Hi,

I've used an activity that is always disabled in my product to make sure
that none of the available Run options is visible to the user. Unfortunately
this leaves an empty "Run" menu in the menu bar and so far I haven't found a
a way of removing it using the activity.

Did somebody else ever run into this and/or knows a solution (that doesn't
involve removing the menucontribution programmatically)?

Andreas

Check out the "org.eclipse.ui.perspectiveExtensions" extension point's
"hiddenMenuItem" element. Specify a perspective id (or * for all) and a
command id to hide that command's associated menu item in that
perspective. Use Menu Spy, ALT+SHIFT+F2 to find the command id.

Well, the problem is that I can't seem to find any command that contributes
the entry "Run" in the menubar of Eclipse. The spy doesn't seem to work for
these menubar entries, only in submenus and using the menu-id I gathered
from org.eclipse.debug.ui/plugin.xml doesn't have any effect.
