Hi all,
I have created a new Eclipse plug-in and i want to utilize the power of the DSE (Data Source Explorer) view in my project.
Now I have created a new perspective and added the " org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.DataSourceExplorerNavigat or " view to this.
I want to know how I can customize this view (changing the context menus, visualize only some elements of a connections such as tables), I didn't find any clear documentation for doing this.
Thanks in advice. Smile

Marco

Hi Marco...

The DSE is based on the Eclipse Navigator Framework, so you should be
able to search for example of how to add to that. Here's a link to the
online docs for Galileo:
http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse .platform.doc.isv/guide/cnf.htm

When you say "Change the context menus" - you have the ability to add
new menus, override menu actions, etc. Take a look at the plugin.xml for
org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.sqm.server.ui for some examples there.

When you say "visualize only some elements of a connection such as a
table", it sounds like you want to filter out some of the other SQL
objects that appear in the tree? If that's the case, you can look at the
section "Defining Filters" in this document:
http://scribbledideas.blogspot.com/2006/05/building-common-n avigator-based-viewer.html

Hope that helps some!

Yes, thanks a lot Brian!
But I have a doubt, is not necessary to have an extension point to modify the DSE? I don't see a "org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.ui.dse" in the possible extension point list... probably I'm missing something?

All you need to know is the viewer ID you're extending. Take a look at
the Digital Paper Napkin examples and hopefully that will help. There
are no DSE-specific extension points.

Hi all,
I'm new with plugin development so I need very much your help.

This is my problem:
Like Marco I need hide many items by the popup menu. I read suggestions to make this but I'm not able to do this correctly.

My principal doubt is that I have 4 views: 3 are created explicittally by the extensions while 1 uses directly the org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.DataSourceExplorerNavigat or in my factory class.

Now, I know the view id but I don't know how add filters to hide all popup voices (the ONLY item that I want use is Properties ) ... I read how add filters but I don't understand how... for my case. I need to create a particular extension to make this? If yes ... which?

Someone can help me? I need it very very much!!

Thanks in advance,

Antonella

Hi Antonella,

Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you...

Can you provide some additional info on WHAT menus you're looking to remove?

There's an example on StackOverflow that describes how they removed a
few menus:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1289513/removing-popupmen us-from-cnf-common-navigator-framework-in-eclipse

In the case of the DSE, the view ID is
" org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.DataSourceExplorerNavigat or "

Yes brian is right the DTP implements the CNF of eclipse.
All you have to do is to create a normal pop up menu extension and set the objectClass property to be org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.IConnectionProfile

and then add a command to this menu and write your handler.

this will give you the top most object in the DSE which is the connection profile and you can use it to traverse the all tree.

believe him.

My question is how did you get the DSE to appear in your RCP i want to do that but i do not know how.
