Changing SWT Look and Feel

Experts,

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
Joe

Well, SWT is much more platform-specific than swing. For the price of pluggable L&F. It uses controls from the operating system, providing user with familiar L&F on each platform. Unless you want to reimplement a sort of swing, or find third-party library, swt is not for you. BTW, are you sure you need same L&F on different platforms? IMO users don't oftem move from one OS to another and use same application everywhere. Much more oftem they switch between applications within single OS and expect them to be consistent.

Hmm, nothing more within 7 pages of results for "pluggable look and feel SWT" Try it youself for advocacy against PLAF :)
