Hi all,

i wanted to create some sub categorys for several export wizards.
Therefore, i've defined a category with no parent and id xyz.
Afterwards, i've created a new category abc, that points to xyz as its
parent category.

My wizard points to xyz/abc/ in category attribute, but when i run the
eclipse, the wizard is allways displayed as a child of xyz instead of
xaz/abc.

Is subfolding (or subcategoring) in export wizard dialog prohibited?

Thanks Timothy

Hi Timothy,

It is a bit buggy indeed. However it works. The solution is that empty
categories will not be displayed and that the categories must be separated by
'/'. Empty categories can lead to strange effects. Here is a plugin.xml
snippet that works. Play with this and find out when it does strange things
then please file a bug.

Best regards,

Wim


<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.exportWizards">
<category
id="a"
name="a">
</category>
<category
id="b"
name="b"
parentCategory="a">
</category>
<category
id="c"
name="c"
parentCategory="a/b">
</category>
<wizard
category="a/b/c"
class="org.eclipse.ecf.provider.twitter.ui.ExportWizard1"
id="org.eclipse.ecf.provider.twitter.ui.wizard1"
