Hello.

I have this problem.
I'd like to add menu to menu bar. I can't add it using XML plugin
because it's not static menu. There is ActionBarContributor class that
is specific for Editor. But I need this menu to be present there when
editor is closed as well when it's open (even when only resource, or
package view is open). Is there a way to hook in somehow to do that??


Cheers, Greg

maybe, nobody really understands what you want to achieve (at last i
don't)?
maybe, make your menu a perspectiveExtension? so it's visible if only your
perspective is opne and active?
or make your menubar available and add your Contribution to it?
should be possible to access the ActionBarAdvisor of your app and thus the
meunubar by methods provided by the rcp-framework ...

I think the idea is to create a top-level menu with content that is
dynamic (like the buttons that have a drop-down menu which is generated
when the button arrow is pressed, not like the static actions defined in
plugin.xml) and which is associated with neither an editor nor a view.
There are somewhat suspect ways of adding menus, e.g. getting the active
Shell and directly modifying the menu bar, or get the active
WorkbenchWindow and obtain the MenuManager, but these would have trouble
coping with layout changes. Is there a better mechanism?
