10.4 Simulating speedbar without an extra frame

You can simulate a speedbar-like layout within ONE frame by doing the following:

  1. Customize ecb-layout-name to layout name “left9”, “left12”, “left13” or “left14” dependent to what you like.
  2. Optional: Ensure that ecb-compile-window-height is nil.
  3. Optional: Adjust the ecb-windows-width.
  4. Optional: Customize ecb-toggle-layout-sequence and toggle very fast between several layouts by ecb-toggle-layout. See the doc-strings!
  5. Optional: Customize ecb-show-sources-in-directories-buffer to not nil if the chosen layout (see 1. and 4.) contains a directories-tree-buffer.
  6. Save your changes.

But not only simulating speedbar is possible but also full integrating it into the ECB and the ECB-frame, See Integrating speedbar.
