Is it possible to change display names for tabs with views?

Hello all,

does anybody know, if there is a possibility to change how view names are displayed in tab-titles in Eclipse? My current format looks like this:

[System] Component_Name | View_Name

As there are usually more views in the component, which are changed at the same time and the name is truncated, all the tabs look the same (see the screenshot).

I would prefer if the View Names were displayed first and than the component name. The system name could be omitted completely, as I usually work in one development system. This way instead of having 5 tabs all displayed as "[WGT] ZLE_WINGS_WD_H" I would have: "CONFIRM | ZLE_WINGS", "INFO | ZLE_WINGS_WD_H" etc.

Is it possible to set it somewhere? Or is this a feature to request?

Thank you in advance,

have a nice day!

O.

Hi Ondrej,

Another shortcut useful in your case will be 'Ctrl+E'.

When you press this you will a list of editor with full name visible. That will be useful to read the complete name easily for now.

Hi Ondrej,

the only thing you can do currently is to define whether the system name is displayed in the tab or not. You can use the preferences to adjust that in your IDE:

The WD specific setting I will discuss with my colleagues how to handle that.

Kind Regards,

Thomas.

Hi Ondrej,

You can hide the system IDs.

Go to Windows->Preferences -> ABAP Development

There you have an option "Show System ID in Editor Tab". Set it as No.

The View name and Component name can't be adjusted as of now.

We will take it as feedback\feature request.

Thanks and Regards,
