Hi all,

I created a custom eclipse view by contributing to the extension point
"org.eclipse.ui.views". But I dont want the view to appear under
"Windows->Show View->Other". I have a custom perspective and want the view
to appear only when I open that perspective.

Any ideas?

If it's your perspective, you use view shortcuts to add the ID of the view to use in your perspective factory (IPageLayout)

Let me rephrase my question.

I dont want the View to be listed at all under Window->Show or
Window->Show View->Other.

Can I define a view without the view being listed there?

No, not really. That's just a list as returned by the view registry (which contains the info to open the view at all).

Activities can sometimes hide the view in the Other... dialog, but there's a checkbox then to "show all views".

Think that only applies to the perspective dialog, no?

Praveen, you can take a look at bug 249451.
