This is more of an end user question. We have created a plug-in that
contains a palette with custom controls on it. We have many developers
using our plug-in (using Eclipse 3.2.1). We find on some of the machines,
it is very difficult to turn off the auto hide feature of the palette.
The user must click on the arrow at the top of the palette many times
before the auto hide is turned off. This is very annoying for our users.
This only happens on some of the machines. On others, it behaves nicely.

How can we solve this problem with the palette and auto hide?

There seems to be a correlation between the difficulty with the palette
and the general speed of tooltips on Eclipse. The users that have
problems with auto hide in the palette also have a problem with tooltips
coming up too fast.

Thanks,
Steve

You can have the default setting be PINNED_OPEN. And if you want to disable
it completely, always return that as the palette state from your
FlyoutPreferences. That might have some bugs though, but you can try it.

As for the machines that are having the problem, I assume they're still
Windows machines? I think the time delay before the tooltips show up is
configurable on the OS.
