Programmatically Arrange Editors/Editor Stacks? [message #322790] Thu, 29 November 2007 02:23 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm wondering if it's possible to programmatically (i.e. from within a
plugin) control the position of editors in Eclipse. I would like to be
able to open an editor and have it automatically appear in a new editor
stack in certain circumstances, rather than the usual behavior of joining
the current stack and covering up the currently active editor. I can't
find anything about this in the documentation or newsgroups.

Thanks,
Sam

There should be something in the newsgroups, since this comes up
occasionally.

There is no API to do this, since its support can be presentation
dependent. However, we do have tests that programmatically drag editors
around, check out org.eclipse.ui.tests.session.Bug95357Test from
org.eclipse.ui.tests
