I've done this on a past project, in editors that extend
In the init() method when I detected invalid input, I opened a JFace
MessageDialog offering the user the option of opening the file in a
plain text editor. If the user declined, I would just call
this.close(false) (inherited from
org.eclipse.ui.forms.editor.FormEditor). It worked fine for 3.3 and 3.4,
but has not been tested in Eclipse 3.5 yet.
Let me know if you can't find the code for FormEditor.close(boolean) and
I can post it. It is pretty simple, just calling the code you describe
above via Display.asyncExec().
Hope this helps,
