Hi. I realize this might be an old topic, but I have not been able to
decipher the postings. I would like to have a Folder defined using
IFolderLayout persist when all views in the folder have been closed.

I've tried this, but to no avail:
// create a folder to house the information views
IFolderLayout infoFolder = layout.createFolder("info", IPageLaout.RIGHT,
0.5f, layout.getEditorArea());
// initially create a view to populate the folder
infoFolder.addView(INFOVIEW.ID);
// get the layout for the folder
IViewLayout infoLayout = layout.getViewLayout("info");
// set it to non-closeable
infoLayout.setCloseable(false);

Unfortunately, when I close the view, the folder also gets hidden and the
other folders expand to fill up the space in the layout. Could someone
suggest a way to allow the folder to persist when views are closed?

Thanks.

Sorry. I realize doing more research that what I am trying to do is not
possible. Choosing an Editor rather than a View is what I need to
consider.
