Hello,

is it possible to load an editor in background? I need its functionality,
but not its ui.
How can I do this?

regards
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

I'm reasonably sure that isn't possible. An IEditorPart is stuck in a
hierarchy of visual parts, and it of course has its own controls. I'm
not sure how meaningful it is to even have an editor alive if the user
can't interact with anything.

I'm curious about your scenario though. Can you elaborate at all?

Cheers
Ben

Mmh, the whole point of the editor is the UI ;-)
