Hello All,

I'm develloping a new application that basically exposes some complex items from a database (how original !! :) and I would really like to spice up a little bit the things with a feature that is new to me.
I'd like to use a layout very similar to the eclipse manifest Editor :
* each opened item would open a new view in the corresponding folder layout (no probs) with the tab on the top part of the page
* but each view will be opened with some tabs on the bottom part of the layout which will enable the user to choose between the main view and other pages with some underground properties of the item (like in the manifest editor : Overview, Depencies, Runtime... pages).

Can someone give me a hint or some links to help me ?
Has someone an idea of how (or where) it's done in eclipse ?

I've seen the TabbedPropertySheetPage object (see http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-Tabbed-Properties/ta bbed_properties_view.html) that might fit, but I'm not sure.

Thanks by advance for the help

Bruno

If u want u'r UI to have the look of Manifest editor .... i don suppose Tabbed Property sheet page would do it for u !!

U should look into Eclipse Form editor API .... Here are a fewlinks

Hey thanks for the hint, the links have been very useful.
It's exactly what I've been looking for.

Furthermore, the forms plugin has also been implemented on RAP so it's perfect for my both rap and rcp app.

If some other guys are interrested in such forms for both RCP and RAP, here is a procedure I've been told that can be helpful for developpers that use Eclipse and want to have some sample directly in their workspace :

+ Open CVS perspective
Window> Open Perspective> Others
CVS Perspective

+ Create a new connection with :
Host: dev.eclipse.org
repository path : /cvsroot/rt
user anonymous
+ browse HEAD folder to
org.eclipse.rap/sandbox/org.eclipse.ui.forms.examples

+ To import : right click on the project and checkout

Hope this can help !
