Hello All,

I created 2 views and in the view1 there is a button b1 and upon button click view1 gets hidden and view2 opens but it shows the close option to the user. I want this close option to be disabled

below is my code snippet
IWorkbenchPage activePage = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();

IViewReference viewToClose = activePage.findViewReference(viewIdToClose);
try {
} catch (PartInitException e) {

how can i disable the close option in view2

Thanks in advance

It depends on how you add the view to the perspective.

If you add the view programmatically in the perspective factory then you have to specify the view as being either closeable or not:

IFolderLayout topLeft = layout.createFolder("distributed.grep.client.topLeft", IPageLayout.LEFT, 0.25f, editor);

If you add the view to the perspective using extensions in the plugin.xml then you specify the closeable attribute.

If the perspective is set to being fixed, then by default the view will be closeable.
