Introducing Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge : Tasks : Working with OpenEdge perspectives : Modifying a perspective
Modifying a perspective
Note: The OpenEdge Release 10.2B demos have not been updated for OpenEdge Release 11.0. Since 10.2B, OpenEdge Architect has been renamed as Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge. In addition, OpenEdge Release 11.0 includes some feature enhancements and other changes. Despite the differences between 10.2B and 11.0, the demos are still a useful introduction to Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge.
You can add views to a perspective, and you can close currently open views, thereby removing them from the perspective. You can save a given configuration of views as a custom perspective.
To modify the current perspective:
1. Select Window > Show View from the main menu bar.
2. Select Other to display a full set of views, organized in categories shown as folders, from which you can choose. You can select any view. Progress Developer Studio views are in folders whose names begin with "Progress."
Note: The views in the Progress OpenEdge Support Views folder are not intended to be selected. OpenEdge automatically displays these views when they are required. If selected from the Show View list, they may appear empty and non-functional.
3. To remove a view from the current perspective, close it by clicking the X on the view's tab.
4. To save your current configuration of views as a perspective, choose Save Perspective As from the Window menu and enter a name. You can overwrite an existing perspective by entering its name ( a confirmation prompt appears), but it is not recommended. It is advisable to leave the standard Progress Developer Studio perspectives unchanged so that you retain the ability to return to a default state.
