Programmatically launch editor window side-by-side [message #209119] Sat, 11 February 2006 18:08 Go to next message

I think it has something to do with creating a new editor stack (but how?)

IEditorInput inputEditor = new FileEditorInput(javaFile);
String id =
MyPlugin.getDefault().getWorkbench().getEditorRegistry().get DefaultEditor(javaFileName).getId();

// First, get the active page, or make this the active page if there are no
active pages
IWorkbenchPage activePage =
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage();
activePage.openEditor(inputEditor,id); <~~ how do we control where the
editor opens?

I think no transparent API exists to lay the editors in a desired way. Some alternatives could be to simulate manual layout by executing those actions programmatically. So look for Eclipse internal actions (if open, thats cool) which will allow you to layout editors in a desired layout.
