Show two editors [message #41757] Fri, 23 January 2009 09:35 Go to next message

Hello everybody,

I want to show two editors in the editorarea with a horizontal split.
It should look like:
-----------------------------------------
| Editor 1 |
-----------------------------------------
| Editor 2 |
-----------------------------------------

So actually I want two editorareas.
It is possible to drag the second editor under the first by hand but I'm
searching for a programmatically way ;-)

Thanks,
Erik

Hi Erik,

You should ask this question in the *eclipse.platform.rcp* newsgroup.
I don't think there is an API to do this programmatically, however. See
http://www.eclipsezone.com/eclipse/forums/m91979025.html : the solution
seems to consist in faking drag & drop events...

Cheers,
Ben

See this (old) bug that requests API for positioning editors:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=167336

It seems to be dormant, but maybe if you add a comment it will resurrect
interest. I've seen many questions about it in the past, so other people
definitely want it.

Hope this helps,
Eric
