What is "PartRenderingEngine's limbo"? [message #1858814] Mon, 24 April 2023 11:52 Go to next message

can someone explain to me what the "PartRenderingEngine's limbo" shell does?

In my concrete problem, I am analyzing an RCPTT issue in which RCPTT tries to find the correct Shell for a given ViewReference.

The code in RCPTT that locates this shell effectively boils down to:

var control = ((org.eclipse.ui.internal.WorkbenchPartReference)reference).getPane().getControl();
var shell = control.getShell();

So, my concrete question is: when/how can the widget/control of the WorkbenchPartReference end up in PartRenderingEngine's limbo?

(The strange thing is that this only happens sometimes, and the affected view part (Eclipse's own Project Explorer in our case), is/was actually visible on screen when this happens, so the view is not hidden or otherwise invisible...)

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment...

I'm not sure so many experts exist who can answer this question. Maybe such experts are more likely to see the question if you ask it here:
