Drag and Drop between 2 opened editors [message #41465] Thu, 22 January 2009 07:37 Go to next message

Hello,

My application writing needs are to enable drag & drop between 2 opened editors.

While there is the possibility to open both editors side by side, it's not a well known feature, and sometimes not desirable.


What I would like is enable the user to work on several open editors, and, from time to time, initiate a drag operation from editor A, hovering the mouse over the tab showing the label of editor B,
which will then be opened to allow the drop operation to be done on editor B.


I don't know :

- if it is feasible at all ?
- if yes, where to plug things/start with ?

IS THERE a correct way to do this in a plug-in, so that I don't violate some "good behaving rules" ?

Thanks in advance if you can answer to my questions,

Hi Laurent,

This request for enhancement is already opened in the Eclipse bugzilla,
see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=37595 . You may want
to 'ping' the Platform UI guys to know what is the current status of
this bug (it doesn't seem to be targeted for the 3.5 release yet...),
and CC yourself to the bug.

BTW, note that such a question should have been asked on the
eclipse.platform.rcp newsgroup, since it's related to how the editors
should work :)

Cheers,
Ben
