Tiled and Floating Windows?
« on: November 11, 2008, 07:57:15 pm »
I've searched quite a bit and cannot find any info on this topic. I'd really like to be able to tile my windows in the codeblocks editor. I have a large widescreen monitor that has a lot of screen realestate. I'd like to be able to view the header and source file, for example, for a class side by side. As it is now, I have to either furiously switch tabs, or open the header file with a different editor such as gedit. I've noticed that I can split a single file, which then gives me exactly the view I'd like to have, but for two different files. Anyone know if there's a way to do this that I'm missing?

This is currently not possible. The only thing implemented is a split view that allows splitting *one* file horizontally or vertically (right-click in the editor and inspect the menu).

However, we are already testing a patch that will implement the feature you requested. It will take some more time but will be most likely one of the very next major new features.

Great, looking forward to it. Already using code::blocks in Windows and Linux (friends are using it with Macs) and love it. Thanks for the great work!

It is good to finally see people who get what's needed for FOSS development tools who can actually do something about it :D

I'm loving this project.

Any news on the patch? Is there a place we can go to see the status? Thanks!  :)

Watch the branch created. There is no news ATM until we finish things we are currently working on (in another branch). After that this will be addressed.
