hi,

i'm trying to get a preferences hierarchy implemented in my rcp application and i don't know how.

so far i've added the extension points org.eclipse.ui.preferencePages and org.eclipse.core.runtime.preferences to my pluging. i've added a PreferencePage entry to the first extension point:

public class PluginPreferencesPage
extends FieldEditorPreferencePage
implements IWorkbenchPreferencePage {

...
}

by doing this i get an entry at the preferences window on the left side for this preferencesPage. so far so good but what i cannot figure out is how to implement a preferences hierarchy in the left side tree navigation of the preferences window. actualy i'm searching for the solution on how to add sub nodes under the entry of my preferences page in the tree navigation.

at the moment i assume that i have to work with scopes but this is realy just an assumption.

could someone please give me a hint on how to do this?

thx,
greez,

dirk

In your extension point, you need to set the category of the child
preference page to point to the parent preference page.
