Hi all,

For scientific visualization, data analysis, etc.. there are a number of scenarios where one has a lot of views open, sometimes of identical type. I've figured out how to get some fine-grained control over this, including having view location persisted across launches of a group of views.

But there are a couple of cases that I can't figure out a good hack for and in general there isn't a whole lot of support for this kind of view customization. What there is is all wrapped up in the extension points, which don't allow any dynamic controls and have limited options. In fact the workbench seems sort of to go out of it's way to prevent programmatic control over (inter) view location and sizing. Smile Does anyone have any workable patterns for the following programmatically:

1. Doing a view cleanup, such that views of odd sizes are all distributed evenly.
2. When adding views that share a primary id, having them all added so they are the same size.
3. Moving views to specific position within a set of other views.

thanks in advance for any ideas,

Miles
