This how-to describes how to brand the SWT client.

Icons

Steps

The icons that will be referenced must be placed in the SWT client's resources/icons directory (e.g. org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons)

In order to customize the icon an application shows in its title bar and in the windows task bar, the following property below of the product must be modified in the org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt\plugin.xml file:

  <extension
      id="product"
      name=""
      point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.products">
   <product
         name="minicrm"
         application="org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt.application">
      <property
            name="windowImages"
            value="resources/icons/Ora16.png,resources/icons/Ora32.png,resources/icons/Ora48.png,resources/icons/Ora64.png,resources/icons/Ora128.png">
      </property>
      ... remaining properties ...
   </product>
</extension>

In addition, the icons must also be added to the product definition of the org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt\products\development\minicrm-swt-client-dev.product file:

 <product name="minicrm" id="org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt.product" application="org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt.application" useFeatures="false" includeLaunchers="true">
 ... other entries ...
 <windowImages
   i16="/org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons/Ora16.png"
   i32="/org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons/Ora32.png"
   i48="/org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons/Ora48.png"
   i64="/org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons/Ora64.png"
   i128="/org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt/resources/icons/Ora128.png"/>
 ... other entries ...
</product>

Alternatively, the icons can be defined in the visual product editor on the Branding tab:

Splash screen

Steps

Adding a splash screen for SWT is trivial. The file must be names Splash.bmp and be located in the root directory of the SWT client: org.eclipse.minicrm.ui.swt\Splash.bmp.

If you want to add a progress bar and display a progress message you can do so in the Splash tab of the product editor:
