Hello,

I am new to RCP and I have a questio regarding RCP Views and how do they actually get displayed.

I noticed that the views are getting displayed inside CTabFolders. However the RCP View Composite is not a child of the corresponding CTabFolder. Moreover when I invoke the function "getContorl" on the RCP View CTabItem I got null.

So my question is how is the binding between the RCP View Composite and the RCP View CTabFolder and CTabItem occuring?

Thanks alot for you help...

The Composite that passed into createPartControl(*) is a child of the
shell (or shell client area). View stacks are basically a big shell game.

org.eclipse.ui.internal.presentations.PaneFolder,
org.eclipse.swt.custom.CTabFolder, org.eclipse.swt.custom.ViewForm, and
org.eclipse.ui.internal.presentations.util.ProxyControl work together to
fit the view contents to the size of the stack CTabFolder.
