Here's a simpler version that doesn't depend on the internals of the states
(which may change over time, albeit in a semi-controlled way):
"""If editor is split, unsplit it and show the vertical tools panel.
Otherwise, hide the vertical tools and split the editor left-right
Assumes default windowing policy (combined toolbox & editor windows).
Thanks to Jonathan March for this script."""
app = wingapi.gApplication
I've added this to our scripts/editor_extensions.py example file, with
Jonathan's permission, but figured I'd follow up here also.
