Hey Guys,

I have an application where i need to show a modal MWindow onTop of the Main MTrimmedWindow. The modal MWindow which should popup comes from a fragment.xmi and is contributed from another plugin at the startup of the Application, it's something like a LoginWindow. Until now the contribution and the viewing onTop of the MainWindow works fine, but i don't find a way tho make it modal (block the MainView) & closeable. Is there a best practice way for this without coming in contact with the raw SWT Stuff (allocate manually a second Shell i.e)?

thank you in advance!

Not yet - I think there is already a bug report for the CSS-Engine to
allow you to specify the stylebits used to create a window, this way you
tag your MWindow with "modal" and the renderer would to the right thing.

It might although be that modality is such a central concept that we add
it the model? In 4.3 we'll add Dialogs/Wizard to the Workbench-Model and
we should revisit this by then.

Ah ok then I will wait until 4.3 (4.3M1 aka 4.2.1 ?)

If you ask me, modality is conceptional not part of CSS. It's more a layout paradigm then a styling one.

greetings,

thomas
