How can I get an IFile for a file outside the workspace?
In other words - how can I open non-project file in editor programmatic way?
Assume I have a some file and want to do something like this -
IFile myIFile = getIFile(file);
openEditor(new EditorInput(myIFile), "MyEditorID"));
Yes, I read answer here
but it didn't satisfy me. Starting Eclipse 3.0 it is possible to open any file in editor regardless of is this file in the project or not (File->Open File...). Eclipse Platform can do it. Why I can't?
Seems that it must be common and very usefull feature.
Thanks in advance.
