Window created by dragging Tab out from Workbench - is not resizable! [message #985836] Fri, 16 November 2012 10:28 Go to next message

When dropping a Tab to an area outside of the Workbench - a new Window is created for this Tab.

This Window can not be resized.
This Window is not allowed to be minimized.

Question:
Is there a way to fix that?
It would be really great, if the whole OS functionality (e.g. resize Windows to tile them near each other) would be available.

Resizing works in 4.2 IIRC. After 4.2 that it is a normal window shell with minimize maximize. Which build id are you on?

You are right - the windows, which are created by dragging IDE Tabs - are resizable.

The windows, which are created by dragging Tabs from my RCP Application - are NOT resizable.

Where can I customize that behaviour?


org.eclipse.rcp - 4.2.0.v20120914
org.eclipse.platform - 4.2.0.v20120914

It's a pure e4 Application.
And it seems to use the latest stable build:
