I am a beginner in eclipse RCP.
I am trying to use AbstractHandler.setBaseEnabled() for control of the handler state. But it is not enough clear how to call this method externally because it is private.
May be there is another way to control of enable state of handler programmically at runtime?

At runtime in my application there are different situations which are not relating to workbench. According with these states I should change the status of menu/toolbar commands (items): visible, enabled, text and icon.
I know about the "enableWhen" and "activeWhen" conditions for the commands in plugin.xml but it supports only the workbench status.
You didn't really answer my questions, and that makes it difficult to actually help you. But I'll make 4 assumptions and provide an answer anyway
visibleWhen, enabledWhen and activeWhen are core expressions, which support property testers  . You can write a property tester that examines your "situations" and returns the correct enabled state. When your "situation" changes, you use org.eclipse.ui.services.IEvaluationService.requestEvaluation(String) to have the framework re-evaluate those expressions (updating the commands).
To update text and icons, your handler needs to implement org.eclipse.ui.commands.IElementUpdater. When you "situation" needs to update text, you use org.eclipse.ui.commands.ICommandService.refreshElements(String, Map).
