Multiple perspectives and views
MultiplePerspectives.png

The second example creates two perspectives. The first perspective has a visible editor area and uses a folder to bring the first view to the left side. The second perspective sets the editor area to invisible. The two views are filled with an empty QListWidget. The perspective bar is enabled.

The visibility of the editor area is set in the corresponding perspective cpp file by:

// set editor area to visible
layout->SetEditorAreaVisible(true);

The visibility of the perspective bar is set in the applications MultiplePerspectives.cpp:

// Enable or disable the perspective bar
configurer->SetShowPerspectiveBar(true);

Here we can also set/change some other general preferences (e.g. the initial size):

// Set an individual initial size
configurer->SetInitialSize(QPoint(600, 400));

The perspective bar:

The icons of the perspectives are definded by the extension declaration in the plugin.xml of the example and lie in the resources directory of the plug-in:
