Disable help "?" icon in a wizard [message #336747] Tue, 30 June 2009 19:29 Go to next message

Hi everyone,

I searched around and can't seem to find the solution to this issue.
Basically I have a wizard and it has the "?" help icon on the bottom left
of the wizard next to the back, next, and finish buttons. The issue is
that I would like to disable that and not display the icon since all of
the information needed is on the wizard page itself. I can't seem to get
it to be disabled.

In the wizard itself, I tried

// override this method, doesn't work
public boolean isHelpAvailable(){
return false;
}

and

this.setHelpAvailable(false); // set in the constructor of the Wizard

and that doesn't work either. Any ideas as to how to disable that icon?
Thanks,

Andy

Are you writing a plug-in that is installed into the Eclipse IDE, or
your own RCP product?
The reason I ask is because there is a method,
org.eclipse.jface.dialogs.TrayDialog.setDialogHelpAvailable( boolean),
that might be getting called. It instructs JFace dialogs (including
WizardDialog, I think) to always show the help button. I've usually seen
it called in the initialize() method of a WorkbenchAdvisorIntercept, so
if you've registered one of those you can check there.
If you're not sure, try setting a breakpoint in that method and see if
it is being called.

Hope this helps,
Eric
