class pyface.workbench.i_workbench_window_layout.IWorkbenchWindowLayout(adaptee, default=<class 'traits.adaptation.adaptation_error.AdaptationError'>)[source]

Bases: traits.has_traits.Interface

The workbench window layout interface.

Window layouts are responsible for creating and managing the internal structure of a workbench window (it knows how to add and remove views and editors etc).

activate_editor(editor)[source]

Activate an editor.

Returns the editor (just for convenience).

activate_view(view)[source]

Activate a view.

Returns the view (just for convenience).

add_editor(editor, title)[source]

Add an editor.

Returns the editor (just for convenience).

add_view(view, position=None, relative_to=None, size=(- 1, - 1))[source]

Add a view.

Returns the view (just for convenience).

close_editor(editor)[source]

Close an editor.

Returns the editor (just for convenience).

close_view(view)[source]

Close a view.

FIXME v3: Currently views are never ‘closed’ in the same sense as an editor is closed. When we close an editor, we destroy its control. When we close a view, we merely hide its control. I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not. It came about after discussion with Dave P. and he mentioned that some views might find it hard to persist enough state that they can be re-created exactly as they were when they are shown again.

Returns the view (just for convenience).

FIXME v3: Should this be called ‘destroy’?
