Win7 taskbar grouping [message #754720] Fri, 04 November 2011 01:59 Go to next message

Hi all,

It seems that all java apps are put under the same taskbar group in
Win7, which as stated by some online Win7 doc, are considered as
"similar application".

Is it possible to customize this grouping behaviour (add some Win appId
or something)? Or at least make it consider different jar as NOT similar?


Thanks,
Hei

Win7 uses applicationId for the grouping and according to this

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=294827
(comment #4 and comment #8)

Display.setAppName() should have set the application id in the first time.

With Eclipse 3.7, I try to call Display.setAppName() before
PlatformUI.createDisplay() like the below. Still, all shells dumped to
one taskbar icon:


Display.setAppName(id); // id is ready from a file and different for
every session
Display display = PlatformUI.createDisplay();



Any help is appreciated?

Hi,
any solution to this yet?

I have multiple eclipse instances for completely different purposes (PHP/Java/C++/...)
And I tired hard to get them their seperate pins in the taskbar, to no success.

Even renaming the eclipse.exe does not work They end up grouped together.

Interestingly though, during starting it gets its seperate space in the taskbar.
