[e4-dev] CSS + Modelled UI: Need notion of active part

Eric suggested I forward this thread to the list.  I think it's an interesting problem because it's about meta information expressed at the level of the workbench (active part), manifest as styling via CSS (as changes in tab colors), and how we should communicate that.

Those interested should comment in the bug so we can keep the thread together.

[Bug 263185] [CSS] Need notion of active part  
Product/Component: E4 / UI

This makes perfect sense to me. We most certainly don't want the CSS to be
against the 'focus' control but, as you say, the 'active part' (as defined by
some higher level entity (aka the workbench)...

I'm all for having the Model/CSS boundary managed by a separate piece of code
(bundle?), specific to this task. We should have enough information being
forwarded by the model to accomplish this fairly cleanly. This will allow the
us to freely 'play' with concepts in this area without affecting the other
(non-CSS aware) parts of the code.

We should perhaps take some time to discuss this on 'eclipse-e4'...
