Orphaned Terminal window [message #15544] Tue, 30 October 2007 09:58 Go to next message

Originally posted by: paul.mcconkey.net

Hi,

I had a detached Terminal view dragged onto my secondary monitor for some
time. I then reattached it to the debug perspective. Since then, a working,
but blank, detached window keeps appearing every time I switch to the debug
perspective. This window has no title, controls or content apart from an X
close icon and it is happy to be dragged or closed.

Any idea how I can get rid of it short of a complete reinstall of Eclipse?

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi Paul,

I'd recommend you first try Window > Reset Perspective.

If that does not help: if I'm not mistaken, the file which holds
information about the position of windows, views and dialogs is
stored in your workspace:

{ws}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui/dialog_settings.xml

deleting that file should restore the default settings for all
views in all perspectives.

In case you can reproduce your issue, please file a bug.

Thanks!
Martin

Sorry, wrong file:

{ws}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/workbench.x ml

seems to be the file holding view state and location.

Cheers,
Martin

Thanks, Martin.

I found the window coordinates of the dialog using spy and a search in the
workbench.xml led me to this section in the debug perspective:

<detachedWindow height="425" width="585" x="2098" y="315">
<presentation
id=" org.eclipse.ui.internal.presentations.r33.WorkbenchPresentat ionFactory_33 ">
</presentation>
</detachedWindow>

I have not been able to reproduce this - but maybe there is some way for the
Terminal view's page content tags to be removed. If it reoccurs I will try
to figure out how to reproduce it.

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi Paul,

if this is a bug it may not be related to the Terminal at all.
Did you search Eclipse (Platform) bugzilla for things like
"detached" "empty" ?

Cheers,

That seems likely, and after an hour of trying I can't reproduce it -
although I did find a detached window drawing issue:

Good point, but no joy.

Cheers,
