/htmlayout/ . It is not layout in the sense of another SWT layout class.

The browser control i mentioned is also not a layout. It is a control widget. So probably the DWT browser control will have the functionality of the htmllayout port ?

I only mention that because HTMLayout sounds like a layout :)

No, because the browser is slow, unlike HTMLayout. And the browser is not customizable at all. What I see from the docs it is only there to display pages. HTMLayout on the other hand is not real browser.

I don't know about HTMLayout but the browser in DWT/SWT uses a platform specific browser or firefox, is that so slow ?
