Hi,

I have an RCP application which is composed out of several plugins. How can I control the order of the different plugin icons in the menu bar? (Example: first the icons of plugin 3 and second the icons of plugin 1.....)


Thanks

Alwin

Not sure if i understood your problem....

You can define different separators (invisible) and set the plugin icons before or after this separator. So you can define an order.

example for your Menu contribution which contains your icons

menu:my.icon.menu?before=my.separator

The order in one plugin is not the problem.
The problem is the order of icons of different plugins in one RCP application.

Right, and you control that by either placing known separators that other plugins can contribute to or by placing the contributions relative to one another (which means they have to know the appropriate IDs).

This works for org.eclipse.ui.menus. This won't work for actionSets, for example. That order is entirely determined by insertion order, which is determined by the plugin ID sort order.
