SWT Designer allows you to create the views, editors, perspectives, pref pages, composites, etc. that comprise Eclipse SWT & RCP applications and plug-ins.

In the designer you can select the 'data' property and enter data for a widget. This converts into code like 'widget.setData("key", "value");'
The setData method can handle an object type as the second argument but through the designer you can only enter 'String' type objects, can this be changed/enhanced.
Maybe add to the right of the text field in the 'data' dialog a Combo that would translate what is in the text field into the object type selected in the Combo.
If you wanted the value to be a boolean then user could enter a valid value in the text field and then select the boolean item in the Combo. The value would be converted by the Boolean.parseBoolean method.
Just an idea thanks for listening.

At some point, yes. I don't know when though.
