Description

17 years ago
Right now, plugin windows are created as normal Mozilla child windows.

There are cases where it is necessary for the platform specific code to know 
that the window is a plugin.

There are two possibilities:

1. Create a new window type, eWindowType_plugin. Add support where necessary.

2. Add a flag that the window is a plugin to widget init data.

Looking for suggestions.

An example of this

Here is an example that also knows if the plugin is Java.

We need this for OS/2 so that we can prevent some messages from going from the
Java plugin to the browser.

Modify widget front ends to handle new window types

For this to work, we need to modify all front end code to handle the new window
types.
