I am creating an eclipse plugin where different users have different roles. I am able to define what the user is able to see with no problem. My problem is when they are not allowed to see a perspective because of their roles, they simply have to open the "open perspectives" dialog, then click the "show all" check box at the bottom, and then they can attempt to open that dialog. It then states that a certain activity must be enabled in order to open that perspective and asks if you would like to enable that activity. After they click yes, then the perspective is opened.

That is my problem though, since I don't want that user to be able to open that perspective. So I was thinking that I would like to override that action that loads the org.eclipse.ui.internal.activities.ws.EnablementDialog or is there a way to disable it through an activityPatternBinding or something like that? Or does anyone have any ideas about how to turn that feature off? Well I really appreciate the help and I hope that this is the correct place to ask a question like this. Thank you.

Hi Dwain,
I am facing the same problem right now and I am not able to apply Lars Vogel's tutorial to solve the problem. What is the right activity pattern to hide the "Show all" checkbox in the Open Perspective dialog? Thanks.
David

Hello David, I am not certain which pattern is the correct one. I do know that this set of bindings worked in eclipse 3.6 but does not appear to work with the current version of eclipse.
