Is there any built-in API in Eclipse to support Radar Views? [message #605143] Tue, 27 June 2006 02:46 Go to next message

Hi there,

I'm an undergraduate with a Singapore University majoring in computer
engineering. For my final year project I was to develop a collaborative
plugin for eclipse. This plugin is created in such a way that is based on a
server client architecture and a copy of the file is downloaded from the
server side. Each mouse movement/cursor is sent back to the server through
messages.

Now I would like to enquire if Eclipse has any built in support for radar
views meaning such that the Server can "see" where is the current
mouse/cursor is in Client A, Client B. ===> likened to a monitoring kind of
mode (think a security centre with multiple cameras looking at a particular
place).

My apologies if it sounds complicated. I hope someone will be kind enough to
hint me the right directions.

Thank You

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

I'm not sure I understand your intended application. Do you just
want the position of the mouse cursor from clients sent to a server when
they are using the Eclipse IDE, or do you want to see the desktop and
what is being typed, etc. even outside of Eclipse?

Hi Ken,

Sorry for the confusion caused and thank you for replying.

I was hoping to find out if there were any Eclipse API that allows me to
have multiple views.

And yes, I would like to send the position of the mouse cursor to the server
with the intention of imaging/superimpose multiple cursors from various
views( from various desktops) into 1 common view.

Adrian,

If by "view" you mean a ViewPart or a WorkbenchPart or something
Eclipse related, then no, there is no API for this sort of thing that
currently exists, as far as I know. If by "view" you mean computer
screen or window, I'd probably recommend using something like VNC in
read-only mode to achieve your goal, although that doesn't give you much
opportunity for Eclipse development...
