Overview
Who has never wished, when developing an application, to be able to see the code and the GUI at the same time, without being restricted by the environment?
It is now possible from version 20.
In version 20, the environment editors can be torn from the main window.
A common use is the simultaneous edit of a GUI window and its code. The code editor will be undocked from the environment and displayed beside it, on a second screen for example.
The code windows are displayed on the screen on the right
The code windows are displayed on the screen on the right
How to proceed?

Detaching a window from the environment

To detach a window from the environment:
  1. Select the button corresponding to the element to detach. This button is found in the bar of opened documents in the editor.
  2. Move the button outside the environment.
  3. Release. The element appears in a new window, independent of the environment.
This new window can be:
  • placed on a new screen,
  • resized,
  • ...
If a code window is opened from the detached element, this window will be displayed by default in the same environment as the detached element.

Re-attaching a window to the environment

To re-attach an element to the environment:
  • Method 1:
    1. Select the button corresponding to the element to re-attach. This button is found in the document bar in the independent window.
    2. Select "Attach to the main window" from the popup menu.
      Note: If the independent window contains several elements, you have the ability to attach a single element to the main window.
  • Method 2:
    1. Select the independent window.
    2. Move the independent window toward the bar of opened document in the main window of the editor.
    3. When the editor changes color, release the mouse button: the independent window is automatically re-attached to the environment.
      Note: If the independent window contains several elements, all the elements are re-attached to the main window.
