Developers switching from e4 on SWT over to e4 on JavaFX have been missing the feature to reorder the tabs inside their window.
One of the main targets of 1.0.0 is to close the gap between the SWT and JavaFX implementation so I’ve been working on this feature lately and today I can report about initial progress.
As of now the implementation makes use of reflection to access TabPaneSkin stuff but we are working with upstream JavaFX to get in a proper API like we’ve done already before.
Things not yet implemented:
- Detatching via DnD
- Splitting of areas via DnD
This new support will be in the nightlies – if you find issues please attach them to Bug 434228 – [e4] Add support for DnD of Parts
