In java the methods without protection attribute are package visible 
only. In D they are public and making them "package" would make them 
also non-virtual and this would change behaviour. I did not yet spend 
time to establish those access restrictions in DWT.

As a concequence, in DWT you can access methods that are not part of the 
public API of SWT. "showWidget" is an example. Please use only methods 
that are explicit "public", or use the javadoc

Instead of showWidget, i think setVisible(bool) is doing what you want.
