Hi,
I wish to call a view as follows(basically to set view content and open
it in performFinish of wizard) :

IWorkbenchWindow wdc =
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow();
IWorkbenchPage page = wdc.getActivePage();

MyView myview = new MyView(viewContent);
myview.createPartControl(parent);
IViewPart part =(IViewPart) myview.getViewSite() ;
page.activate(part) ;

However how do I set the 'parent' in myview.createPartControl(parent)?

Regards,
mohansl

Hi,
I could do that, however I wish to set the view content from the wizard
via the view constructor and then show the view, So how do I go about
doing it?

The short answer is you can't. Views don't work that way.

Your best bet is to have your view start up with a blank screen or
message (like the Content Outline view) and respond to another message
that causes it to update it's contents. ex:

IViewPart part = page.showView("id");
// the view now updates its composites
part.setViewContents(viewContent);
page.activate(part); // probably not necessary


The other (less good :-) option would be to have your performFinish()
put something in a singleton somewhere, and have your view always check
for information in it's IViewPart#init(*) method when it starts up.

Later,
PW

You should ask this question in the eclipse.platform newsgroup:
