Give input to a view [message #794403] Thu, 09 February 2012 08:41 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm trying to give an input to a view. I'm using views instead of editors because the way they are tied to a perspective.

I'm using the standard way to open a view:

page.showView("id1", "id2", IWorkbenchPage.VIEW_ACTIVATE);


But in this way I can't give an object to this view. With an editor you can give an editorinput.. I'm looking for something similar for views..

Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

There isn't. You'd have to implement something like setInput(...) in
your own view.

Thanks for your answer.

I found a way to set an input to the view. I opened (and activated) the view and retrieved the view by calling: page.getActivePart(). I then set the input and because I use databinding all works perfectly.

When someone has a better solution I'm glad to here it.
