Description rdelaplante 2007-08-22 03:12:29 UTC
Right click your VWP editor tab, and select “Clone Document”. This creates a cloned tab.  Drag the second tab down
towards the bottom of the screen.  You will see red guide lines showing where it will be if you drop.  Drop near the
bottom of the screen.  Now select the JSP view in the bottom tab and you have a split screen.

As you make changes to the JSP code, the visual designer does not show these changes live.  You have to press the
refresh button in the visual designer.

Passing to insync, there are no events coming from the model. It seems it was architected that way (originally), when
the cloning was not working.

Historically the VW does not support automatic update of cloned views on JSP page. This has been the design. Marking it
as enhancement.
