Hello,
I tried to add help to "Test" application while learning RCP Eclipse, but
without success.
I included

org.eclipse.equinox.http.jetty
org.eclipse.help.appserver
org.eclipse.help.base
org.eclipse.help.ui
org.eclipse.help.webapp
org.eclipse.ui.forms

into target platform.

Then I added following code.
//-------------------------------------------------
public class ApplicationActionBarAdvisor extends ActionBarAdvisor {
private IWorkbenchAction iHelpContentsAction;
....
....
protected void makeActions(IWorkbenchWindow window) {
iHelpContentsAction = ActionFactory.HELP_CONTENTS.create(window);
register(iHelpContentsAction);
}
....
....
protected void fillMenuBar(IMenuManager menuBar) {
helpMenu.add(iHelpContentsAction);
.....
//-------------------------------------------------

Menu "Help Contents" is showing correctly in menu bar but when I click on
it nothing happens.
I am runnig "Test" as application so there shouldn't be problem with
missing plugins.
I am sure this is dumb question but I've searched groups with realizing
that many problems can be caused by missing register(IAction) or exporting
product without help system. This is not my case I think.

Thank you for your tips.
M.

P.S. I know I can use commands instead of fillMenuBar but first I want to
see Help dialog :).

Take a look at

You may still be missing some plug-ins.

Thank you,
you were absolutely right about plugins. There were more than few missing
plugins in my target platform setting. I had badly separated IDE and RCP
platform. Help System is running now.
