Reading Command Line Parameters in RCP App [message #637240] Thu, 04 November 2010 16:58 Go to next message

I tried searching the forum, but most of the command line topics were on starting eclipse.

I have an RCP app that works well. One of my views needs to access the command line parameters given to the RCP application when it is started.

In this particular case, I need to turn some logging on or off based on a command line parameter.

How can a view in my RCP app access the command line parameters that are provided when the app is launched?

Thanks,
Herb Miller

Hi,
inside your RCP app, you should simply get your commandine and
applications args with:
Platform.getApplicationArgs()
and
Platform.getCommandLineArgs()

Greetings

Heiko

In addition, they're available in your application start(*) method:

args = (String[]) applicationContext.getArguments().get(
IApplicationContext.APPLICATION_ARGS);
