IFolderLayout folder vanishes... [message #413469] Thu, 03 March 2005 12:54 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm having a perspective with a standalone list view
on the left side and an IFolderLayout folder with a
placeholder for some detail views. On application startup
the perspective creates the left side view spanning
about one third of the area, the empty folder gets
displayed in the remaining part. This is what I would
expect.

While running the appliation some detail views open
in the folder, everything's fine. But if the last
detail view gets closed, I would expect the folder
to be displayed empty the same way it was displayed
on startup (like the editor area would stay visible
even if the last editor was closed). But it collapses,
the left side list view automatically gets larger and
spans the whole area. Any ideas how to prevent the
folder area from collapsing ? I tried to set the
layout to be fixed and the views not to be movable,
but that didn't help.

Regards,
Axel

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem and wanted to ask if an solution came up
in the mean time for that problem?

My application has one standalone view on the left side that controlls
"details views" that are set to a IFolderLayout located on the right
side. If the last detail view is closed the standalone view from the
left side spans the whole area.
My application uses the "RCP Mail Template" example as code basis and
the general gui set up is similar to the mail template example.

Regards,
Robert

that's not a problem, it's a feature :-)

The Editor Area is the only folder that can hang around empty. All
other view stacks disappear when empty.

I'm actually not sure why it's displaying the original empty folder, but
I can see that it's inconsistent.

There must be an open bug in bugzilla to fix this behaviour.

Later,

In ApplicationworkbenchWindowAdvisor class, override method isDurableFolder and return true. Using this folder will never dispose, even all views displayed in folder get disposed.

Problem with this API is that it does not survive a restore on the next
start up!
