How to Add menu contribution when an specific editor is active - using org.eclipse.ui.menus [message #337029] Wed, 22 July 2009 09:46 Go to next message

Hi all,

I need to add a sub menu into the existing File menu in the Main menu when
when at least one instance of my editor is open. I have
found that should be possible to do programmaticly using the
contributorClass in the org.eclipse.ui.edtors extension point schema.
But I have also found that org.eclipse.ui.menus can do sort of this, but
I',m not sure how to set this up.

The scenario is as follows: When an instance of a specic editor is active
there should be an additional sub menu available in
the File Menu meny. This sub menu should have a couple of menu entries.

Can anyone share how to do this?

You use a visibleWhen on your menu contribution commands from org.ecilpse.ui.menus.

<with variable="activeEditorId"><equals value="your.editor.id"/></with>
