add to StrcuturedView?

I am wondering if it's possible to at all effect the StructureTree. By that I mean extend the TreeCellRenderer (I assume exists) that renders the nodes. I would like to be able to add a button (I have a corresponding property I can access) to the enclosing panel and effect how the tree is sorted.


Basically, I want to extend the StructureView in perfectly ordinary ways.. hook into the show/hide/sort logic and represent properties through rendering.


So also with the project view (inter-package, inter-class view) . I would like to be able to display properties and have buttons associated with those properties.

Is this possible? I know for custom languages you can write your own (damn) StructureTree from scratch, but that would really be an anti-pattern when I strictly want to add functionality.



thanks!!
