Views with no corresponding file

Views with no corresponding file

Postby ThePetest on Sat Mar 23, 2013 10:10 pm

Hi!
It seems that if I open the Console or the Find bar or any other area where you can input text, a new view is created. I have an EventListener class and I want to implement the on_activated(view) method but I want to ignore views that don't belong to any file. First I wanted to check if view.file_name() != None but then I wouldn't include the views of new unsaved files. Do you have an idea how to distinguish between views?
Thanks

There is a setting "is_widget". Perhaps that will give you what you want?

I can't find it in the API reference. Is this available in ST2? Because that's what I'm using. I'm sorry for not mentioning this earlier.

It's not in the API doc. The easiest way to test this is to create a simple plugin using "on_activated". Use the following for the plugin.

Code: Select all
def on_activated(self, view):
        print(view.settings().get("is_widget"))


Now open up the console and a quick panel. Click from the quick panel to the view. Note that activating the view results in None. While clicking on the quick panel input results in True.

Somehow this doesn't help me though. I know of the 'is_widget' setting but I still get many views with their `file_name()` being `None` even though I have no unsaved buffers. I only get these when starting though. It seems to be exactly 4 calls for every window and I can say that this is not one of my open views because all of these are called with their file_name being set correctly.

Using this plugin:
Code: Select all
import sublime, sublime_plugin

class TestListener(sublime_plugin.EventListener):
    def on_activated(self, view, call=0):
        print("Activated%d ::: %s, File: '%s', Widget: %s, Loading: %s, Scratch: %s, Dirty: %s"
              % (call, view, view.file_name(), view.settings().get('is_widget'),
                 view.is_loading(), view.is_scratch(), view.is_dirty()))
        if call < 1:
            sublime.set_timeout(lambda: self.on_activated(view, call + 1), 20)


I get the following output:
Code: Select all

Since we can agree that the Activated0 calls are pretty useless (why?):
All the Activated1 calls together cover all my open views + one scratch + one dirty view, even though there are still numerous (8) calls with "File: 'None', Widget: None, Loading: False, Scratch: False, Dirty: False".


So, this comes down to 2 issues with the API:
1. When I get a view I expect that view to be accessable at the time I get it passed and not try again after 20ms to be able to read it's values.
2. Even when all my actually existing views are passed there are still 8 (probably 4 per window) "shadow views" that I can't assign.

So, if I had to fix issue 1. by re-calling the function again with the same view object in order to wait for Sublime Text to fill it with values I'll automatically encounter issue 2.: there will always be void views. Because I obviously have to check for 1. dynamically with a variable time interval I'd have to set a maximum iteration counter to not run into 2. and an infinite loop.
I hope that this is understandable and that others can reproduce this.

Edit: Oh, I forgot: ST2 2220 Win7x64. I will test with ST3 tomorrow.

Edit2: Can't reproduce this on ST3 3031, I don't get any calls besides the one actially activated.

Edit3: I worked around this by just ignoring all calls of `on_activated` until the plugin is initialized ("plugin_loaded") and then iterating over all views in all windows. See: https://github.com/SublimeText/Inactive ... 1761688d72
