ViewStack overlap to the editor [message #788006] Wed, 01 February 2012 08:33 Go to next message

Hi,

I am developing an application with Eclipse as the target platform. I have to cater to a requirement in which the user can overlap a ViewStack(containing 2 views) to the editor. It is possible to overlap a single view by the showview() but I am just not able to get a stack to overlap with the editor (I have tried to use stack.setMinimised(false), but it is pinning to the editor, thereby reducing the editor area)

Pls help...

Thanks
Elvie

You want to make the view stack show over the editor area? Can you just minimize the editor stack? Or maximize the view stack will make the editor stack disappear.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your reply. I actually want a view stack to have a toggle behaviour like a view(It should not pin itself to the editor therby reducing the editor area).

I don't want the editor to disappear. Everytime the user clicks a particular button, the view stack from the left trimtoolbar should show & should overlap to the editor (clicking anywhere else shouyld make the viewstack disapper). I am able to achieve this with views :

((WorkbenchWindow) PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow()).getActiveWorkbenchPage().toggleFastView(<IViewReference Object>);

I am looking for a similar behaviour with view stacks.

Pls help..

Thanks in advance
Elvie
