Hiding/Showing the ECB windows

With ecb-toggle-ecb-windows, ecb-hide-ecb-windows and ecb-show-ecb-windows you can hide/show all the ECB windows without changing the activation state of ECB and also without deactivating the advices for delete-other-windows and/or delete-window. This is most useful if you use a layout like "top2" (see Tips and tricks) or if you want to have maximum space for editing and you don't need the browsing windows all the time.

The following sequence of hooks is evaluated during showing again the hidden ECB-windows:

  1. ecb-show-ecb-windows-before-hook
  2. ecb-redraw-layout-before-hook
  3. <Redrawing the layout to show the hidden ECB-windows>
  4. ecb-redraw-layout-after-hook
  5. ecb-show-ecb-windows-after-hook

The following sequence of hooks is evaluated during hiding the ECB-windows:
