I'm developing an application in Eclipse 4.2 RCP, and I've got several views and editors in several IFolderLayouts. Previous iterations of RCP applications run in E3.7 have tabbed elements in the folder layout, and allow them to be dragged between layouts or minimized and an icon is placed in the little bar on the side.

I can't find any specific code that explicitly enables this (anywhere), and I'm beginning to think the functionality has been removed in 4.2, despite the compatibility API. I think I might be searching for the wrong term, or simply misunderstand how to look for what I want to do, so could anyone provide any insight? I can give code examples if needed.

Are they stand-alone views? There might be a bug about that.

Are you using the org.eclipse.rcp feature, or a hand-rolled features? With the switch to the new E4-based workbench, a number of other bundles are required. I'd highly recommend you switch to requiring the org.eclipse.rcp feature for your app.

They are not.

I realize again reading my original post that I failed to mention what I was hoping to do. I want to be able to drag tabs in the IFolderLayout around so they can be reordered, or dragged out of the layout entirely, to become their own stanadalone window. This is essentially the default behavior in Eclipse (3.7 or 4.2), and I'd like to recreate it. I'm almost certain I'm missing a one-liner I've managed to overlook somewhere.

Thanks.

Oh, I think Drag and Drop is implemented in org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.addons.swt. You need to make sure you include that plugin.
