e4 compat layer and standalone views. [message #1117517] Thu, 26 September 2013 14:29 Go to next message

Hi,

See the screenshot attached.

In 3.x I could drag "views" around a standalone view and place them,
left, above, below.

With the same code deployed with the e4 compat. layer workbench, I am
not allowed to drag a view to the left, above and below. I can only drag
it to the same placeholder holding the view.

Functionally this is different, is this intended? Should I move away
from standalone views with the e4 workbench compat. layer?

Here is the code for setting the 3.x standalone view.

layout.setEditorAreaVisible(false);
layout.addStandaloneView("com.netxforge.netxstudio.screens.selector.design",
false, IPageLayout.LEFT, 0.5f, IPageLayout.ID_EDITOR_AREA);

Thank you, Christophe

You should open a defect for this (it's not an enhancement because it used to work). The problem is just that the DND code currently doesn't recognize stand alone MParts as potential targets for a 'split' operation (the one that created a new sash, splitting the existing element with the one being dragged).

I've opened the following defect to track problems with stand-alone views, I'll add this use case to the list...
