Split Screen [message #179985] Tue, 14 November 2006 09:18 Go to next message

Just trying to use the IDE. I have a simple HTML document that I am
screwing around with. I was wondering, can the window I am viewing be
split? Also, the window tab shows "java" at the top.

What is the proper way to work with html, javascript files?

Thanks,

A) Yes, you can have a split view of one file. The key is to use the
menu Window > New Editor - that will open a second editor on the file.
Then you can drag it around by its tab or title-bar to place it beside
or underneath the other editor panel(s).

B) Have you installed the Web Tools Project (WTP), or just plain vanilla
Eclipse? The WTP has support for web development, such as editors for
HTML/JSP, etc. You should be able to use the Update Manager (Help >
Software Updates > Find and Install...) to install the WTP components.

Hope this helps,
Eric

Thanks for the split screen, I have that now working. Works good.

Also, I just installed the WTP packages. How do I use those if I have a
html page on my screen? Major issue I have had is the editor not
formatting well.

Thanks,

Select "Window > New Editor". This will open a second editor on the
current file. Changes in one editor will be reflected in the other. Not
exactly the same as a split view, but it works just as well.

When you install WTP, it should associate the appropriate editors with
the various file extensions. So .html files should automatically open in
the proper editor.
If it is still opening in a plain text editor or the Java editor, try
closing the file and then choosing Open with... from the right-click
menu on that file.

Hope this helps,
Eric
