Hi all,

I have my custom editor which extends TextEditor and I also have a custom SourceViewerConfiguration which extends TextSourceViewerConfiguration.

I have my own preference page. I would like to add fields with the same behavior of those found here General -> Editors -> Text Editors
(Displayed Tab Width, Insert spaces for tabs).

I have added the fields in my preference page and also done the following:
Override getTabWidth (in my SourceViewerConfiguration) method to return the tab width in my preference page.

I know that there exists those two functions in the class AbstractTextEditor:

  1. isTabsToSpacesConversionEnabled
  2. installTabsToSpacesConverter

I don't know what if I need to override these or not. Do I?

Problem is that nothing works. The changes are 100% ineffective although I can step into getTabWidth that I have have overridden. What am I missing?

Also, I don't know if performOK will need something special to update the currently opened editors or not (any listeners?).
