Chapter 5. Display

Instances of class Display manage the connection between SWT and the underlying window system.[1] Displays provide many other important capabilities, including API for the event loop, inter-thread communication, timers, and access to default system resources, such as fonts and colors. Displays also provide a number of utility functions that perform user interface thread-specific actions.

[1] On X Windows, a display is a thin wrapper over an X Window display and serves much the same purpose.

Displays do not model individual “computer screens” or monitors, but rather are the single point of contact for all the user interface capabilities the system provides (see the section Monitors, Bounds, and Client Area for more about monitors).
