Default welcome page for RCP application. [message #474324] Tue, 09 September 2008 07:12 Go to next message

Hi,

We do not wish to customize the default intro in any way, and want the
default welcome screen to popup for an RCP application.

We have o.e.ui.intro and o.e.ui.intro.universal bundled as a dependency,
but apparently just doing that does not help.

Is there a known way to do this ? Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ketan

You have to bind your application to the "org.eclipse.ui.intro"
extension point. Specify the id of your application in the
"introProductBinding" and use "org.eclipse.ui.intro.universal" for
"introId".

In addition you may specify the "intoTitle", "introBrandingImage" and
"introBrandingImageText" properties in your product specification (in
"org.eclipse.core.runtime.products").

This is described in the online Eclipse help in "Platform Plug-in
Developer Guide > Programmer's Guide > User assistance support >
Welcome" and the sub chapters.
