Description paulhuang 2005-03-16 06:06:53 UTC
There is another thing I suggest we can grab from Eclipse, to provide view
filters. With filters, developers can specify what he/she wants to view and what
he/she doesn't want. 

For example, you can specify not to show empty packages and not to show
refereced libraries, which will then help you to hide all the empty packages and
referenced libaries from the navigator. 

I list all the filters currently provided in Elipse 3.1 FYI.

.* files
Binary plug-in and feature projects
Closed projects
Empty packages
Emtpy parent packages
Import declarations
Inner class files
Java files
Local types
Non-Java elements
Non-Java projects
Non-public members
Non-shared projects
Package declarations
Referenced libraries
Static fields and methods

Generally accepted, although I'll have to see eclipse's impl to fully see what
this is about.
