Hello everybody!

After few days of code, I created a plugin that changes the background color specific items on a navigator.

Well, it works fine, but there is a lack of features as I'm using eclipse PDT as IDE and for my plug-in and I extended the class CommonNavigator...

I would like to have your help, to know how I can proceed to extend the PHPExplorer navigator instead?

I tried few thing but nothing worked for me...


Thanks a lot helping me doing this Wink

PS : If you want to try my plug-in, you can go to my freshly created blog : http://www.dipherence.com/2011/03/20/full-coloured-eclipse-n avigator-plug-in/

Thank you!

I'm not clear what kind of problem you have.
Such as "doesn't work" is meaningless.

Well, sorry, I'll try to be more precise.

I tried to extend PHPExplorer as I did for CommonNavigator.

The PHPExplorer class was apparently not made for class extension as it doesn't appears in eclipse in a package (I imported all the PDT packages), so I do not know what to extend.

I also tried to copy the PDT sources and put it in my project but lots of classes returned compilation errors so I guess that it's not the right way to do it.

I don't know if my problem is now more understandable, I hope so Smile

I just want some directions to know how to do the same for the PHPExplorer navigator, as I did for the CommonNavigator.

Thank you =)

???
You have Eclipse SDK, if you installed PDT SDK on it, you can create plugins based on PDT.
Basic steps for example, for example,
1. Install Eclipse SDK
2. Install PDT SDK Feature on it from helios repository(Install New Software>Helios)
3. Create new plugin project
4. Add following plugins to 'Dependencies'
org.eclipse.php.core
org.eclipse.php.ui
org.eclipse.dltk.core
org.eclipse.dltk.ui
5. Create new class which extends PHPExplorerPart instead of CommonNavigator?
