Is multi-view editor windowing available?
« on: August 10, 2012, 09:43:24 pm »
I was referred to this software by a coworker and I'm used to having multiple edit windows in CodeWright and SlickEdit as opposed to the tabbed files.  The forum indicates a multi-view option may have been added, but I'm not able to find it.  Was it incorporated into the editor?
Thanks

Yes. At best, you should use a nightly for this.

There are two modes: split view and "docked":
1.) Split view means to split a file either horizontally or vertically, i.e. via the context menu of the editor. This shows the same file just splitted (but synchronised).
2.) The "docked" mode is if you undock an editor window clicking on the editors tab and by dragging it away (tear-off). Then, if you come to any border, you can dock- it in again. Thus, you can have as many different editors side-by-side, or under each-other or ion any layout you like. Just as you dock e.g. the manager window, too.

The window is split into tiles for the separate files so the size of any window also affects the size of the other window tiles.  Undocking implies that they can be cascaded too.  Is that possible?

Currently this is not possible with the wxAuiNotebooks.

If I remeber correctly, there are patches somewhere in the deep of the wx-dev mailinglist to get this working, but it seems notto be a simple task.
It might also be, that they try to move a tab from one notebook-window to another and dock it there.

Whatsoever:
really undocking (free-floating) is not possible.

IIRC, dmoore once provided a patch "tear-off" something...
