So im relativley new to this view/perspective development and have come across a problem. My views only open once and another instance cannot be opened again even when I load different data.
Ive looked everywhere and all i can find people saying is that I need a secondary id etc... but no explaination of where to go to do this or how to go about this.
I need instances of my views to be opend multiple times if possible all with different data. these views are opened and controlled through a tree view i have created.
These views are currently just an extension of the Java perspective in eclipse 4.5.2.
Any pointers in the right direction would be a great help!
You specify the secondary id for the view when you show it using
IWorkbenchPage page = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();
page.showView("view id", "secondary id", IWorkbenchPage.VIEW_ACTIVATE);
"secondary id" must be different for each instance of the view.
