e(fx)clipse 2.2.0 – Maximize an UI-Component

I think allowing to maximize a certain UI-Element in your e4 on JavaFX application has been the most demanded features missing for e4 on JavaFX. e(fx)clipse 2.2.0 adds support to maximize an UI-Element as shown in the following video:

All you need to do is:

  • Add org.eclipse.fx.ui.workbench.renderers.base.addons.MinMaxAddon to your Application.e4xmi addons list
  • (Optional) Register an OSGi-Service of type org.eclipse.fx.ui.workbench.renderers.base.services.MaximizationTransitionService if you want some nice transitions, we ship a default transition as see in the above video named org.eclipse.fx.ui.workbench.renderers.fx.services.ProgressiveMaximizationTransitionService

I think this one coolest features we added since a long time and what makes it even cooler this support was contributed by one of the frameworks adopters Sun Volland.
