Is there a "correct" way to avoid the Discouraged access: The method getPerspectiveBar() from the type WorkbenchWindow is not accessible due to restriction on required library C:\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench_3.6.1.M20100826- 1330.jar

This is the code i use to DISABLE the Perspective Toolbar context Menu:

private void disablePerspectiveToolbarMenu() {

PerspectiveBarManager perspectiveBarManager = ((WorkbenchWindow) PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow()).getPer spectiveBar();

//perspectiveBar existe?
if (perspectiveBarManager!=null){
ToolBar toolBar = perspectiveBarManager.getControl();
Listener[] listeners = toolBar.getListeners(SWT.MenuDetect);
if (listeners != null){
for (Listener listener : listeners){
toolBar.removeListener(SWT.MenuDetect, listener);
}
}
}
}

Thanks.

No, you've hacked into internals. That code won't function on eclipse
4.1, for example, where the PerspectiveBarManager has been replaced with
something completely different.

You can choose to have the perspective switcher or not using
org.eclipse.ui.application.IWorkbenchWindowConfigurer.setSho wPerspectiveBar(boolean)
but it is not customizable beyond that (except possibly with some minor
preferences).

I think it would be very useful to implement a way to have a more versatile "PerspectiveBar".

Im my case, for instance, i just need a PLAIN simple perspective bar. No context menus, no extra options, nothing.

Thanks.

Thanks. I've looked into it, tried to adapt to my code, but the result was not what i was expecting. Too far from the original PerspectiveBar behavior which i think should be more versatile.
