For my application I want to create a UI contribution like the perspective switcher. It has to be viewpart independent and shall be displayed in every perspective. First I thought I just have to add a contribution to the toolbar like shown here ( http://wiki.eclipse.org/Menu_Contributions/Widget_in_a_toolb ar) but with locationURI=toolbar:org.eclipse.ui.main.toolbar my application crashes with a long long stack trace. In ApplicationWorkbenchAdvisor I see that the PerspectiveSwitcher is hardcoded added. I thought (hoped) that there's a generic extension point to add other contributions like it.
My contribution will contain just some status flags valid for the whole application.

Many thanks for any help!!

To provide something like the perspective switcher, you would probably use commands (like a radio button would work best).

2 things come to mind:

1) make sure you turn off the perspective bar in your RCP app

2) make sure anything you add to toolbar:org.eclipse.ui.main.toolbar is a <toolbar/> element that contains whatever else you want to show up (like your control, a dynamic contribution, or some commands).
