I have a view and an editor. When I make a change to the editor, it is marked as dirty (e.g., there is an "*" in the title bar), yet when I try to Rename its associated resource in the view, it does not prompt me to Save changes if the editor is dirty. When performing a Rename in the View, how can I get the View to first prompt me to save changes if its associated editor is dirty?

What element do you rename?

I'm renaming the name of the resource in the view, using the built-in Rename functionality. The Rename should fail because its corresponding editor is dirty (there is a "*" indicating that is the case, and if I close the editor, it does prompt me to save changes), yet, the Rename from the proceeds. The view does not seem to recognize the fact that the resource is dirty.

This works fine for me. What editor are you talking about?

If I try the rename in the Project Explorer in the Eclipse development environment, it works properly. However, I have a custom view and a custom editor that work off of the same resource. I make a change to a field in the custom editor and it is marked as dirty, yet when I go to perform a rename of the resource in the project explorer, it doesn't recognize it as dirty and proceeds with the rename.
