    $\begingroup$ I mean the windows like 3D view or graph editor. Maybe its also called area.type $\endgroup$ Feb 15 '14 at 14:08
  • $\begingroup$ It is refered to as Editor as well as Space type. I wouldn't call it Area type, 'cause an area is a generic type and does not store any Editor/Space related data (other than the type and references to the regions and spaces). An area.type is set to use a certain Editor or Space type for that area in Python. $\endgroup$
