logging for org.eclipse.ui.menus extension and for the platform's handling of menus added by this? [message #504989] Thu, 24 December 2009 01:49 Go to next message

I've used org.eclipse.ui.menus extension point to contribute my menu options to a custom RCP application.
Usually things work fine, but sometimes at runtime these menu contributions go away. When I debugged the main MenuManager, I found the contributions to be in place, but were set to be invisible.
I confirmed that the related commands were enabled i.e. keystrokes were doing the action, but menus weren't visible.

I tried to search for info on how to turn on the tracing for this extension point and came across following relevant ones:

org.eclipse.ui/debug/contributions=true
org.eclipse.ui/experimental/menus=true

But, despite adding these to .options file, I could never get to see it working..

Can someone help me how do I debug this and in case someone has more knowledge in this space?

Thanks,
Jay
