RE: [dsdp-dd-dev] Improving the platform debug views

The debug platform is planning to investigate the SWT.VIRTUAL tree and the 
use of columns in tree viewers during M5. The idea is that a model will be 
able to specify its own columns via its label adapter. We have not looked 
at pluggable cell editors, but we should do this too.

Did you create the bugzilla entry? I'm not seeing it against DSDP.
The flexible hierarchy brings us closer to reaching our goal of utilizing 
the platform views instead of bundling our own. However, some critical 
functionality is currently missing from the platform views. The higher 
priority items on my list include:
    - VariablesView/VariablesViewer should take advantage of the (newly 
added) SWT.VIRTUAL support in the Tree control.
    - Configurable multiple column support. Ability to set column 
visibility and populate columns from arbitrary properties (pass column as 
key to Label provider). Name, Value, Description, ... 
    - Editor Providers. Ability to associate edit controls on a per cell 
(label/column) basis for in place cell editing.
Darin, does DSDP still have sufficient time to contribute view 
enhancements for the 3.2 release? Are the above items already in progress?
