Is it possible to change the layout manager in the subclassed composite with a new layout manager (for example group layout or form layout) and reposition the inherited controls?
We currently evaluate swt and swt-designer for our software which is reused in sister-companies, where our gui-composites are sometimes extended with some additional controls. We can not put placeholder in the composite, because we don't know in advance where they have to extend our masks. With absolute layout repositioning would be no problem. But we want to use the dynamic layout of layout managers. Is there any change to do the same with a layout manager (which does not depend on the child order).
Thanks in advance for your ideas

That is currently only possible with null layout. It might be possible with FormLayout in the future. It would not work with GroupLayout.
