How does the enhanced view in the wtp relate to the regular view with categories? Are the tabs just another way to represent categories or something more?
[Gunnar Wagenknecht] 
I'd like to reuse the categories but the view from the wtp seems to work with extension points (from what I've read in the proposal).
It looks like that side-tab presentation in the wtp enhanced properties view is a variant of CTabFolder, my favorite class :). One way to approach it is to enhance/replace CTabFolder first so it can handle tabs on the side, hover highlight, maybe even multiple tab rows/columns and sideways text while we're at it. Then separately to spec out the underlying model. Totally separating the properties and their presentation sounds like a good idea, allowing for more than one alternate presentation.

I'm planning an enhanced Properties view as contribution to It should be based on the new forms UI. I found an already working implementation in the intial IBM code contribution to the wtp.

Now I'm looking for anybody with specific interest in this view. I'd like to improve it and I'd like to see it integrated into the Eclipse Platform. Any input/discussions/interest?

Cu, Gunnar
