Hello.

I want to embed a browser widget in my Eclipse RCP application. I also want to implement some kind of interaction between both. For example execute some Java code when text is selected in the browser widget and so on. Unfortunately there seems to be no helper methods or listeners in the API of the Browser widget that support that task.
Is there a nice way to accomplish that? It would be a real killer feature for RCP applications, escpecially these days were desktop applications and web applications merge together.

Regards,
Kai

The feature you are after is: BrowserFunction (I'm sure it is in 3.6 and
JavaDoc says it is also in 3.5)

Hi Tom.

That's great news. Interaction is pretty easy now.

Javascript -> RCP = BrowserFunction
RCP -> Javascript = Browser.evaluate

Thanks a lot for that hint.

Regards,
Kai
