Hi all,

I've successfully used URL starting by http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/runAction?.. to have hyperlinks in my welcome page that open wizards or invoke other actions.
I would like to use it in another place than my Intro page. I was disppointed to discover that such URLs does not resolve to actions in the internal browser, and I don't know how to get started to re-use the WelcomeEditor...

Can someone give me a hint on how to have something like http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/runAction?.. available in an internal browser, or to reuse the WelcomeEditor?

Thanks in advance

The best solution I found after investigation is to reuse the IntroPart, and to show a different page than the intro. The introContent.xml is added one page which refers to a web page, and I have to maintain the current page when opening the intro, to show either the real intro, or my external page. Then, when this external page is opened in an intro part, it resolves URL such as http://org.eclipse.ui.intro/runAction?..

I am not very satisfied of this solution, since it looks like a misusage of IntroPart and requires usage of internal classes, but I did not find any other way to achieve my goal.
Then, if anyone has a suggestion, it is still welcome!

Regards,
