The left column would contain the JFace TreeViewer and the right column would contain a GridLayout. It seems impossible to nest SWT Layouts in WindowBuilderPro, and I see very few online references to nesting SWT Layouts.

cochand wrote:I believe it's accurate to say that it's actually SWT Composites that can be nested.
cochand wrote:Also, SWT Composites may contain SWT Layouts. Thus you can specify multiple SWT Layouts within one window by using a composite, assigning it a layout, putting additional composites inside that layout, and so on, and so on...
