Hello,

I want to register and create preference pages at runtime, wthout use of the 'org.eclipse.ui.preferencePages.page' Extensionpoint.
Is this possible? and if yes, how?

Thanks,
Jan

You can instantiate your own
org.eclipse.jface.preference.PreferenceDialog.PreferenceDial og(Shell,
PreferenceManager) with your own preference pages.

it won't be hooked up to the standard workbench preference system,
though, which is controlled by a subclass. See
org.eclipse.ui.internal.dialogs.WorkbenchPreferenceDialog.cr eateDialogOn(Shell,
String)

Paul,

Can you take a look at this "related" post?
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/237702/

Maybe you can explain that behavior.

Thanks.
