Hallo,

I have to create an E4 UI with nested tabbed part containers, and I found there is a limitation in Eclipse E4 UI Model.

You can see the requested user interface in the attached image

The requested UI has:
- A perspective containing two areas
- one of the two areas is a tabbed container,
- the tabbed contained contains other tabbed containers, which are Part Stacks

In the the attached image, the problematic tabbed container is painted in green

I tried to implement the tabbed container using PartSashContainer or Area, but I see that it is not possible to have PartSashContainer with tabs.

Anyone has suggestions on how to implement the requested User Interface ?

Regards.

Hello,

I'm not totally sure, but if you use a composite Part instead of a PartSashContainer, doesn't that solve the issue ... ?

Greetings,

Sorry for the late Reply.

Yes, I could hardcode all the UI using composites, but so doing I am going to lose the flexibility provided by the App Model.

My Idea was to do this in a declarative way using the model.

Thanks for the response.
