Hi

Look for the FlyoutPaletteComposite#createFlyoutPreferences() call in
GraphicalEditorWithFlyoutPalette#getPalettePreferences() and override. Not
sure we have any examples, but the code seems ok to follow.

Cheers...
Anthony

Hi Anthony,
first of all, thanks a lot for your support; I follow your suggestion
without solving my problem. In detail the scenario is the following:
1) the user opens the editor
2) the editor displays with an expandend palette
3) after some interactions, the user clicks on a button and the palette
automatically collapses
My problem is to implement point 3). Any further suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
Lillo

I've received no response to my previous question; does it mean that there
is no answer? How do I collapse programmatically the palette? If for
example I switch from a perspective to another and I want to
authomatically collapse an expandend palette, I cannot do that?It's very
strange!!! Could you help me please? It is very urgent.

Thank you so much in advance for your fast response.

Hi Lillo

As I already said,

Look for the FlyoutPaletteComposite#createFlyoutPreferences() call in
GraphicalEditorWithFlyoutPalette#getPalettePreferences() and override. You
are going to have to override with something to set a preference and then
refresh your editor.

There is no API for this because the palette is a user interface and it is
up to the end user to dock and undock the palette.

Just because you switch perspectives, why you do not want to force the
palette to dock for the user? What if the user opens the palette view?

Cheers...
Anthony
