Description David Simonek 2007-11-30 10:50:48 UTC
- ability to DnD whole tab groups/windows/modes
- drag is started by dragging free area on tab group title
- group can be dropped as whole tab group or into existing tab group
- when tab group is dragged to "sliding" bar, all tabs are made sliding
- ability to DnD whole "sliding" bar at once

Dependencies, risks:
- new view tab layout must be implemented first, editor tab layout modified
- drag ghost image of groups must be implemented first
- winsys DnD infrastructure changes, transferable to hold tab group instead of one component 

Estimation: 4 man weeks
Comment 1 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2007-12-11 10:25:06 UTC
More optimistic estimate is 1-2 weeks.
Comment 2 Lukas Hasik 2008-04-10 21:21:56 UTC

> - drag is started by dragging free area on tab group title
Hm, I don't see this free area on tab group title ???

- make separators between the tab groups capable for dragging, see Issue 147182.
  Suggestion: if moving a separator exceeds a reasonable limit (e.g. border of NetBeans main frame),
  action should switch to dragging, and separator should jump back to it's recent position.
- choose free white background of respective open tab window.
  Problem in text areas (e.g. editor, output): also free space is occupied for marking text.
  In this case, free space in windows toolbar could be used.

Just to draw attention to this issue.
It was planned for 6.5.
