DnD support? [message #1090803] Tue, 20 August 2013 17:04 Go to next message

Does efx support DnD of parts? I noticed there is a bug ticket regarding support for min/max. Does this mean that efx can not currently be used for an rcp with dynamic management of the parts? If so than is such a support planed in the near future?

As a side question, is there a development plan for the next version? Is there a list of missing functionalities?

I've noticed that EMenuService is implemented as PopupMenuService. Are there other such differences between the SWT and FX implementations and is there any documentation about them?

Thanks,

Yarden

The biggest problem is not the implementation in EAP but that JavaFX
tabs do not allow reordering via DnD so we problem need a hacky solution
for FX2/FX8 - I had planned to contribute this feature upstream but
missed the feature freeze deadline.

https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-31574

> such a support planed in the near future?

We are currently working on a release 0.9.0 which hopefully happens in
the days to come.

Not yet a we'll make the release and then but together a plan. If you
have wishes file bug reports/feature requests.

Not a complete one.

OTOH:
- DnD
- Min/Max
- View-Toolbar / Menus are working but would maybe need some love

> I've noticed that EMenuService is implemented as PopupMenuService. Are

The problem is that EMenuService is in a bundle with SWT-Dependencies
there's no good reason for that but because of this we had to invent our
own one.

We'll we have special tags which we documented at
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Efxclipse/Runtime/e4 and yet undocumented new
feature to attach lifecycle to things like MPart/MPerspective/MWindow

Documenting things like EMenuService vs PopupMenuService might something
we should add to the above wiki-page feel free to contribute.

Our playground where all possible functionality is implemented is
http://git.eclipse.org/c/efxclipse/org.eclipse.efxclipse.git/tree/testcases/org.eclipse.fx.testcases.e4
- it's not a nice app but contains tests for all feature we implement
and will implement in future.

Hi @Thomas Schindi,
Follow up about the DnD. Is docking of parts now supported in e(fx)clipse like it is in e4 swt?

The rendering is slightly off while dragging, otherwise it's working great.
index.php/fa/28670/0/

I tried adding the MinMaxAddon (bundleclass://org.eclipse.fx.ui.workbench.renderers.base/org.eclipse.fx.ui.workbench.renderers.base.addons.MinMaxAddon) but I didn't notice any difference.

Also does the DnDAddon support floating part?

Not sure what you mean. If it is the black area around "Another View" this really looks strange. File a ticket at https://github.com/eclipse/efxclipse-rt and describe the problem you see.

a) MinMaxAddon should maximize the view when you double click the on the TabItem
b) Detaching works if you run with "-Ddetachdrag.enabled" in your vm-properties => please note that then you are NOT using native DnD anymore but an emulation

Ok I'll file a ticket for it, I tried on Mac (I was using Linux) it doesn't have the rendering problem with the dragged tab, although when I drag and drop a part all the parts disappear (I guess there must me something wrong with the CleanUpAddon).
For min/max I thought it will handle having the minimized views' icons in a side trimbar where it can be clicked to be maximized again.

Ok, it's not very hard to implement anyway.
