Lazarus IDE extension for docking package windows automatically
« on: November 28, 2019, 09:03:49 pm »
Today I wrote an IDE extension I wanted to share in case anyone is interested.

laz-dock-package is an extension for Lazarus-IDE to dock the package editors together with the project inspector

With AnchorDocking it is possible to make the IDE a single window. However if you open a package you first have to dock it because by default it will be created as a floating window. When you close the IDE the next time you open it you will have to do this again and again and again... (You can see my motivation for writing this extension).  With this IDE extension every new package editor is automatically docked together with the project inspector as a new tab. I chose the project inspector because it has basically the same purpose but for projects.
