Custom Folder Type [message #496198] Mon, 09 November 2009 05:44 Go to next message

I'm trying to create a custom folder type that is associated with my custom project. As an analogy, in a Java project, you can right-click, select New and choose Source Folder. I want this feature, but with my own project and folder type.

I imagine that adding the context menu won't be too difficult, but I'm unsure where to begin with defining the folder type, and my googling turns up nothing (though I imagine it's because I don't know exactly what I'm looking for).

Any help is much appreciated, especially if there's a Help page on this.

Thanks,
James

You can't make your own folder type as it is not allowed to subclass
IFolder. A source folder is not a custom folder type but a Java element
in the Java model that's backed by an IFolder.
