I'm using the hexapixel ribbon and a custom renderer to transfer the main menu items into the "bigButton" menu.
The problem is that this menu is also set to the current shell on setup() of WorkbenchWindow -> shell.setMenuBar(menu);

is there a way to prevent this?

thanks

more problems:
PartRenderingEngine: fixZOrder is changing my composite order... it moves the main perspective area above the ribbon toolbar

any idea?

thanks

No, as that is hardcoded in directly. I can change the code to only set it if the MMenu's widget actually is an SWT Menu if that would help you (assuming you are working with code from HEAD).

though this might fix things for compat. I think the real solution in an
e4 world is to write your own Window,Menu,Toolbar-Rendering code.

actually i'm using your https://svn.tomsondev.com/svn/ufacekit/desktop/org.ufacekit. ui.e4.renderer/src/org/ufacekit/ui/e4/renderer/ source but having these problems - or do you mean starting from scratch?

thanks

Well interesting that this code still works it is quite old but yes
that's the way to go so do i get it right the compat layer is doing bad
things to you?

I do not think it is the compat layer since the shell.setMenuBar(..) and the fixZOrder (PartRenderingEngine) is not part of the compat layer (?)

i do not know why a fixZOrder (....workbench.swt 0.9.1) is necessary (rearranging the composite order) - perhaps it isn't a good idea the ribbon-stuff is adding a composite directly to the shell and not via some kind of renderer callback;

i'm not an swt-renderer-package expert (not yet Wink) so i can't tell...

I think only Eric can tell us. So please file a bug report (if not yet
done - feel free to cc me on it) and so we can discuss there with the
experts :-)

ok thanks.
I'm trying with the head-e4 bundles now to check any changes in there before filing a bug...
