guys, how do I overcome the following difficulty. I cannot programmaticaly find a view.
I do this
IViewPart view_part = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().findView(ProjectExplorerView.ID_VIEW);
where ProjectExplorerView is my ViewPart.
So, when ProjectExplorerView is shown view_part != null otherwise it is null.So, I hide it, the result is null.
What is the problem?

That finds a view on the current page, and if it's not showing, returns null. What were you expecting it to be?

thanks a lot for your reply.
I was expecting it to return not null anyway, so is there any way to do it?

What is 'it'? What are you trying to do? Show a view? You've shown code that if a view is visible, obtains its reference so that you can hide it. I don't understand from your question what else you are trying to achieve.

anyway, there is something sensible stored in that view, I just made some methods static and that's all. :-|I wonder if there is a better solution.
