So, in Eclipse, you can split-screen your editors to look at two or more at the same time. This creates multiple "groups" of editors. I'm trying to write a plugin that deals with this functionality, but I'm having a lot of trouble, possibly because I don't know the name used for that grouping component, and this makes it harder for me to search the docs for what I want.

Context: I'm writing a plugin that adds a keyboard shortcut to send the active editor to a different "group" of editors. You can do this by dragging and dropping in Eclipse, but there's no way to do it from the keyboard.

Hi Derek,

AFAIK there is no API for this.

Regards,

Wim

It's called "editor area".
