I'm trying to write a plugin to include the IE browser in a tool window via
an open source IECanvas.dll components.
This components exposes the IE browser as a java.awt.Canvas object.
It works fine in a popup window, but not a toolwindow. I suspect the
problem may be the mixing of heavyweight components in a lightweight
container, but it could be that I just don't know something about the tool
window API. I've trying defering the registration of the tool window, but
nothing seems to help. This would be a helpful way to preview HTML
Another option I guess would be to use the new Editor window api instead.
Anyone have any thoughts? I basically get a windows access exception when
the component is first exposed, so I suspect maybe something's not getting
the backend dll, but I don't know anything about windows components/dlls.
