How to Disable Breadcrumbs [message #320278] Fri, 14 September 2007 14:19 Go to next message

My development team just moved to Eclipse 3.3 for an RCP application
that we are developing. What has happened to my Eclipse help project is
that
Eclipse has somehow dynamically injected code in my help that makes
breadcrumbs appear at the top of each help topic. I am told that
breadcrumbs is now a standard feature with Eclipse 3.3. Is there a way to
disable the breadcrumbs feature? If so, what/where do I do it?

Thanks in advance!

Ron,

I'm going to answer you question here since it belongs in
Eclipse/Platform/User Assistance (ie. eclipse.platform news group).

Sorry to hear you don't like the breadcrumb feature. The Eclipse plugin
org.eclipse.help.webapp is responsible for dynamically injecting additional
html. The simple answer is that you have no control over the existing
breadcrumb feature.

I would file a bug/feature report. Help->Report Bug, Select Eclipse.org,
click next, select Platform, click Finish. Fill in the bug form and set
Component to User Assistance.

Bugs can be found at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs.

By the way, the class that you are interested in is called
org.eclipse.help.internal.webapp.servlet.BreadcrumbsFilter. It is one of
five servlet filters being used by the Eclipse user assistance plugins (ie
help).

If you absolutely must remove breadcrumbs then check out the
org.eclipse.help.webapp source code and tweak the code.

David,

luckly similar question was asked on eclipse.platform.ua newsgroup just
a day or two ago:
http://www.eclipse.org/newsportal/article.php?id=97&grou p=eclipse.platform.ua#97

Chris Goldthrope said there that:

We don't have a preference for this but here is one way to do it.

Find the file org.eclipse.help.webapp\advanced\breadcrumbs.css and
replace its contents with.

..help_breadcrumbs {
display: none;
}

Jacek,

It is always ugly to maintain your own org.eclipse*.jar file but tweaking
the *.css file is a much better solution than changing a few lines of java
code.

Hello,

I post the following post because I displayed in my Eclise the "Breadcrumb" toolbar. This is good feature but I wanted to remove the toolbar because it disturbed me and it was very uncomfortable to me to see it all the time.
I faced many difficulties to remove it, that's why I think the following post will help you.

Here is the way of removing it from your Eclipse view (I found the solution very difficult in other forum):

"Alt+Shift+B. Show in breadcrumb.
This is something that might work great for some people. For me, it annoys the hell out of me. It puts a breadcrumb in your text area and it does not give you an easy way to get rid of it. So here is how you get rid of Show in breadcrumb.

Go to Window then customize perspective (Window->Customize Perspective). In there, go to the Commands tab. For me, I used the Java Editor Presentation (find it and click on it). On the Toolbars details, you should see Toggle Breadcrumb with an icon of a C and an arrow. Click on that then click okay (OK). On your toolbar (if it wasnt already there), you should now see that icon. Click that to turn it off."
