Yes, in fact the latter assumption is correct. You have to create a
MenuManager for each Table control (or whatever control you need a
context menu for) as described in the Link. You also need to invoke
the call to registerContextMenu, but this time you need the three-
void registerContextMenu(String menuId, MenuManager menuManager,
For the first parameter you need to provide a unique ID for each
viewer. This i9d needs to be used within the locationURI as you
You don't need to invoke
because this would not only register one of the viewers as selection

Use HandlerUtil.getActiveEditor or HandlerUtil.getActivePart and
cast to your concrete Editor class - or even better: Let your editor
implement some specific interface that provides the functionality you
need and cast to the interface.

Ok it works! Without setting the selection provider on the entire site, |
But I found out that
Returns the selection of the ISelectionProvider (TableViewer) I associated with the popup menu.
But how can I properly re-use this command from a button inside my editor? Then the popup menu will not be active. I think I'll just solve this by making a "removeSelectedConcreteObject" method in my editor...
