Hi,
In my application I want to have a search box in the main toolbar. I also
need a combo box added for user to specify the type of search. Is there a
way to do so ?
If yes how do I do it using pluggin. And how can I access the value returned
by the above input field. Please do let me know if anybody have any idea on
this.

Thanks in Advance!
Neha.

Look at:

Especially: menuContribution's control contribution.

My approach is a little bit low-level, but it gives you full control
over window layout in your RCP application. See the screencast:

http://blog.jcake.com/2010/01/17/creating-custom-eclipse-rcp -window-layout/

An easier approach is to place you widgets using org.eclipse.ui.menus
extension point but you will have to stick to standard layout.
