Dear vExperts,

is there any way to embed the VEX editor into a modal popup editor?
I suspect it's more of a generic question (how to embed any editors into a dialog), but maybe there is some useful special advice for the visual editor.

Will I have to copy large parts of the VEX/WTP editors' code into my dialog/controller block? Do I need much more than just the SourceViewer + a Text widget somehow configured to work with autocompletion and the visual display. Is this at all possible?
thanks for any hints,
Gergo

Hi Gergo,

I did this some month ago for an article I wrote for the German Eclipse
Magazin. You can find the code example here:

https://github.com/ftl/vex-examples

Here, the VexWidget is reused. Everything else (e.g. the completion
dialog, any special actions to insert or modify XML) has to be redone.
But it is on our list to provide generic solutions for this use case. So
if you have something which could also be useful for other, feel free to
contribute ;-)

Florian,

that was really helpful - almost exactly what I want, works nicely and it looks straightforward.
Will just have to make it a bit sexier with (toolbar, autocompletion), and contribute back, of course:)

BTW, a piggyback question: is there a way to hide the markers > and < around elements, in the VexWidget?

Thanks a million!

Gergo

Nope, not yet.
