A view or "window" can be deattached and moved out of the main window so that it becomes a free window. If I choose to close it and then open it up again by using
Window->Show View->MyView I get the view back at the same position where I closed it, free from the main window.

My question is, is this possible to achieve from code so that whenever I open up my window (even if a user has never opened Eclipse before) and the user clicks Window->Show View->MyView the window should automaticly be free from the main window. Again, I would like to make this possible from code.

I dont understand much of what your requirement is. Have u tried using PreferenceDialog anytime which can give independent Window like feel .
