How to know if a perspective is custom or predefined? [message #526826] Tue, 13 April 2010 03:41

I need to know if a perspective (described by an IPerspectiveDescriptor) represents a custom perspective. If so, I also need the id of the original perspective from which it was saved.
It seems PerspectiveDescriptor.getOriginalId() can be used to solve this problem, but that class is internal and I guess I should not use it.
Why is getOriginalId() not defined in the IPerspectiveDescriptor interface? Is there another way to solve this problem?
