Show View in Editor Area [message #488684] Tue, 29 September 2009 17:54 Go to next message

Is it possible to show View (ViewPart) in EditorArea?

My problem:
I have a View where I need to keep fixed size (width). Only possibility
which I have found out is to make Editor Area visible
(layout.setEditorAreaVisible(true)). The problem is I have now all
plugins as ViewPart. Is there any way how to show ViewPart in Editor Area?

Thanks.

Martin

You can have your view implement ISizeProvider to try and maintain its size, or make your perspective fixed.

But you cannot put your view in an editor area.

Unfortunately this interface has the @noimplement annotation which makes
it effectively illegal to implement that interface as a client. Are
there tendencies to change this state or what is the recommended way to
handle that situation?

Thanks,

Hmmm, you're right. But the javadoc for IViewPart says:

* As of 3.4, views may optionally adapt to {@link ISizeProvider} if they have
* a preferred size. The default presentation will make a best effort to
* allocate the preferred size to a view if it is the only part in a stack. If
* there is more than one part in the stack, the constraints will be disabled
* for that stack. The size constraints are adjusted for the size of the tab and
* border trim. Note that this is considered to be a hint to the presentation,
* and not all presentations may honor size constraints.

I would open a bug, since it does appear to be valid to use it with view parts.

You are right, so I added one:
