4.1.3 ECB Directories-window

The ECB directories interactor is for browsing directories. The direct children of the invisible root-node are called source-path and can be defined with the option ecb-source-path. Each source-path is the starting-node of the complete directory-structure below this path and can be browsed with the directories-interactor.

When a sources ECB-window is contained in the current layout then per default only directories and subdirectories are displayed in the directories tree-buffer (the source-files are displayed in the sources tree-buffer - see ECB Sources-window) but this can be changed with the option ecb-show-sources-in-directories-buffer.

4.1.3.1 Usage of the directories ECB-window

When source-files-nodes are displayed in the directories-buffer (see ecb-show-sources-in-directories-buffer) then for these nodes all descriptions of section ECB Sources-window are valid.

4.1.3.2 Activating/Displaying the directories ECB-window

Either use one of the predefined layouts which contain the directories ECB-window (see Changing the ECB-layout) (e.g. via C-c . l c) or create a new ecb-layout via the command ecb-create-new-layout and add a buffer of type “directories” into this new layout (see Creating a new ECB-layout).

4.1.3.3 Customizing the directories ECB-window

See ecb-directories for a list of all options currently available for customizing this ECB-windows to your needs.
