RCP: Passing data to workbench/ Saving workbench data
posted 10 years ago
Passing data to new workbench ------------------------------ I'm developing an RCP application using different workbench windows using
With this call, I get a new workbench window with default content (set in my WorkbenchWindowAdvisor.preWindowOpen()) But i want to customize the content of this new workbench!!!
How can I send any data to the new workbench??? Is there a construct in the RCP framework??
Saving workbench data --------------------- Closing the application and open again is working fine for the number of windows and the window positions. But if I had Data A in the first workbench window and Data B in the second workbench window, after restart this data is lost (of course!).
How can I save/restore workbench specific data?
Both problems are solved with eclipse IDE (if your open a new perspective outside of the current perspective and close the application, all the settings are restored when reopened).
