Eclipse guru,

Eclipse IDE has tabs which cut off text unlike the windows system tabs. I
want to control eclipse cut-off behavior. Does someone know in which
source code eclipse control the text cut-off? E.g. When a file is opened,
how ecplise openes a new tab panel and control the cut-off? When the
editor is resize, which event handler catches this event and
increase/reduce tabs and controles the cut-off?

Questions about the eclipse platform use and design will get answered more
quickly if you ask in the eclipse.platform newsgroup:

news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.platform

You can change the minimum number of characters shown in a tab by adding the
following line:

org.eclipse.ui/EDITOR_MINIMUM_CHARACTERS=80

(where 80 is the number value the minimum number of characters including
....) to the file
eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.platform_3.1.0\plugin_customizat ion.ini

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for. Hope it helps.

I may have to make clear this question. Say, I open 10 java files in the

drop-down list. The filenames of those 4 files (temp1.java, temp2.java,
temp3.java, temp4.java) are fully shown in the titles of the tabs. When I
shrink the edtor size. Ecplise may still show 4 files in the 4-tab panel
and put 6 files in the show drop-down list. However, it may cut off some
characters and show the filenames as (temp1.j..., temp2.j..., temp3.j...,
temp4.j...)in tha tab title.

My question is that I want to customize the code and control the tabs
alway show full filename (and put the file in the show drop-down list if
necessary) instead of cut off some characters.

May someone tells me where Eclipse control this cutoff ?

Thanks a lot
