Eclipse 3.4.1, using the code snippet here:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/
FAQ_How_do_I_build_menus_and_toolbars_programmatically%3F

I created an empty view, started Eclipse and used Window | Show View and
no new or changed menus show up? Neither for the main Eclipse menu nor
any local menu for the view.

Is the code no longer applicable?

I placed the code from the site into a fresh new view inside
createPartControl() and the menus show nowhere:

IMenuManager mainMenu = getViewSite().getActionBars().getMenuManager();
MenuManager menu1 = new MenuManager("Menu &1", "1");
menu1.add(new Action("Action 1") {});
mainMenu.add(menu1);
MenuManager menu2 = new MenuManager("Menu &2", "2");
menu2.add(new Action("Action 2") {});
menu1.add(menu2);

Is there some extra code needed to make this sample work?

It turns out that you do get a menu in the view via a dinky drop down
arrow button.

Anyone know how to get a real menu ADDED to the actual Eclipse menu
dynamically?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank-you,
Dilton
