Inspector Visibility? Determine whether a given Inspector is visible

Can not find any way to determine Inspector Visibility from the API docs.

Looking for something like the following for setting up different workspaces.

UI::Inspector_Visibility?(name) ⇒ Boolean

Anybody know of a way to achieve this through the api?

Not currently. Hence this feature request from 3 years ago …

It kind of devolved into a debate on coding style, so this hasn’t been implemented yet.


In addition the UI::show_inspector method documentation is incorrect. It always returns true even if the inspector is already open. So it cannot be used to determine the shown state of any inspectors.


On Windows platform there have been hacks using the Fiddle library making Win system calls. I have no idea how this would be done on Mac.

Thanks Dan, I need to remember to search the api tracker.
